BMW, makers of supremely expensive cars, recently smashed a world record in a pretty spectacular and daring way. They wanted to achieve the world’s longest ever drift at 8 hours long, but there was a problem. How do you refuel when driving continually in a circle for that long? You can really stop at the petrol station, so the BMW people came up with an genius solution involving a stuntman and another very skilled driver.
Drifting in driving terms is basically driving around in circles as smoothly as possible, but only in the kind of safe controlled environments of a race track and with professional drivers, so don’t ask your parents to try this move on the school run! Leave it to the pros.
