BMW's 2018 M5 shatters world record for longest sustained drift; was refueled on the fly
 

 
NEW RECORD IN [GERMAN] AUTO ENGINEERING!

Had to be refueled five times midway without breaking the drift sequence once!

BMW recently used its all-new 2018 M5 sedan to reclaim the Guinness World Record for world’s longest continual drift. With BMW driving instructor Johan Scwartz behind the wheel of the 600-horsepower super sedan, the German automaker smashed the 102-mile mark set by Toyota last year with a drift that ran 232.5 miles long.



The incredible record required Schwartz to drift around a skid pad at the BMW Performance Centre for a total of eight hours. That amount of driving can’t be done without stopping to fuel up, and the rules permitted Schwartz to do so.



However, BMW decided to up the ante and make this one long continuous drift by using a car-to-car mid-run refueling system inspired by the same method used for in-flight aircrafts. The innovative system consisted of a F10 M5, an extra fuel cell, a high-pressure hose and one fearless stuntman whose job was to fill up the record-breaking car while drifting alongside it.



“We knew going in that if we were going to recapture the world record for longest sustained drift and set the bar as high as possible, we would need to find a way to keep the M5 going without stopping to refuel,” explained Schwartz. “In the end, the refueling system worked flawlessly and the M5 performed as expected. It was a big win all around.”



The “system” was utilized about five times to refuel the 2018 M5, and in the process helped BMW set another record for longest twin vehicle drift with a distance of 49.25 miles in one hour.



It’ll be interesting see how Toyota responds to this impressive feat, as the Japanese automaker previously took the record from BMW back in 2013. However the two brands’ rivalry plays out, we’re just impressed by anyone who can spent 8 straight hours behind the wheel of a car drifting in a giant circle with no bathroom breaks.

Yup, nice observation. Passing of the torch per se.

BMW has achieved two Guinness World Records after new M5 drifts 232.5 miles and twin-vehicle drift goes on for nearly 50 miles.


BMW has broken the Guinness World Record for the longest drift and longest twin-vehicle drift at the firm’s Performance Centre in South Carolina.


The main record was the longest single-car drift, which saw BMW driving instructor Johan Schwartz drift a 2017 BMW M5 for 232.5 miles over the course of eight hours. The distance shattered the previous record set in a Toyota GT86 last year by 143 miles.

However, it’s not just the record itself that’s impressive. Drifting a car at high revs in a low gear for a prolonged period of time results in terrible miles per gallon figures, so running out of fuel is a real problem.


To overcome this, a second fuel tank was fitted to the previous record-holder, but BMW went for something much more elaborate. A second M5 entered the skid pad when the record-setting car’s tank was low, with an engineer hanging out of the window with a specially adapted rig that would allow them to refuel on the go.

Matt Butts, of automotive components specialist Detroit Speed, was the man tasked with connecting the pump. He said: “Although we practised the refuelling several times before the Guinness World Record title attempt, there was very little margin for error.


Footage released by BMW shows the cars touching during the five successful refuelling attempts, but both managed to keep on track.


Schwartz was joined by fellow BMW instructor Matt Mullins in a second M5 to take the record for the longest twin-vehicle drift. The pair managed 49.25 miles in one hour, beating the previous record of 17.72 miles set in 2014.

The new BMW M5 was announced last year, and marks the first time the super-saloon has come with all-wheel drive – though there’s a so-called ‘drift mode’ that allows it to become rear-wheel drive at the push of a button. Power comes from a 4.4-litre turbocharged V8 engine that makes 592bhp and 750Nm of torque, while the 0-60mph time is 3.2 seconds.
