Red Bull athlete Abdo Fenghali has set a new world record for the longest ever continuous drift.
The Lebanese rally driver took his Chevrolet Camaro SS over to Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, home of the Abu Dhabi Formula One Grand Prix, to attempt the record, with a team from the Guinness World Records on-hand to authenticate the achievement.
In the end, Feghali didn't just break the record – he obliterated it, doubling the previous record with a huge 11,180 meters drift.
