Adams will have to keep this up for up for at least 145km.

Johannesburg - South African motoring journalist Jesse Adams will attempt to get his name into Guinness World Records by attempting the world’s longest car drift this coming Monday.

Adams, a writer for IOL as well as its sister print title Star Motoring, needs to drift a car continuously for longer than the existing record of 144.126km, set in 2014 by Germany’s Harald Müller in a rear wheel drive Toyota 86 on a skidpan in Turkey.

Adams, also at the wheel of a Toyota 86, will attempt the record on the wet skidpan of the Gerotek test centre west of Pretoria. It’s estimated that he will need to drift continuously for between five and seven hours to achieve the feat.
