The American drifting champion, Vaughn Gitten Jnr, has become the first person to drift around the entire 13 miles of the Nürburgring circuit in his modified 5.0-litre Ford Mustang RTR. Whilst previous records have been all about speed, Gitten's lap, for which no lap-time has been released and which consumed three sets of tyres, was all about "having a good time, not a lap-time." As a result, the Mustang spent the whole attempt sideways, as you might expect. The car was modified with a 65-degree steering lock and a performance kit by RTR in order to complete the record run.
