    Dont' know if anybody managed to get to MBW today but Mauro Calo managed to break the world record for power sliding and he did it in a C63. The tyre finally shredded as he past the line on his 8th lap but the Guinness officials said he succeeded so well done to him.

    Managed to get this video if anybody is interested.

    The outside rear tyre failure was .... somewhat pretictable:rolleyes:

    Given the information in this link, I can't get a little over 8 laps to add up to a record if the previous record stood at 8000 feet? Maybe it's just my maths:eek:

    My tyres last longer though!:devil:

    not sure i agree with the first part of your statement, you ever tried to keep a car in the drift like that? i mean even allowing for the fact i'm rubbish i doubt i'd get one full lap out
