Racecar driver Kuba Przygonski part of the ORLEN Team has established a new Guinness world record for fastest drift.

The car used for the record-breaking attempt was a heavily modified Toyota GT86 outputting no less than 1,068 bhp (796 kW). It happened on September 3 when the driver was able to reach an impressive average speed of 136.23 mph (217.97 km/h) and established a new speed record while drifting. The run took place on an ex-military airport in Biala Podlaska, Poland where Kuba Przygonski successfully pulled off a maximum slip angle of 49 degrees and had an entry speed of 159 mph (256 km/h).

As a side note, we remind you the world record for longest drift belongs to BMW Performance Center instructor Johan Schwartz who drifted a stock 2013 BMW M5 for 51.278 miles (82.520 km) earlier this year in May on the Performance Center skid pad.
