GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ Setting 2018 BMW M5 To Pace BMW Endurance Challenge At Daytona
Wednesday, January 10, 2018

In what may be a first, a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ holder will pace the BMW Endurance Challenge At Daytona on Friday, January 28th to open the North American racing season. The all-new 2018 BMW M5 recently added two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ titles to its list of automotive accolades.

On December 11, 2017, BMW driving instructor Johan Schwartz drifted an all-new BMW M5 sedan 232.5 miles around a skid pad at the BMW Performance Center in Greer, SC, setting a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Greatest distance vehicle drift in 8 hours. Schwartz shattered the previous record by 143 miles. A second GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Longest twin vehicle drift (water assisted) was also set on the same day by Schwartz and BMW Performance Center Chief Driving Instructor Matt Mullins.

Matt and his BMW Performance Center colleagues will be on hand again this year to give lucky fans the chance for a spirited ride in one of the Performance Center’s BMW M cars around the Daytona International Speedway road course throughout the Rolex 24 at Daytona weekend.
