PostSubject: Mercedes Benz plans to do a 10000 feet powerslide.   Mon Jun 20, 2011 11:29 pm


Mercedes-Benz aims to top the current world record for the longest-ever powerslide this weekend at the Brooklands circuit in Surrey in the United Kingdom.

Mercedes driver Mauro Calo will spend about four minutes sliding either an E63 or a C63 AMG sedan in a 55-mph, third-gear drift. The goal is to rack up 10,000 feet (nearly two miles) sideways, obliterating the existing record of 8,000 feet.

Calo will slide around the narrow perimeter of the track, which is barely as wide as a car is long, for 12 laps. This leaves next to no room for error, but Calo said he is 100 percent confident that he will make the slide.
