It was a record that was just waiting to be broken – and the previous fastest drift set by Jakub Przygoński of Poland has been broken by Japanese drift champion and title holder for the Japanese drifting series, Masato Kawabata.

The latter used a specially prepared 2016 Nissan GT-R for the insane 304.96 km/h drift with a 30-degree angle. The venue was Fujairah International Airport, UAE.

The GT-R which was tuned by GReddy Trust had 1380 hp at its disposal, all going to the rear wheel. The car was set up for agility while maintaining stability and confidence-inspiring handling characteristics – essential when performing such challenging feats.

GReddy Trust’s technicians worked on the specially tuned MY16 Nissan GT-R setup on site in the three days leading up to the event and had only three attempts to break the record as per strict guidelines set by Guinness World Records.

Fujairah International Airport was strategically chosen for its 3 km long airstrip which was deemed to be sufficiently long enough for the challenge.

From the outset, Nissan wanted to perform the drift at a speed of more than 300km/h and Kawabata was chosen from a group of highly specialised competition drivers.
