BMW Drifts an M5 for 8 Hours, Refueling it Mid-Drift!

They also accomplished the world’s longest “Twin-Vehicle Drift”, with another M5 drifting 49.25 miles over an hour. But the highlight of the day was the refueling system that BMW developed to accomplish the 8 hour drift.

About half way through the world record, a previous gen M5 was tasked to refuel the main car mid-drift.
