April 14 (UPI) — A race car driver in China took his vehicle out onto the ice covering a frozen lake and drifted continuously for 3.87 miles to break a Guinness World Record.
Guinness World Records said Wang Dongjiang, 58, drifted for 3.87 miles on a makeshift track atop Meilong Lake in Meilongkou, Jilin Province.
The drift took the car around the track 23 times and the drift lasted for about 15 minutes, Guinness said.
Wang, a professional driver, previously placed second and third in his appearances at the China Drifting Competition.
