The record was set at Samsun in Turkey on 15 July. The attempt took place on a track that measured 235.5m and Müller managed to complete 612 laps in 2 hours, 25 minutes and 18 seconds driving a standard Toyota GT86.
Under Guinness World Record rules, any type of vehicle may be used for an attempt, with a drift defined as being performed when there is a speed differential between the driven wheels of the vehicle and its ground speed.

The almost 90-mile drift smashes the previous record of 11,180 metres that was held by Lebanese rally driver Abdo Feghali that was set in 2013.
