Known as the “Green Hell”, the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife, in Germany, is a must‑drive destination for petrolheads around the world. Even for experienced drivers, it can be demanding.

 

So how about drifting the full 20.7-kilometre circuit?

 

That’s exactly what champion drifter Vaughn Gittin Jnr has done – behind the wheel of his 900hp Ford Performance 5.0 Aluminator XS powered Ford Mustang RTR Drift car, the first time the feat has been accomplished. *

 

For Gittin Jnr is all about having a “good time, not a lap time”. But he still hit speeds in excess of 240 km/h, shredded three sets of tyres, and maxed out in sixth gear on the sideways entries into the bends.
