This one is very impressive and it took our record holder (Naji Bou Hassan – Lebanon) over two years of training & preparation to perform and succeed in this record. He managed to drift 5 cars at once, making them all perform donuts. This was done by driving one car at a time, putting into a donut and then locking the accelerator down so that the car would continue doing donuts on its path. Naji would then jump out of the car and start up the next one. This one is so spectacular that we had to include a video.
