Nissan Middle East set the record today at the launch of the "Nissan 370Z Drift Experience", a partnership between Nissan and the Prodrift Academy drifting school in Dubai.

The record was set by a Nissan 350Z and 370Z drifting in tandem along a closed slick-surface figure-eight course on their second attempt. The two cars, driven by instructors of the school, drifted together for 28.52 kilometers (17.72 miles).
