Default Longest Horizontal Power Slide World Record

Found this on the Guiness Book of World Records website. Really impressive if you think about it...Just thought it was cool because de Banke did it in a GC8.

"The longest ever horizontal power slide in a car lasted 2 hours 11 minutes 18 seconds, and was performed by Britain's Simon de Banke on July 29, 2001, at the wet-grip circle at the MIRA Proving Ground, Nuneaton, Warwickshire, UK.

Simon drove a standard Subaru Impreza WRX 2001 on a surface of Bridgeport pebbles, which, when wet, are designed to have similar handling charateristics to compacted snow. To set the Guinness World Record, Simon was required to keep the car in a constant power slide without spinning, straightening up or changing lane for 15 minutes... although he managed to sustain this for well over 2 hours!"

If it was a 2001 in Europe or Japan it was a GD, not a GC.

actually, it looks more like a Version 4...the side mirrors appear to be the smaller late model ones. Either way, I guess the car used was a V7.

So the wing RS was used all the way to Ver. 4? I was under the impression that it was only Ver 1 and 2 with the RS wing
