Mercedes-Benz World to stage power slide record attempt

Nic Cackett

Watching serious power sliding is a little like being a spectator at professional darts or championship snooker; something very technically difficult is being made to look very easy right in front of your eyes.

Of course there's a bit more noise and tyre smoke trackside, but that's part of the fun. There's certainly going to be a lot a Brooklands this weekend, where a Mercedes demo driver plans to stage an attempt at the longest power slide world record.
