Covering over 3,044 miles (4,900km) in three days, driving specialist Gerhard Plattner is gearing up for his next record-breaking attempt as the first driver to reach three continents in just three days. On June 8, Plattner and his co-pilot Franz Doppler will depart from Rabat, Morocco, in an Audi A3 1.9 TDI e with the goal of reaching the Asian side of Istanbul in Turkey no more than 72 hours later.
Gerhard Plattner has already circled the globe seven times in attempts to set new records. His latest route will present an enormous challenge to the team’s endurance, driving skill and physical fitness, as well as proving the reliability of the car itself.
