Can you drift a truck?
Drifting. You either love it or hate it. You either see the point behind taking a car right to the edge of its limit, manage to hold it there and keep grinning ear to ear while you invite yourself into a slide-fest or you would rather steer the car as the road bends. But then again, most people including me have witnessed this skill being applied only to cars and sometimes even bikes. What about something bigger?
What about a truck? What about a vehicle more than double the size of a sports car? Ever seen or imagined that big chunk of mass slithering about a track? Nope? Me too. But now, we can.
Astonishing can be one of the few words, one can use to describe this incredible feat, while the mind searches for far more fancier adjectives. Once again, Goodwood Festival of Speed stands tall as a podium where one can witness some bewildering acts. The more recent one includes a 10-tonne, 1000bhp Kamaz Dakar truck going sideways and turning rubber into smoke.
Usually, people find it difficult to even steer a truck but the skilled driver of this one knew far more than that. Sliding around sideways consistently for more than 3 minutes, it truly is, an incredible, incredible effort to execute something like this. Truly exceptional!
