Perfect Machine For A Hillclimb? A Semi Truck!

You read that correctly. I know what you’re thinking. There are many things you take up a classic Hillclimb course, mostly small, nimble sportscars.  Why? because traditional Hillclimb circuits tend to be narrow, twisty, and unforgiving to big lumbering vehicles. With that said one of the last things you’d ever expect to see go up a Hillclimb is a Semi Truck. But that is EXACTLY what you are going to see in this video. To be fair it is a “Racing” Truck however ludicrous that sounds and they’ve been racing the bastards for years. This particular truck has 1400 Horsepower and 5800 Nm of Torque (4277 ft-lb). By all accounts these things are absolute beasts that are in a never ending battle with the laws of physics. Thing is, as you will see below, they usually win. Oh and one more point, it drifts, so you got that to look forward to as well.
