Rally Car Vs. Rally Truck

Jari-Matti Latvala (FIN) , Airat Mardeev (RUS) perform during Ouninpohja Jump 2016 in Ounipohja on August 1. 2016

Rally cars are everything we love about motor racing. Take a completely sensible family hatchback, throw away all the sensibleness. 300+ horsepower 4 wheel drive and enough suspension to tackle the world’s toughest stages. To get the most out of them you need drivers with very large man-parts. Even the ladies, yup they have them too. It is safe to assume we enjoy Rally Racing a lot.

This brings me to the Rally Truck portion, and when we say truck we mean a full on diesel-powered behemoth capable of monstering¬†the deserts of the Dakar Rally. These things are rolling proof that the laws of physics can be bludgeoned into submission. To watch these things go at full chat is nothing short of mind bending. Your brain can’t comprehend the things it can do.

So the natural thing to do was to put them on the same course at the same time and throw in some sweet techno music from the late 90s and see what happens. Special thanks to Red Bull for putting this whole thing together.
