Russian Dirt Track RacingApril 20th, 2014
Here’s some great POV footage of a race in Russia in which competitors drive cheap hatchbacks, at times driving dangerously close to one another. While it’s clearly not as fast as dirt track racing here in America, these guys have to deal with many more hairpin twists and turns, and thick clouds of dirt, rocks and mud flying in their faces the whole time.
The guy in this video faces a stall around 45 seconds into the clip, but manages to get going again, eventually catching up to the pack.
Be sure to do a freeze-frame at 1:12, and you’ll notice that one of the cars has flipped over on the track while other drivers continue past.
