Well, this is awkward. British magazineAutocar
gave an answer to a question that nobody ever asked; "Can two guys drift one car?"
Perhaps it would have been more realistic for the publication to ask, 'What can we do to attract more visitors and views on our YouTube channel?', but hey, we'll play along.Autocar's Matt Prior
turned to Mauro Calo, a former drift world record-holder, with a Subaru BRZ acting as the drift car of choice.
Using a stick connected to the throttle, the automotive journalist jumped in the rear bench, with Calo in the driver's seat, in charge of the brake, clutch and steering. In between having a good laugh and trying toprovide some feedback
, the two men proved that the Japanese sports car can do some figure-8 stunts and donuts.
For their next trick, Prior rode shotgun and put his right foot on the steering wheel, tocontrol the car
, while the professional drifter had to control the three pedals. Now, we're not sure if thisstunt works
, or how this helps in deciding on whether to go for a BRZ/86, but it does look fun, in a very, weird way...
