There's driver skill and then there's plain old driver courage.
The following footage was shot at Supersprint UAE, and it is absolutely dumbfounding. It shows what would be a fairly normal sight at an event like this: a drag race between some hypercars, namely a McLaren P1, Bugatti Veyron and Bugatti Vitesse. But this one is taking place on an unlit runway at night. The only light is coming from the cars’ headlights, and with that, if there’s something in front of you when you’re at 200+ mph, you’ll never see it until after you hit it.
But of course the really ballsy move is on the part of the guys sitting on the side of the track by the finish line.
