Estonian Truck Rallying is Here to Restore Your Faith in Amateur Motorsports

And maybe make you think twice about old Soviet trucks.

The trucks you see here might appear to all be classics, but the fact that they aren’t belies the quality that makes them perfectly suited to amateur racing. The trucks were made by GAZ, a Soviet-era company which was so aggressively simplistic and utilitarian that styling was always comically outdated. That means that the trucks can now be bought for a song, and somehow converted into proper racing machines.

The video shows them tearing up some dirt roads and generally just being badass. We wholeheartedly approve.
