Who Wins This Drift Battle: A 1,000-HP GT86 Or An Aerobatic Helicopter?

Red Bull

Helicopter drifting is the next big thing.

Red Bull has been keeping pretty damn busy this summer. We recently saw the Austrian energy drink company pit a skier against a rally driver and now we have this: synchronized drifting between a helicopter and car. The helicopter is piloted by none other than Felix Baumgartner, aka the man who skydived from space. The car is a 1,000-horsepower Toyota GT86 driven by pro drifter Jakub Przygonski. The goal here is for Baumgartner to match the movement of the GT86, which isn’t that easy given the whole drifting thing.

So, can he do it? You’ll just have to watch this video tofind out.
