NOISE NOISE NOISE NOISE uh-oh…
In case you’ve ever wondered why hill-climb cars have massive rear wings, take a look at this video.
Shot at the Race to the Sky event in New Zealand, we’re treated to some awesome footage of Nobuhiro ‘Monster’ Tajima‘s custom Toyota flying up the hill at Highlands Motorsport Park. But then there’s a bodywork failure, which takes out the huge spoiler and instantly removes downforce from the back of the car. The result? A slightly scary loss of control.
Thankfully the car stays the right way up, and Monster emerges completely unscathed. Half an hour later, he’s joking and signing autographs. Phew!
