Helicopter chases drifting racecar. Yes, really!

*NOW UPDATED WITH VIDEO. Ever seen a helicopter chasing down a drifting race car? Well, neither had we!

[Not a valid template]

In this video from Red Bull, the man behind the space jump world record Felix Baumgartner clearly needed more excitement in his life because he’s chasing a drifting race car… in a helicopter.

With Felix at the controls of a Bolkov BO105 aerobatic helicopter and Polish drifter Jakub Przygoński in his 986bhp Toyota GT86, the aim was to see how close the chopper could track the movements of the racecar.

And, if you’re anything like us, the RC car and helicopter at 2m 23s just makes this whole vid more awesome.
