It’s the night before an Autokhana, you remember the handbrake (a vital ingredient to such an event) has never function, so what do you do!
Check out the video and pictures below.
Archimedes once said
“Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.”
I think that may have been crazy 200BC drunk talk…
But in the same spirit, I figured –
“When you want to drift and your hand brake don’t work – make a longer lever!”
This is what my mate Simon and I managed to do with a tent pole, a mountain hand grip and a lick of black paint (for reduced track side embarrassment.)
Why a quick solution – With the first day of the Motorkhana season fast approaching and the “Motorkhana Special” still lacking an engine, I though I can’t let a motorsport opportunity slip by so naturally I turned to the crumbling Galant.
- 1 tent pole
- Bicycle hand grip
- Approximately 2 beers.
