About the director:
" I´m a 26 year old amateur filmmaker from Norway, that has a huge interest in motorsport. I started out with my first videocamera two years ago. And now I have a Sony PMW Ex1 and a Canon 7d. Over the years the norwegian motorsport scene has mostly been Rallying but in the later years drifting as grown as a sport as well. I have startet a website called www.autobloggen.net to contribute as much footage from the track as I can. Hope you like my videos. "
R1 Go Kart Passes a Cop
This is a one of a kind custom frame built specifically for this engine. One of the previous owners told me the gentlemen that bought it from him had it up to 170mph. This kart is wicked.
WATCH TILL THE END, A POLICE CAR PASSES IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION!! If your impatient to watch 10 minutes of video, skip to 7:50 and watch till the end for the best part.
2005 Yamaha R1 Sport Bike engine in a Beisse Shifter Kart. Around 180 HP, weighs about 220lbs. Previous owner had Kart up to 181 mph before a tire blew out. Using GoPro Hero High Def camera with adhesive mount.
NOTE: The rear tires are worn out so the driver didn't do anything to crazy. The ending was edited out to protect the driver.
Location: Northern Michigan
Here are a couple videos of the previous owner; where the speedo read 181mph and spun out.
