Crazy "Sidewalk Skiing" in The Saudi Desert
So I was taking this road trip in Saudi Arabia the other day, and all of a sudden, I see this on the road! Okay, I wasn't really in Saudi Arabia, but what you're seeing is the latest craze over there. They call it "sidewalk skiing." And they're taking it seriously too! Al-Mustaheel is the team captain of the "Impossible Group." That's him there in the blue bandana, just, uh, chilling out on the car. [Al-Mustaheel, Imposable Group Team Captain]: "I raise the car on two wheels and drive it on the right and left sides. I do a lot of acrobatic movements, including taking the tires off (while driving) to jump on the sidewalks of the road while driving on two wheels, driving in the desert, lots of things really, with small and large cars, and any car.'' Hm, so he can do this with ANY car eh? Just as well his team members aren't concerned that this may be a little dangerous. [Sahoot, Impossible Group Team Member]: "Unlike the hand break turn movements, unlike accidents, it is possible to get into a minor accidents. Risk is involved in everything, but there's not much danger in this." I thought it would have been dangerous, but Sahoot says it's not, so I guess it's not dangerous. Now this isn't the first crazy, yet completely safe, motorsport that the Sudis have thought up. Check out this video from a while back. These guys seem to be driving on a highway in a semi-urban area so I'm guessing they are going at least 40 miles an hour, maybe even 50 or 60. What kind of shoes are they wearing that the soles don't completely burn through and leave their feet being shredded on the road. Anyway, whether it is changing the wheels of a car driving on two wheels, or elegantly skating on the surface of the highway, the Saudi's certainly do have a passion for motorsport. But what do you think? Are these sports dangerous? Leave your comments below, don't forget to like, subscribe...but most importantly, don't try this at home!
Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.
