It just...the madness begins immediately, and for five minutes, it does not stop.
What’s cool here isn’t necessarily the driving—though some of those drifts and flips are incredibly precise—but the design of the track itself, which has been meticulously arranged to allow for a car to be flung through it at top-speed with only millimetres to spare on every side. Rather than a car racing around a track, it’s a case of the track being built around the car, with much of the work here being done by the course design and Trackmania’s physics, the driver needing only to push forwards on the controller and make the occasional adjustment.
The amount of time that must have gone into lining everything up just boggles the mind.
This clip was actually recorded back in 2013, and the internet being as cruel as it is, it lay dormant for years until it got some traction this week. Glad it’s finally getting the love and admiration it deserves though, because holy shit.
