This Armless Professional Drifter Drives His Skyline Using Only His Feet

Gerard May 19, 2015 12:21

Follow your dreams and never let anything get in your way. We reckon that’s the motto that Bartosz Ostalowski lives by because not only is he a professional drifter, he executes his craft using just both his feet.

Born in 1986, Ostalowski unfortunately met with an accident back in 2006 which saw him lose both his arms. However, that didn’t dissuade him from his love and passion for cars as Ostalowski soon returned behind the wheel driving solely with his feet – one for the pedals and the other for steering.

Where some of us struggle to even drift a car with all four limbs, Ostalowski competes in drifting competitions across Europe in a modified Nissan Skyline R34 customised with an automatic transmission to make drifting possible for him.

Just from the videos themselves, it is amazing to watch him at work, making his Skyline dance at will, sliding from corner to corner while doing so on wet roads.

If there’s ever an inspiration that we should never allow adversity to deter us from our goals, Bartosz Ostalowski is just that.

About Gerard

My first impressions of a dream car should be a ridiculous top speed with physics defying cornering capabilities, namely the Ferraris, Paganis and what not. Deep down, I just want something that makes you feel special when you drive it, expensive or not.
