Video: Are Kamaz Trucks the coolest machines ever?

The Truck Class at the Dakar Rally has become the one-to-watch thanks to the seemingly physics defying antics of the 9.5-ton, 1000PS-plus Russian-built Kamazs.

We have seen their hair-raising runs up the Hill at the Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard but this video from Red Bull really showcases how jaw-droppingly capable these machines are. And how skilled and brave their drivers and crew.

From giant jumps in the snow, taking on a WRC stage to tandem drifting with Mad Mike’s Mazda MadBul and then a frankly terrifying run up what is dubbed ‘the world’s most dangerous road’ this video is a very worthy diversion for a Friday, even if you end up watching some of it from between your fingers.

For a little extra, watch a Kamaz truck jump Mad Mike’s Lamborghini Huracan.
