Back in the Seventies in Toronto, teenagers used to grab on to the back of a bus or car and hitch a ride, sliding along in the snow. Naturally, the laws of physics caught up with the daring kids and there were some deaths. It was great fun until it wasn’t. As you might expect, the city’s police began cracking down on the action and it ceased to be a thing.
Just because common sense prevailed doesn’t mean that it applies everywhere. Meet German speed freak Dirk Auer. This guy takes “bumper hitching” to a whole new level, attaching himself to all sorts of speedy machines and gliding along on some crazy looking roller blades. This newest video of Auer in action features him being towed along by a Dodge Challenger SRT8 to about 200 km/h.
This guy is nuts!
