Ford has made an incredible push in the world of motorsports in just the past few years. Their recruitment of viral video star Ken Block, and the Formula Drift success of Vaughn Gittin Jr., are just a few highlights from their all-star racing roster. But there is one driver who still manages to stand out in this who’s who of incredible racing talent.
We are speaking of Tanner Foust, who has been racing and stunt driving since 2005. And in just a few short years he has rocketed to success, landing a coveted spot as co-host of Top Gear America, as well as racking up an impressive resume of racing achievements.
This week the action focuses on getting a Mustang GT sideways, opening up with a great shot of Foust getting sideways on an isolated drift track. Once again, we are back at the Octane Academy, where Ford took several die-hard fans and put them in a competition to turn them into race car drivers.
Foust talks about the trials and tribulations of trying to train someone to drift a Mustang properly. Foust has a young man named Frankie under his wing, and Foust finds Frankie’s cautious attitude to be a boon when it comes to testing. And that is just the first half of the video.
See, life of Tanner Foust is never quiet. After teaching Frankie to drift, Foust hopes behind the wheel of the new 2013 Focus ST, and there is also mention of a meeting with Hot Wheels in the morning. We wonder if that will be in the next episode of life in the Foust lane? One thing is for sure, this man never rests.
