Drifting This Lebanese Hill Climb Takes Massive Balls And Truck-Loads Of Talent

Watch as the tail-happy Garo Haroutiounian tears up the tricky Falougha Hill Climb in his E46 BMW 330Ci , with bonus footage of the course record-smashing Evo

Remind me later

What you see above is the legendary Garo Haroutiounian, an Armenian racing driver famous for his fantastically sideways hill climb technique. This isn’t the first time, or even the second time, he’s featured on CT, and this year’s run up the Falougha Hill Climb in Lebanon proves he’s still got that mad talent we all love him for.

This year he didn’t take the fastest time of the day, though. That honour went to Lebanese racer Roger Feghali in his Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI. Check out his run below; it sounds like gunfire crackling off the hillside!
