Hulkenberg meets world class drifter Bartek Ostalowski in epic challenge

.

Nico Hulkenberg is obviously no slouch behind the wheel of a racing car, but what he witnessed from the armless Bartek Ostalowski had him stunned. 

In case the name doesn't ring a bell, Ostalowski is a an incredible petrol head from Poland who lost both arms after a horrific accident ten years ago.

It was devastating blow for the aspiring racing driver but it didn't get in the way of his high-octane ambitions.

After a period of recovery, he got back behind the wheel to teach himself how to drive... with his feet!

Using a specially modified Nissan R34 Skyline, the 30-year-old uses his right foot to control the pedals, while his left foot steers. Amazingly, Ostalowski became the first driver with no arms to gain a racing licence.

His current field of expertise is drifting, and in this video he runs circles - quite literally - around Nico Hulkenberg.
