The first truck in the world to drive balanced on its rear wheels
During the first Truck Grand Prix on Paul Ricard circuit, Patrick BOURNY achieved a world premiere with this performance. This truck stunt was pictured in the James Bond movie “License to kill”
Wheeling Truck Show
In the program :
Patrick BOURNY (the truck stuntman) steers his truck by a subtle and quick play between gas pedal and brakes. Of course, no abutment to maintain the balance on the truck rear wheels. He can drive wheeling the all range of the track and performs a show where he interchanges between :
- Speed-ups, wheeling at high speed;
- Slow motion balance when Patrick is keeping the 12 tons of steel almost at a stop;
- Slalom between human cones;
- Circles (such as during the world record for German TV broadcast on ZDF : 4 rings within less than a minute, recorded on may 7th 2017 by the Guinness World Record);
- Truck dancing the walz.
- Minimum track : length 60 m x width 4 m.
(length 65.6 yards x width 4.38 yards)
- Surfacing : tar or pit run.
- Duration : 3x20min or 2x30min or 1x45min
