Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle by Icon Motorsports

HOLYSMOKEWTFBBQ you guys need to check out these videos by Icon Motorsports. Icon Motorsports is a company that bursts onto the scene and sets out to revolutionize the motorcycle apparel industry. Icon’s creators recognized a hole in the race-focused industry – the lack of protective apparel and helmets for the new ‘street’ biased rider.

The sequel to the Icon original video: Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle – Nick ‘Apex’ Brocha is back and this time he brought his Empire teammate, Ernie Vigil. The two are mounted on a pair of crackling Triumph Speed Triples – built by Roaring Toyz for the sole purpose of going sideways. Over the last year their quest to find the ultimate drifting playground has led them to the rolling hills of High Plains County. Low traffic, perfect asphalt and endless twisties have kept them busy resurfacing roads with their rear tires for weeks. The only problem is the local authorities have had enough. Enter Police Officer Dan Brockett, the only man with the muscle to keep these two in sight. His 550 horsepower Ford Mustang Cobra was built for speed and he’s got a license to use it…
