Meet the Most Amazing Drifter in the World; Pole Who Lost Both Arms will Leave You Speechless

|

We might not know them personally, but there are people around us in this world who inspire us to stretch our abilities and come out of our comfort zones to make our life meaningful.

One such gifted individual is Bartek Ostalowski from Poland. What makes Ostalowski so special is that while he had the misfortune of losing both of his arms in an accident back in 2006, he never let go of his life or his passion for motorsports and cars.

In fact, the 26-year old Pole did the exact opposite pursuing his dreams of becoming a professional racing driver. He not only competed in the Polish Championship Rally Raceway Cross and the Polish Cup, but now he's also mastering the art of drifting.

Just watching Ostalowski powerslide his Nissan Skyline GT-T R34 will leave you dumbfounded – yes, he's that good.

So how does he do it? Well, he uses his right foot to control the pedals and his left to steer the car, while a special contraption allows him to use his shoulder to change gears on the automatic transmission with manual shift mode.

It’s as amazing as it sounds, but don't take our word for it, check out the videos for yourself after the break. (You may also want to see this video on YouTube of Ostalowski operating his street-legal car.)
