Many things can go wrong during a drag race, but we cannot think of anything more embarrassing than heading towards the opposite direction once the green light comes on.
It all happened earlier this week when a Toyota pickup truck driver was performing the traditional tire-warm up procedure by sprinting back and forth. Unfortunately for the Toyota driver, he forgot to get the gearbox out of reverse the last time he did it before the race, so once it started, instead of going forward…he went backwards!
"The fool driving the toyota bakkie does a burnout and then leaves the car in reverse gear and takes off in the wrong direction !!! Crowd went nuts !!," wrote the person who filmed and uploaded the clip on YouTube.
See it for yourself, right after the break.
