If you're into motorsport, the Dakar Rally is definitely one of the highlights on the calendar. 2020's edition was held for the first time in Saudi Arabia and I was fortunate to attend. 

I reckon it would shock you to know that the most impressive vehicles seen were the trucks and not the cars, bikes or buggies. 

Nope, to witness a block of flats with over 850kW hurtling pass me at a dizzying speed is unbelievable. And that brings me to the Kamaz Master Truck, one of the protagonists in this amazing clip. 

It pits five-time Turkish Rally Championship winner Yagiz Avci up against Dmitry Sotnikov - two-time Silk Way Rally champion in the incredible Kamaz truck. 

Their playground is the world's most dangerous road: Turkey's D-195.

Red Bull offers some background on this piece of road: "Built by Turks and Russians together in 1915, the terrifying hairpin bends on the foot of Soganli Mountain are seen as one of the toughest road challenges."

This 100km-long stretch of road will leave you breathless, and that's from behind your screen, and your palms sweaty. I'd love to drive on it, but no ways would I race on it. 

Let's leave that to the professionals.
