ETS Drift Ute – Test Drive

Leading up to my final week of work for the year I was getting more and more frustrated, the issue I was having on the Hilux was really getting to me, with each passing day it was another potential test session over. Time was running out and so were my options.

With the problem solved I assessed all my options, my work (Ford) actually has a full test facility with a skid pan that I tried to use but in the end I was told it wasn’t available to me.

After a quick call to Vic Roads explaining what I wanted to do they saw no problem in giving me an unregistered vehicle permit as long as the car was safe, driven within all the road rules and used to conduct only the testing I needed to do.

After a quick drive I was happy there were no issues, unfortunately I couldn’t test the Hilux to its full ability on a closed course but the guys from 4 & Rotary Promotions are helping me out in that area.

Be sure to grab your tickets for the unveil evening in NZ and also help Matt film everything that goes down.
