Red Bull just rocks. We do quite like adding a dose of vodka to a glass of chilled Red Bull, even though Karens around the world say it’s a health risk, but over and above their range of energy drinks, the brand does some absolutely epic stuff with some of the world’s top athletes along with the best racecars and bikes on the planet. The stuff you can find in the Red Bull Content Pool covers just about every extreme sport there is, along with the best in motorsport, including things with the Oracle Red Bull Formula 1 team. These guys keep all these professional athletes busy during their downtime, and we’re all better off for it. The latest video published on the Red Bull Racing YouTube channel is even cooler because it has a bunch of South African content. For this round of awesome entertainment, the crew tries to find out how to get up the infamous Sani Pass as fast as possible. The main question was whether you could get up Sani Pass faster using two wheels or four wheels. To settle the debate, two of the world’s best Red Bull-sponsored athletes were roped in for the challenge. Representing four wheels, they recruited our very own Giniel de Villiers, a race driver with a brilliant record in various forms of motorsport. His weapon of choice for the challenge was the Toyota Hilux DKR T1, a monster of a Hilux that was built right here in SA. It features a twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 that churns out a healthy 298 kW with around 660 Nm of torque. It could be higher but the output is limited by the Dakar class rules as set out by the FIA.
Take a look at the YouTube video that pitches one of the best purpose-built 4x4s up against one of the best Hard Enduro bikes against each other in a race up the famed Sani Pass. To make it legit, Red Bul Athlese Giniel De Villiers and Wade Young are the starts of the show - along with funny man Jason Goliath: Dakar Rally Car VS Dirt Bike: Who is Quickest up Sani Pass? | Red Bull Motorsports
