A Vision of Future Racing That's Gone All 'Mad Max'
Hankook Tire has come up with a crazy video that imagines the future of racing going completely off the rails. It's part Mad Max with drivers running each other off the road and car bits flying everywhere and part Speed Racer with fantastic gadgets. The video features three very different Hankook Tire products of the future that would help drivers navigate any terrain and overcome any obstacles thrown in their direction. The Boostrac tire has thick knobby bits that expand and contract depending on changing desert terrain. RELATED: See Photos of the 1960 Saab 96 Rally Car
There's also the Alpike which has studs and gaps that make it the perfect tire for handling snowy weather. To round things out, there's the HyBlade which will let you drive on water. They also each look incredibly cool and will make you want to go get some new tires, just because.
These concepts were developed with the University of Design, Engineering and Business in Pforzheim, Germany to showcase where tire technology could go in the coming years. If it leads to races as insane as the one in this video, then let's get this tech moving along and make it a real thing right now.
