About three years ago, Rob had a dirt bike crash, which left him paralyzed, but he never gave up on his passion for driving and drifting. He has built an awesome Nissan 180 SX car that is packing an engine that produces 600 HP, and he is drifting the hell out of it. And besides drifting, Rob is trying to set an example and share his patent for (only) hand controlled car, and gives a chance to others who are facing the same problem, to also realize their dreams about drifting fast and powerful cars, just like the regular people do.
Meeting and watching people who have certain physical disability, but with a big heart and great will and passion for driving cars, is one of the subjects which we always enjoy writing about. And that is because of the admiration and utter respect that we feel for these guys, who never let the burden of life take over, but continue to fight and make their dreams come true.
If you remember, not so long ago, we had an article about the Polish pro-drifter who had lost both of his arms in an accident, but still continues to drift his car and compete professionally. Today we have prepared a video with a similar story, about a guy from Canada named Rob Parsons, also known as “The Chairslayer”, and I think that you can guess where that nickname is coming from.
So watch the video below that we have prepared for you, and listen to Rob`s story. And if you want to find out more about Rob Parsons` Chairslayer Foundation and read about his Nissan 180 SX, click here.
