Friday Video: Datsun 260Z Drifts Through Zandvoort, Sorta


If  anything, the Dutch rival the Japanese for television weirdness, so we’ll ignore the plot of this Bassie & Adriaan episode and cut straight to the chase. In it, a Datsun 260Z pursues a clown in a Matra Rancho. There are some primitive attempts at drifting and pointless 360s, but it’s fun to watch this brown bandit scooting across the Netherlands’ Zandvoort circuit. Video below the fold.

    i bet the clown be more happy to be in the 260z than the tatra, LOL, the producers might have not guessed the Datsun to be an awesome car to drive

    I have seen this before, I believe Bassie & Adriaan have a matching trailer (caravan) for the Matra. (Dig that crazy soundtrack.)

    Those 360s are not pointless, haha
    Not much of a chase if the chaser is in front.

    Great to see you guys liked it!
    They do indeed have a matching caravan. Later on they replaced the Matra for a second generation Honda Prelude with eyelashes on the popup lights. From that moment onwards it went horribly wrong with these series! :D :D
