Tanner Foust Goes Back To 1980s, Drives Everything In ‘Quantum Drift’

If you were a fan of the show “Quantum Leap,” then prepare for a giant wave of nostalgia.

Rockstar Energy premiered a new video Tuesday, called “Quantum Drift,” which features Red Bull GRC driver Tanner Foust, a magic yellow steering wheel and a whole lot of tire smoke.

The video starts with Foust in his Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross GRC Beetle during a post-race interview, but once he reaches for the yellow steering wheel he goes back in time to his childhood. The rest of the video involves Foust driving everything from his GRC Beetle, to his VW Passat drift car and even a Polaris RZR.

Admittedly, “Quantum Drift” is different from “Quantum Leap” in that Foust didn’t switch identities each time he found himself in a new vehicle. But that’s because he’s a jack-of-all-trades.

The 43-year-old has competed in almost every discipline, including stage rally, drifting and single-seaters.
