Banks Sidewinde--GMC Sierra - The World's First Roadracing Diesel Truck

Racing into the Future

The Banks Race Shop crew has been going full-throttle getting the D-Max Type-R ready to take on not only the competition but also the preconceived notions of what a diesel can and can't do. Check out the video to see the action in the Race Shop, skidpad testing at California Speedway, and then on the track at Thunderhill Raceway.

Putting it to the test

Burning the midnight diesel fuel, the Banks Sidewinder D-Max Type-R road race truck stretches its legs a bit in full race trim on the Banks chassis dynamometer. The nightime dyno runs allowed the race crew to make a few tuning adjustments before heading out for more testing the following day at Thunderhill Raceway, about an hour north of Sacramento.
