I came across this video today. I remember seeing it years ago on a big screen and was amazing. Ari Vatanen is now a European Minister of Parliament, but back in the day he was (and still is) one of top World Rally drivers. World Champion in 1981 and Paris-Dakar winner, no less than four times!
Ari also took part in the Pike’s Peaks climb and this video called ‘Climb Dance’ focuses on his amazing drive up the climb in a Peugeot 405 T16. A truly amazing video showing Ari’s skill at balancing the car almost on the edge. My favourite part has to be when he ends up driving with one hand, while shielding the sun with his other hand.
