Nice find Marcus, thank you.  A modern version of the Ari Vatanen, "Climb Dance".

Ari vatanen pikes peak

I like the gaffa tape on the dash.  Reminds me of my first car... a 1976 VW Golf with tape on the dash to hold the speaker in...

Climb Dance was much more fun to watch.  :gtg:

The fact that guy was holding his arm in the air to block the sun while he few around the corners... yes, climb dance wins.

i kinda zapped away from the first one, as mr Wedge, that Ari Vatanen vid feels like there's more Heart and Balls beeing brought into the situation.

...and no navigator...

That said, I think Marcus (Gronholm  lol ) is just as bit as good as Ari, but the technology in the cars now kinda makes it hard to judge... I mean Gaffa tape!!!!!

You're right there Steiny, Ari had (in his racing days) nowhere near the sense of mortality compared to today's drivers...  :yes:
