    Weeks? I bet this guy doesn't sleep, but just practices all the time...

    The choice of a car was quite surprising for me. I remember he was using Impreza's for a while, but now nothing from Japan or Germany, but American? :rolleyes:

    Shame he can't make it work in WRC though!

    Must practise a lot though to get these so spot on, you can see the marks from previous runs. Brilliant for his sponsors too!

    So he can burn rubber.
    But I bet he can't put a fruit pastel in his mouth without chewing it!

    I must be too old for something like this to impress me.
    I KNOW its clever and I know I couldnt do it to save my life and I know he is obvoiusly a far better driver than I will ever be.

    But so what?

    Things that impress me are doctors who save peoples lives. Engineers who design amazing machines. People who work selflessly and without thanks to help those in dire need. People who dedicate their lives to give the disabled a happy and fulfilling lives.
    OK, I am being very boring and not entering into the spirit of the occassion.
    If he was in a proper rally and doing all those things, then, yes, I would be totally in awe of the guy and his amazing machine. I would be the first to rain praise down.
    But to do that with no real purpose other than to impress, then that doesnt tick my box.
    Sorry for being a miserable grumpy old fa*t.

    Well very much like art, music, etc., its purpose is to be beautiful to watch in itself. It's not an attempt to go as quickly as possible at all, so while the skills are transferrable, it certainly wouldn't win a rally.

    Do you hold the same opinion of the Red Arrows? I mean .. they're kinda useless in many ways!

    Each to their own I guess ;)
