Whoever thought rally driving could be so funny?

Amusing weekend post.

I came across this one on the web the other day, and wondered what Uncle Gaybo and the RSA would say about it.   "Dear oh dear oh dear", probably.  "If a squirrel had run out on that road"

The only experience I had of watching a rally was at a mate's house in Galway, when we were marooned there as one was talking place around us.  Sadly, we had no option other than to drink cans of beer in the garden and watch the cars buzz by.  It was quite enjoyable, actually.

But look at this video, where the driver of a Subaru Impreza WRX (I think) has his progress repeatedly impeded by older, slower, two-wheel drive cars.  As far as I know, circuits are usually timed, so it seems odd that the cars' starting times were not spead out a bit more. 

Whatever the cause, the driver's frustration is palpable.  I particularly love the "Oh look at him slowin' down.  Fuckin' straight road!!!"

Mrs Gombeen says the soundtrack is somewhat reminiscent of our last drive to Tescos, with yours truly at the wheel. 

She's such a wag.

If it wasn't for the crash helmets and the clip board I'd never of guessed it was a rally :)
