Some cars have a great sound track don't they......... but for sheer lunacy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NEskpWsMkI takes some beating, especially as it was standard car off the production line having only uprated suspension and slick tyres according to the cover of the promo VHS Rover issued.

Pond was a bit special, but the word was that the rover was a tad les std than suggested, it alledgedly ran more power, an LSD and a few other tweaks. Thats taking nothing away from Pond in my book as all manufacturers did/do it and the lap was amazing.

Blimey. In the main screen it "seems" innocuous but look at the small in screen where he is wrestling the wheel all over the place.

And the co-driver doesn't flinch- cannon fodder :?

Pond and Higgins both very impressive.

Slightly different but what about this one - Ari showing how it's done. Looks like a total dog with a flat, and lethal once it falls apart - not that it seems to slow him down much!

The co driver is the editor of Road and Track magazine the sort of US equivalent of Autosport. Personally i dont think he had any clue how close they got to being scraped off a stone wall hence being calm. Ignorance is bliss as the say lol
