Lambo driver is Lambo. (Skip to 0:46 for the main event, but the build-up and anticipation to what you know is going to happen is worth it.)

the stuff I like is the 80's ralley stuff, Rohrl's footwork is amazing

the courses narrow, hilly, varying surfaces: snow/dirt/asphalt, desert, mountains, etc.

the cars, 2000 lb, 500-700 HP, awd

 

many F1 drivers, Schumi, Kimi, Senna, Lauda, etc., say the best drivers are ralley drivers

I love F1, been to >30 races, but the ralley stuff is more like 'real driving'

No doubt Rohrl is an amazing driver, but you will see the same thing if you look at the footwork of good karting and race drivers, all the way up to F1. Left-foot braking is used to adjust the weight distribution of the car over its 4 tires. But there's no more heel-toe these days at the top level, because all the gearboxes are computer-controlled.

Free from iTunes, a great documentary on Audi's efforts in the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans:

http://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/truth-in-24-ii-every-second/id527826964

The first Truth in 24 is also a very good documentary on their 2006 campaign:

http://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/truth-in-24/id307316228

Both are done by the NFL Films people, so they are put together very well.
