    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.)

     God that footage is amazing. The Senna doc is a little long, but quite good.

    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.

    Favorite so far. He must have had help in blocking off traffic- ran ?? number of redlights.

    supposedly a real 'rogue' run in a MB sedan, over-dubbed to sound like a Ferrari
