This is some of the best racing commentary I've ever heard, and it's from a driver in the middle of a race, sliding all over the track, and fighting for the lead.

It's all part of the madness that was British rallycross in the 1980s, specifically the 1987 Brands Hatch Shell Oils Rallycross.

The driver, John Welch, is in a 4WD, 460+ horsepower Ford Escort, and he's swapping first place back and forth with another Escort and a Group B defector Audi Quattro.
