These guys are standing right in the middle of the road, only just leaping out of the way as a rally Ford Fiesta screams past at pants-shitting speeds.

This is not footage from Group B in the '80s. This is the WRC Rally Acropolis over the weekend.

I happen to be writing this in a race shop that builds rally cars right at this moment, and there's a European rally veteran standing right next to me. He looks over my shoulder, watches the video, slaps me on the shoulder and says,

"Yes, but that is Europe. It is different. If you lived there, you would be doing it, too."

I'm don't think so. You couldn't pay me to stand where these guys are. I'm stupid, but I'm not this stupid.
