Everyone talks about the Finns having crazy rally driving skills, but don't count out their linguistic siblings, the Estonians, just yet. Because they can make a BMW literally fly, and then just keep. on. going. Like it's nothing at all.
And I really am serious about the car's stubborn tenacity, and that of its race team. From the in-car view, you can see them just continue with the race, the co-driver keeping up with the notes, even though they just made a jump in an old BMW that would make Evel Knievel sit up.
Yeah, even though it only takes a few seconds, it feels like they have all the hangtime in the world to say "OH SHIIIIIIIIIIIIII–."
Except, you know, in Estonian. (Estonian commenters feel free to chime in with a helpful translation.)
Sadly, it looks like the eager little BMW That Could just couldn't for much longer, as the team of Priit Koik and Alari-Uku Heldna were forced to retire from the Viru Rally soon after.
Even still, now you can say for certain that a BMW can take bigger jumps, and last longer, than a Ford SVT Raptor.
