This footage of the 2012 Australian Quit Forest Rally follows Steven Shepheard and John McCarthy in their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X and I can’t decide if I want to be in the car or in the helicopter more.

The raw sound of the helicopter’s blades coupled with the distant scream of the Evo below, with the exhaust popping at insane speeds makes watching a rally that much more visceral.

Only helicopter footage truly captures just how fast these cars fly through the dirt, and it makes it seem so much more realistic, and yet so much like watching a movie or playing a video game.

Awesome.
