A Reminder That Today's WRC Rally Cars Are Completely Bonkers

Rules enacted last season have made the cars of the World Rally Championship delightfully extreme, wider, more powerful and more wonderful than they have been in years. Please watch as Jari-Matti Latvala absolutely hucks his Toyota Yaris sideways in a test session in Sweden as a demonstration of what I mean.


That is some quality huckage. It’s 1990s WRC huckage. It’s the good stuff, I tell you.

Here’s some more footage from that test session, just to enjoy.

It’s gonna be a good season.

That’s some serious “don’t try this shit at home, kids” stuff! Rallying is like taking every bad idea you’ve ever had while driving and turning it into a sport. And it’s glorious!
