WRC is not solely about epic crashes. Sometimes, in spite of health and safety standards inspired by Mogadishu city life, the cars do manage to stay on the road.

When they do, they still look frightening. This is no doubt a function of us being used to road races held behind seven layers of barbed wire and security and the pure spectacle of seeing high-tech race cars decked out to resemble European family hatchback go full throttle on dirt roads, surrounded by nothing by wildflowers and humans.

The above video was created by the Polish videographer Maciej Puczyński and is set to a wicked electronic remix of a Bloc Party song. Enjoy!

WRC is truly incredible.

Granted, the machines are half-to-3/4-million dollar cars, but still, the doors open/close many have power windows, the indicators work, etcetera.

A car you could truly drive, daily, on the street, if you were hard-core enough.

I'd like to give it a shot. I can see stoplight drags in the rain being a thrill, right at the rev-limit as the light is changing.
