Even Mere Rally Testing Is Better Than Anything Else

Usually motorsport tests are boring enough to make your face bleed from every orifice. A car goes out, it does some boring laps, a car comes back in. Then an engineer sits with a laptop for several hours. But in rally? Hell nah. Jumps, my friend. Jumps.

French rallyist Sébastien Ogier was just doing some testing for Rally Finland back in July, and he managed to get insane amounts of airtime. There’s a reason why the Rally Finland is definitively our favorite gravel rally. It’s all huge jumps and wild slides and insanity.


You know what? Just watch the dang video. You’re welcome.
