Is This The Slide Of The Year?

Screencap via Hayden Paddon

World Rally Championship driver Hayden Paddon had a hoon-day in his Hyundai i20 WRC giving rides to various VIPs after Rally Australia. My goodness, this slide is beautiful.


Look at how the full sideways length of the car fits perfectly between the barriers there. Then hit replay. Then look again.

The dusty Aussie roads add an ambiance to the hoonage that makes this a real contender for slide of the year. Rally Australia was moved just a little further into Australia’s drier summer season, so the dust was really wild this year.

Is there a more beautiful sideways slide?

Bring on the 2017 season, WRC. Bring it to us now.
