Italian Top Gear Races A Rally Car Against A Downhill Skier

The crosstown tracktards at Axis of Oversteer found this video of Top Gear Italia magazine racing a Peugeot 207 S2000 rally car against a downhill skier. Who's fastest on the snow?

Thanks to some monster studs on those skinny tires (they need to be skinny to dig into the snow, not float over it) the 207 makes it past the skier, proving that if you have to flee from an avalanche, you're better off in a rally car, or something.

Awesome video! I would love to try this (maybe). Real guts for the skier and the driver.
