This guy beat out all of the more modern R5 rally cars with his older Group N Mitsubishi Evo. And the way he drives is beyond gnarly.

This is Alexey Lukyanuk at the wheel. You may have heard his name come up in connection to his recent crash on shakedown for this weekend’s Rally Finland. He pretty much ate the entire rear end of that Ford Fiesta.

But in this Evo he is beyond comfortable, posting the fastest time overall on this stage (at last year’s Rally Estonia) and flashing the peace sign to the spectators.

Watch how he uses dirt bumps and bushes to guide the car into the corner like snowbanks. Unreal.
