    For those of you whom haven't seen it this is a vid/short film of Ari Vatanen (arguably one of the best rally drivers of all time) driving a Peugeot 405 T16 up Pikes Peak. According to that site it's from around 1988 so there weren't a bunch of electronic gizmos and sequential transmissions to help the driver. Just man & machine :D Granted, it doesn't quite compare to F1 and LeMans racing of the 50's, 60's, & 70's or Group B rallying of the 70's & 80's, but it's what I would consider the end of an era (well, in my personal opinion). Erm, well whatever you wanna call it it's some incredible driving either way. Enjoy :)

    Incredible. I was hoping for a few pedal shots as well.
