If you want to see how tough it is to be a pro rally driver, try this ridealong with rally driver Emma Gilmour and her co-driver Claire Mole. This is a rally stage in Finland, known for it’s narrow dirt roads with unforgiving trees lining each side and huge jumps (check out at 3:37), all driven at a high rate of speed.
Any time you think your commute is bad, take a view of this!
