That's true racing spirit - nuts but that's living on the edge.

The crash into the river reminds me of the Dilbert Dunker !!

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Wow, that was some seriously crazy driving and near misses. I love the crash where the tree branch blasts through the windscreen narrowly missing the driver and navigator.

Enjoy the journey so much you don't care how long it takes to get there.

360 Modena, thanks for video, well made. But there will never be again a Group B crowd, that was something out of this world nuts.
Here is mastery level driving from Robert Kubica in recently finished Rallye Monte Carlo. A shame his right arm is handicapped. I always believed he'd be F1 champion if it weren't for that tragic accident a few years ago.

Holy cow, that reminds me of the way Franz Klammer used to go downhill - just the other side of controllable!!

The CV-780 in Alicante Region is a great road, however, after that video it got a whole lot better, thanks for posting Steve_Cats that 360C driver went for it, didn't know Doug had been out here!!! 👍👍👍

I agree on the mountain roads of Alicante. They are superb for small sports cars and for motorcycles. Dani Solá and other rally drivers frequently practice and race in these mountains. Unfortunately, lots of the cyclist teams of the world also practice in these mountains. This calls for extreme attention when flooring it on these roads. My fishing hut is in Villajoyosa, right by where this clip is taken. I've been here on and off for 45 years. I keep a Ducati and an MV Agusta here to enjoy these roads. Although an even higher joy, is riding my KTM on the vast system of dirt roads that cover these mountains.

Salve,
Capo
