I just saw that clip on Eurosport and sure enough was able to find it on youtube. Amazing jump. Short of a backflip.

I like the in-car, when the car's nose starts to come up, the driver starts closing his eyes while there is no reaction at all from the navigator.

Nice to see Hirvonen giving Leob a run for his money. With his win in Finland, he takes a three point lead in the championship.

Man that landing has to hurt. How much travel do those things have like 8 inches. I know travel doesnt mean jack unless its controlled but come on you know thats gotta kill your spine.

At £2500 pounds per shock you would think they didn't even know they had left the ground

Amazing what they get away with on travel and are still able to walk after the race...We have 25ish in the truck and sometimes I still feel those jumps.

I think they should have a jump contest next year at the X-games. Two teams. Rally vs TT.
