    Default Italian rally drivers...

    Nutbags they are!

    This is Gigi Galli, some montagey clip that shows a few "moments". I'm particularly fond of the hairpin turn.

    You would have to be confident in his abilities to park your car on that hairpin...

    Hmmm. Not quite sure.

    But I think a few of the spectators may have come uncomfortably close to experiencing something similar.

    Tazio Nuvolari was the pioneer of the 4 wheeled drift, every derivative style has come from this technique which he perfected in the mid-engined auto unions of the 30's.

    The first clip of Gigi in the air reminds of Makinen in the Tour de Course some years ago in his Lancer, getting it sideways in the air but somehow controlling the landing.

    The sideways slide at the end is insane!

    Gigi of course fits the typical hot blooded Italian stereotype...he slapped his co-driver earlier this year as they crossed the finish line when the co-driver made a mistake. Also during last weekends Argentina Rally, he spun the car and after it coming to rest said "che cazzo successo??"...i.e., "what the f*** is wrong?"
