Click above to watch video after the jump

Football fans know that offense sells tickets, but defense wins games. Rallying is not so different. Drivers get all the glory, but they'd all be stranded upside-down in a tree somewhere without their co-pilots. The navigators ride shotgun and give the driver a turn-by-turn play-by-play of what's coming up around the next bend.

We've seen all kinds of pairings of driver and co-driver, but this one has to take the cake. Behind the wheel of a vintage Ford Escort MkII (pictured above), Irish rally driver Jimmy Deane gets the lay of the land from Barry Meade, whose comically enthusiastic directions make us wish our sat-nav had his voice as an option. If you don't mind a bit of swearing, follow the jump and clip the apex to watch the video to see what we mean.
