Rhys Millen's Climb Attack Brazil – Click above for to watch video after the jump

Rhys Millen recently teased a video of him sliding up the slopes of Serra do Rio do Rastro, and now the tease has been expanded upon in tropical glory. It's a three-minutes-and-change blast of sideways slithering and vulcanized clouds for which few words are needed. In fact, the only words in the entire four-minute vid are: "The course is clear." You'll find the accompanying smoke and fury after the jump.

      I've been there, it's the most amazing road I've ever been to, but it's also very scary to drive fast. The roads that lead up to there and after are better for an avarage driver like me to have fun. What Rhys Millen did is crazy impressive!

      I'm speechless after watching that... that was an incredible showing of skill, talent, and raw fearless behavior...

      Fantastic! I could watch 4 minutes of just the foot cam. Fred Astaire would be in awe.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Me too...I don't know why they don't release the full vids and then the individual shots they used as well...its just YouTube, and I bet that footwell cam vid would get a ton of views.

      the road is epic, the scenery amazing but i have two big dents ont his video..

      though produced well, it's missing Helicopter shots, even if an R/C one was used it would have given great wide shots, and RM is going too slow to be epically spectacular, with too much smoke. i for one prefer faster more flowing drifting especially when you are on a mountain road, it's not all about the rubber you burn, sometimes a drift looks neater and more well executed when smoke is not involved... but i can live with the smoke if they have used some air shots... it's red bull 1000 cans would have covered the extra costs...

        @VadimG:

        "what else is needed"?? How about speed?

        Very cool regardless... anyone know what the music is?
        • 4 Years Ago
        I guess that's why he did it again and broke the record. Maybe read before you post?

        @trustedcarsalesman:

        That wasn't time attack, so who cares.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I don't get what this has to do with efficiency. He drifted alone the road for it to look nice and presentable. It worked.

        What else is needed?
        • 4 Years Ago
        but totally inefficient. this isn't time attack. this is time wasting. grip driving is faster than drifting.
      • 4 Years Ago
      This is not a easy as it looks for those who are bashing.Get a 600hp car sideways and see what happens to you and just how fast it happens.And yes you can crash it in less than 20secs.The guy has talent so he makes it look easy,grip driving on which time attack is based is totally different from drifting.

      Somehow I enjoyed that more than Ken Block's misnomered gymkhana videos
        • 4 Years Ago
        i agree. this was simply amazing. first thing i noticed was no tire marks. this driver has some serious skill, and it shows. very fluid, very impressive, and very crazy. hes going places with his career.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Turn10 should make a course based upon that road for FM3.
      • 4 Years Ago
      "The course is green", not "the course is clear".

      • 4 Years Ago
      Wow that was pretty sick...Im a good driver but if i try something like that i would probably crash in the first 20 seconds..
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm not a good driver, but I'm not going to crash in 20second doing that.









        I'm going to crash in 5seconds. LOL
