Professional driver on a closed course? Nope, not this time.

Proving that you don't have to be Ken Block, and that you don't need a specially prepared rally car from Ford (though it certainly doesn't hurt...) or a mega budget to make a cool video are Etienne Guerra and Leaking Duck Productions. The driver and his crew used a 1986 Ford Fiesta Ghia that they apparently found in a shed and coaxed into starting, plus some Monster-inspired paint and a motocross riding suit to replicate the famous video series.

And you know what? From the looks of it, they had a blast.

Sure, there's a lot less tire smoke and a lot less fancy video editing, but that doesn't mean this no-budget Gymkhana session is any less entertaining. Check it out after the break, but beware: we're not suggesting you run out and try to make your own. Have fun out there, but be safe.

      I was standing in the cold during a stage at the Hundred Acre Wood. A cop was helping at the junction so he broke out the radar gun and would read off the corner speeds on the PA. The open class cars were in the 90-95mph range. Then at the back of the field was an Escort GT doing 47. Some dope joked about how slow it was. Then somebody else pointed out, who was having more fun, the guy in the Escort, or us bozos freezing our butts off watching. Point taken.

      Driving fast in a slower car really makes you appreciate every bit of horsepower and amount of traction you got.

      Definitely looks like a lot of fun, and a surprisingly solid car. I saw a lot of 3-wheeling! Gotta love the slow motion fluorescent lights and exhaust poop. Also dubstep is part of what's wrong with the world today...

        Hahaha. If Dubstep is your worry, you've no idea about the world's troubles at all. Enjoy your wealth while you got it, hater.

      Very cool. Nice job fellas. As much as I love DSLR's for film making - they're painful for anything off-tripod.
