We suppose "Go, granny, go!" is appropriate at times like these. In this video, a 91-year-old grandmother gets behind the wheel of an old Subaru for some RallyCross seat time. What's not awesome about that?

For her run, she has a navigator instructing her on the turns like any rally event. For most of her time behind the wheel, she looks terrified, but as you can see from the screengrab, she starts to have fun with it.

Throughout the video you hear several clunks which sound like she is running over something (or someone), and lest you might chalk it up as just the sounds of the course, you overhear the navigator telling our intrepid elderly driver "you went off course, which is worse than hitting a cone."

Click below to watch the video and see how well she does rallying an old Subie.

      It is good to see older people live instead of throwing in the towel. Way to go grandma.

      91, and still hooning around in the dirt like a 19 year old. You go granny!

      So (at least in this vid) the rally car is an automatic (or dual clutch automated manual) as I don't see her shifting.
