Combining moving visuals – slow-motion camera shots, impossible angles, beautiful scenery and, of course, ridiculously fast rally cars – with compelling storylines is a sure-fire way to win some friends in the Autoblog offices. And that's exactly what the video you'll see below has to offer.

As a teaser for a full-length documentary called Easier Said Than Done that's slated to be released on September 28th (internet release coming on October 1st), this video succeeds in whetting our appetites for the rest of the show – promising footage shot in eight countries over a period of 18 months – while leaving enough to the imagination that our ridiculously short attention spans aren't left too far behind.

Check out the video below, then set a reminder in your calendar for the end of September to watch the rest.

      Finally a formal film on this extreme sport, now I won't have to watch a million 10-minute videos of some guy filming Rally cars in one particular corner.

      Sweeeeeet. Always enjoy seeing the Subies represent. I'll definitely check out the film when it's available.

      Its some of the best car racing ever seen... WRC used be shown on The Speed Channel, those were the good days, then they started to reduce the show, making it smaller and smaller, till they decided to pull it, So much for that channel, Ive not been back to Speed since they pulled it, Shame on them. Go Petter, well actually I like many of the guys, Loeb is terrific.

        They showed review shows on Velocity for a while, but they showed them weeks after the event in question, so even an avid rally nut like me couldn't be bothered to watch them. Rally's possibly the most exciting form of motorsport, but they're having real trouble packaging it for TV. Personally, I used to love watching "boring" old coverage in Finland and the UK.

      I am such a fan of this sport. It's everything that motorsports should be: - Real (highly modified) street cars - Bonkers, physics defying, stunts - Drivers will balls of steel - Actual danger and massive roll cages

      There should be a movie on the man (yes singular) and all he went through to make this documentary. Been following this almost since it was first announced on the Internet, and have waited a long time. Hopefully this video will do what Subaru rally team USA and Rally America have been trying to do for almost a decade- bring a world respected rally series and drivers to the US to race, and fans to watch.

      To people complaining about non-WRC content: 1) you're wrong. 2) you're missing the point of the documentary. WRC is nowhere near as difficult for the teams and drivers because they have millions of dollars and tons of support. WRC will be featured in the documentary for the right reasons but when the film maker talks about how hard it is for these drivers and teams the focus on more amateur series makes sense. These are the guys who don't get paid millions of dollars - they're the guys building their own car in their garage and then driving it to and on the rally. If it gets rolled and crushed that's it. They don't have teams to rebuild it in a few hours.

        Good thing Ford sells a car that easily turns into rally car....... With a $250,000 investment. Glad to see a lot of Subaru's and Evo's.... Real working mens cars who do exactly what you describe. Build them in their private garage and hope they don't wreck it. Thankfully a few cars are available for under $40K that are purpose built for this sort of thing. Evo IX's are still dominating AutoX for minimally the 3rd year in a row. Unlimited class just can't beat that car.

      Looks cool. Am I mistaken, or were all the interviews, those of Americans only? The one place, WRC isn't. Not saying that's a bad things, but it be interesting to hear more from people around the planet.
        Great Scott Mtrsprts
        @RSS007
        Yes, you're mistaken. :) The first person in the trailer is Petter Solberg, Norwegian and former WRC Champion. There is also footage in the video from Rally Sweden, Rally Mexico, and Rally Jamaica. And just because he interviewed some of us Americans doesn't mean we also don't have international experience - in fact everyone interviewed in the trailer has rallied abroad.

      I have a lot of respect for rally driver. Yes other forms of motorsport do have their difficulties too, but Nascar has too much of going in the same direction with little movement, F1 just has far too many aids. WRC is just raw driving. Not to mention the navigator itself is a skill, being able to read the notes at the right time before reaching a corner, and to be able to take those instructions that fast as a driver when travelling at such speeds on rough terrain is it self impressive!
