A first-person rally video is just as intense as it sounds
This is Simon Pagenaud, and while he may best be known as an IndyCar and sports car driver, he's quite comfortable behind the wheel of a rally car, as he proves in this video. What makes this vid special, though, is the first-person view, thanks to the camera Pagenaud fitted to his visor.
The result is, in a word, awesome. If you thought rallying looked fast in flyby shots, it's got nothing on how it looks from the driver's perspective. Scenery passes at an absurd rate as Pagenaud pushes the Peugeot 207 rally car along the tarmac road. And unlike a lot of rally videos, we're sure you'll be happy to know that there's no soundtrack here - just engine noise.
