Rip roaring a rally car on the snow covered Alps

Posted By on March 15, 2012

The Top Gear crew filmed a Peugeot 207 S 2000 racing down the snow covered twists anddashshifting turns near the ski resort Ravascletto (Monte Zoncolan in the Alps). The video below displays some pretty impressive driving with drifting and high speeds by the 6 time Italian rally champion Paolo Andreucci. Beautiful scenery that … debatably … might be better left to skiers with poles rather than “rip roaring” Peugeot?   this from an automotive enthusiast. On a side note, how effective is relocating the short throw gearshift to a higher position?
