If you’re not at all familiar with the world of rallying, then you need to stop what you’re doing (after watching the above video, of course) and seriously educate yourself with some important YouTube browsing. Basically, rallying is a type of motorsport involving souped-up, street-legal cars that compete in various timed stages on closed-off road courses. In other words, it’s like a lengthy, epic movie car chase scene, but in real life.
As if that didn’t sound awesome enough, the guys over at the Two Dudes One Miata YouTube channel made rallying look like just about the most fun activity in the universe with this footage from the Lake Mountain 2019 Rally in Victoria, Australia. I mean, with the F-bombs dropping left and right and the Miata making hairpin turns at ridiculous speeds, this scene was basically a mix between a high-stakes sporting event and a buddy comedy.
Now, before the two Aussie teammates begin the stage, they know that they have some serious ground to make up if they hope to catch the Evo in front of them. Less than a minute into the run, things almost go completely south when the guy driving the Miata is convinced that he can’t go any faster, despite his navigator urging him to push it. His partner not-so-calmly assures the driver that he’s sorely mistaken with the classic line, “You’ve got another gear, you motherfucker! Two more gears. Fuck!”
Eventually, the “Two Dudes” end up surpassing the Evo due to quick-thinking on the part of the guy giving the coordinates (though he does mess up once or twice) and some fantastic driving. If that didn’t get your adrenaline pumping, or at least make you laugh a few times, then you probably need to get your pulse checked.
