Agreed. Its all relative, he has learnt to be good on pre-recorded stuff. Plenty of existing black lines on some of those shots, presumably from practice runs, or multiple runs cut to make one vid.

Speaking from experience (!!) of competing in timed events and autotests etc I can tell you that its two completely different skillsets. Yes its in a car but rallying in particular is so much different to say circuit racing.

I dont recall ever hearing him say he was going to dominate WRC, just that he was looking forward to it and he has done quite well in national rallying and rally x plus of course gymkana.

As another example, Loeb tested for Torro Rosso a number of years back, he was pretty much the slowest there yet has won the WRC for 7+ years in a row and has also had success in sports cars. His "failure" in that F1 test doesnt make him rubbish.

Still 4 wheels yes but a lot else is different.

There is no question or doubt that I am an absolute god at mountain biking but im pretty sure that if I went anywhere near a velodrome I would be in hospital having a splinter removed in 4 seconds...

I do agree that he's not top WRC and that he probably does take a few cuts to do one shot in his vids. but he is still an absolute legend! even just for making DC Shoes  8) He is creative behind the wheel and makes everythin look so damn easy!!!  Big Grin
