Am i the only one finds these a bit long in the tooth now?? All credit to him, they still look amazing but 8 mins is a tough watch now i think.
I could watch them all day to be honest, but I found this one a bit less exciting than previous ones. Nothing really new.

They have been pretty much the same recently with the same signature moves but then how would you improve them? I'd love to see a James Bond barrel roll or a loop thrown in just to mix it up a bit.

2 minutes was enough for me. I would rather watch ari vatinen going up pikes peak in the 405 t16 or Walter rohl dancing a s1 quattro through real stages flat out. No doubt your man can drive but he wasn't much use against loeb (y)
Its when you see the amount of tyre marks on the road you realise how many times he's attempted the manoeuvre before the "take" that we see.

More of the same? Yes.

Could other people in the world do the same? If course.

Does it matter? No :grinning:

Still good entertainment. On number nine now and still popular, so obviously doing something right, lol.

The production value makes them for me, and the cars. Though the Hoonigan car will be hard to beat. :cool:

Still like the first couple he did the best, great skill and still entertaining, I wonder how many front bumpers he goes through filming that :rolleyes:.

As for the loeb video, great driving, seems to be advertising fibre internet, might just be me but if you had to wait for loeb to do all that before getting your video to stream I'd be getting pissed off with my internet speed :p

He wont ever top Gymkhana 1 for me. Not in a Ford anyway.... :p
It was less flashy lights and helicopters & more about the car and the driving & the sound. Whats not to love about the flat 4 burble of an '06 Impreza

Plus, chances are, any of us could almost drive like that, in a car like that, in an area like that, with a budget like that!
