ok, before i post vid links...

every few months another great precision driving video is posted somewhere.  that's great and all, but what i want to know is why these guys are never willing to drive a car that most of us here would be happy to see the end of...?  :?  i've never seen a good synchro vid with porkers or lambos or ferraris... only hyundais and daihatsus and holdens.  i think i once saw one with Saabs...  :rolleyes:

Probably because their insurance company would put them over their knee and spank them the moment they suggested anything other than the cheap and nasty version. :)

That is Disneyland Paris. It is called Motours Action. I saw that show last June. It was very well done. The best stunt show I have ever seen.

The cars which look like Opel Barinas are full space frame cars with composite body shells and powered by large capacity motorcycle engines running through a forward/reverse box. This gives them a 6 speed sequential gearbox in both forward and reverse.

There are two of the red Astra's. One is setup as you would expect with the driver facing forward and one is setup in reverse so when you see the car do the jump in reverse it is only the body shell that is doing it backwards. The two cars always swap away from the publics view.

Thanks for the info!  Was still awesome just to watch on a crappy little computer screen though - would love to see it for real.

Not too many people know that the original Holden Precision Driving Team used VW Beetles and there 16 of them. All was good and Volkswagon Australia loved them until a 16 way cross over didn't go to plan one night. After that they scaled it back to 4 cars.

A link to the Moteurs Action.
