First a drag race, then a game of football played with rally cars, and finally a relay race featuring remote-controlled ad real cars. This is how the young Finnish drivers Kalle Rovanper盲 and Juuso Nordgren, along with their co-drivers, let off steam in their rally cars at the end of the rally season. Take a look at the videos to see how well they did.

DRAG RACE

Driving in a straight line looks easy, doesn鈥檛 it? All you need is to floor the accelerator and grip the steering wheel. Are you sure about that? It鈥檚 not that easy, of course. And the U-turn in the middle of the race makes it even harder.

FOOTBALL

As for the second challenge, you can see at first glance that it鈥檚 going to be tricky. And a little crazy 鈥 playing football in a car? For most drivers, it鈥檚 impossible, but rally drivers are experienced hands at working precisely with the handbrake and sliding, so much so that they can use their car as a football boot.

RC MODEL

To let the co-drivers have a bit of fun as well, we put them in control in the last challenge. It鈥檚 just the cars were a bit smaller. Their task was to take RC models of the 艩KODA FABIA R5 (you鈥檝e met them before in one of our videos where they raced inside the company鈥檚 factory) through a coned track as fast as possible. Then when they crossed the finish line, the driver in the real FABIA R5 took over the baton.
