While there's no argument he's a very good driver, did you notice how well set up the car was? Super stiff suspension and the use of a hydraulic hand brake makes just about any car rotate nicely.

There's a US rally driver that has really impressed me with his two wheel drive skills (although he was really good with a four wheel drive as well). His name is Doug Sheperd. He's semi retired now but was a national champion for years in front wheel drive cars. He's been driving a very wicked Dodge Neon SRT (factory sponsored car) over the last 10 years or so. He's a Dodge chassis design engineer and was John Buffum's co-driver when Buffum won about a half dozen or so of his national championships. Doug's driving/ handling skills are amazing as well. For those of you in Michigan, you can usually find him at Houghton in the fall.

Incredible driving skills... I was sitting in my seat back when the video started... By the end of the video I was inches away from the screen, lol.
