Audi S1 Rally Car Conquers a Ski Slalom Course
Mattias Ekström is certainly no stranger to pushing the limits of his awesome Audi S1 rally car, having won the World Rallycross Championship in 2014. But one’s view of the world can change quickly and when Ekström takes the passenger seat and allows professional alpine skier Felix Neureuther take the wheel of his 600 horsepower rally racer, one can almost hear G.O.B. Bluth uttering “I’ve made a huge mistake.”
I’m not sure if it helps the situation that Neureuther takes the S1 to his home territory, an alpine slalom course, but after missing a gate, the pair make it successfully to the bottom and live to tell the tale.
