I Drove a Rally Car in Wales (and It Was Just as Awesome as It Sounds)

I genuinely believe driving on loose surfaces is the most fun you can have driving a car. Ironically I've found it's the kind of driving that feels most like playing a videogame.

@Jimmy B thanks for this, you have made me realise the the rally school isn't really that far away from where I live so I'm saving up to have a go myself. 👍

Everything else about the roads chosen for rally racing is just as fun, I think. I don't have to break traction (or the speed limit) to enjoy a narrow winding road through the woods, over ridges and through valleys; old roads not yet rebuilt (or expensive/impossible to rebuild) to modern DOT standards. They're beautiful, scenic, dynamic rollercoasters.
