Let me set the scene: France, Rallye de Serrians, a Renault... The driver takes to the course...he bounces off the rev limiter, the navigator honks his ludicrous horn...more rev limiter abuse then, disaster. The car is dead by the side of the road.
What happens next is the stuff of legend, check it out. After the jump, pictures and the explanation.
A mere snapped throttle cable was not going to hold this road warrior back... I mean, sitting on top of the engine operating the throttle while your navigator drives does not make perfect sense to you?
