Watching rally cars is fun. Watching rally cars while crouched inches away from them as they drive at highway speeds, with your back pressed against a no-escape rock wall? Less fun.

This dude with a rather cavalier attitude about self-preservation was out on Special Stage 3 of the Monte Carlo Rally the other day. I spotted him on Kris Meeke’s onboard footage, within arm’s length of the driver as he was accelerating from a decent 65 mph.

The sad thing is that rallies (particularly those in Europe) can see a lot worse.
