Great production and emotional ride!
7 February 2014 | by adam_cool-918-532224See all my reviews

Wow, wasn't expecting this 2 part series to be so griping. Idris does a spectacular job narrating the entire show, and his passion with cars and racing really gets expressed on screen.

Part 1 was great, but part 2 was even better. His relationship with Rally Champion Ari Vatanen and his son is fantastic, and what a character Ari is. We get to see Idris build up his rally skills over the entire episode, from racing a first gen mini cooper, to drifting, to motocross trials.

Music throughout was very good, and the shots of Idris rallying was superb. Don't hesitate to take a look at this 2 part series if you are a fan of rallying.
