Looks like an amazing event... isn't that one small unpaved road snaking on that steep hillside scary as hell to ride down on?

Looks like it could be fun - but the video is blocked in the US due to copyright

Just hum Stairway To Heaven to yourself while watching the copyright notice.

Then you'll get half the experience anyway.

I think this answers the question of how a car tire sidewall responds to side loading... I suppose the guys using car tires on their wings were right ALL this time

I swear to God I fell asleep ... twice... watching that, but yeah, I guess your point is in it.

Short version - unless I missed some amazing thing at the end, just watch about 30 seconds of any part of the video as a BMW or two drive on two wheels over and over again.

Yeah I agree watching the entire video isn't that exciting... but it is still pretty badass to see that... it looks unreal. The turning ability of those cars while on two wheels is unrivaled... I gotta figure out how to fit one on my dirbike now

Last weekend was 2012 la Bañeza GG.PP. A little I.O.M., as Continental Circus should be one day, grand prix made with classic 2t, 4t and 125 gp in a town in the north of Spain. I have not found 2012 videos or better and impressive videos. Don´t know why...
