This WRC Driver Flying 50 Metres Through The Air Is The Most Graceful Thing You'll See Today

World Rally Championship driver Mads Ostberg managed to fly 50 metres through the air at Rally Finland’s “Yellow House Jump” and it looks absolutely amazing

Remind me later

Rally Finland is known for being one of the quickest and toughest WRC events. Not only does it feature some incredibly fast and tricky sections, but there are also a lot of very big jumps.

The “Yellow House Jump” is one of those, with a fast right-hander and small straight just before approach. With these new 2017 WRC cars, they’re going ridiculously quick.

On his second pass through the Ouninpohja stage, Ostberg tackled the world-renowned Rally Finland jump with full force and he sailed 50 metres in the air – that’s over 160 feet, which is, frankly, amazing.

Sit back and watch his Ford Fiesta WRC fly as gracefully as a many, many-horsepowered swan over the jump. It doesn’t get much cooler than that, does it?
