Once upon a time, before Top Gear nicked the segment format, You Bet! pitted a lycra clad Rob Warner against rally driver Malcolm Wilson. Much as we’d like to see an update using a UCI Downhill World Cup track, those rally drivers do tend to skid a bit, don’t they? And just imagine the “What tyres?” threads. So instead, time travel back with us to circa 1996/97. Skip to 4:29 to get past all the studio waffling, and 6:12 for Rob’s run.
Can’t see the video? Here’s a link
We don’t want to spoil the ending, but find it hilarious that Rob’s wikpedia page notes “he did get to meet Jet from Gladiators”.
