Video: Rob Warner vs. Rally Car

November 18, 2015

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.

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”.

As it happens, one of the perks on our campaign for Mountain Biking: The Untold British Story is for you to to ride with Rob Warner! Lycra optional.
