What’s it like co-driving for two-time World Rally champion Marcus Grönholm in a Volkswagen Polo R WRC? Terrifying.
Well, I assume it is, but I never got so far as actually co-driving for the legendary Finn, because my stint alongside him in a World Rally Car didn’t exactly go to plan.
No, we didn’t crash – okay, there was one small spin – but I was just absolutely rubbish. Even on a stage he didn’t know off by heart at the recent RallyLegend event in San Marino, my guidance was pointless. He was better off driving by sight, so he did.
