VIDEO: Jon Olsson’s uphill rally

Jon Olsson usually races down ski hills, but in his latest video he is challenged to drift his 600hp, 1000kg supercar ‘The Rebellion R2K’ up a snowy slope in Storlien, Sweden.

“This crazy idea turned out to be one of the most exciting mornings that I have ever had. Pushing full gas while sliding sideways on the top of an empty mountain while the sun is just dipping over the horizon is just hard to beat!” exclaims Olsson.

Chalk it all up to high altitude training for Olsson’s entry in the upcoming Gumball 3000 “Miami 2 Ibiza” rally in June 2014.
