Perkele! It’s an exclamation we hear from time to time in the rally world. You don’t have to be Finnish to understand. We came across this short clip of Ukrainian rallyista Alexander Saliuk’s big air at WRC Turkey recently and thought we’d share it with you. You know, just in case you hadn’t seen it yet.
A YouTube commenter was kind enough to share a rough translation of the in-car..
-Trampolin jump right 8 – 70… OH, F*CK!
-(Still going) Looks like we lost something…
-Don’t care, we’ll reach the finish
We’ve got a proper driver interview on-deck for Tuesday of this week. Until then, press on regardless.
