Tomorrow night, Top Gear USA will unleash a rally extravaganza episode called Off Road Racing. The cast will visit the famed DirtFish Rally School in Snoqualmie, Washington where Adam Ferrara and Rutledge Wood get lessons on how to tear through the forest like professionals. In addition to getting help from X Games legend and GRC competitor, Bucky Lasek; their goal is to hold their own against Tanner Foust in a race. What could possibly go wrong?
Tanner’s favorite motor sport is the high speed, minimal-traction action sport of Rally racing… but how hard is it really? Rut and Adam enroll themselves in a rally school and with the help of professional driver Bucky Lasek, prepare themselves for a race against Tanner. Meanwhile, Tanner takes part in a genuine rally race in a stock Mini Paceman S, before they all meet up for the final race, which doesn’t go the way Tanner is expecting. – BBC Worldwide
It’s been said time and again (mostly by me) that these guys are some of the luckiest ducks on television. They get flown to different parts of the country (and world), to have adventures in cars – and get paid for it! Check out this behind-the-scenes video from History Channel of Adam and Rutledge deciding who gets to drive the rally car first, using that tried and true method of making mankind’s great decisions – Rock, Paper, Scissors. Hey, at least it’s not Eenie Meenie Miney Moe.
The episode airs at 9:00pm EST on Tuesday September 17, 2013 and re-airs at 1:00am EST. Even if you miss it, the episode will be available for viewing on History Channel’s website; and for purchase on iTunes and Amazon. We’ll be live-tweeting the episode so follow us for our take on the motoring madness that is Top Gear USA. Warning: there will be snarkiness and cheeky jokes aplenty.
