Rain on the day of a rally can make things interesting. The Sand Road West stage of the NASA Rally Sport Central Upper Peninsula Rally Cup was a wet one, to be sure. The 8.5 -mile stage starts out twisty and then opens up a bit before tightening up again for a technical finish.
In this clip, driver Ryan George and his wife and navigator Heather Stieber struggled for traction during the entire stage in their E36 M3. It’s a really fine bit of driving, but a little more than 7 miles into the stage they crested a hill that led to a right turn, which resulted in understeer and contact with some small trees and a rock. They were pulled out and continued on their way, but the incident dropped them to the bottom of that stage’s scores. Sure was fun to watch.
