VIDEO: Ride in a WRC i20

Hyundai rally driver Thierry Neuville got more than he bargained for when he took motoring journalist Rosanna Tennant from Pole Position magazine out in a Hyundai i20.

The ride starts with a vicious pull-away by Neuville before the car  enters a lazy left-hand turn.

PUTS YOU ON A HIGH

The excitement and hilarious facial expressions from Tennant will have you laughing uncontrollably.

The funniest are at 52 seconds and 1min08 into the video. They will keep you hitting the rewind button.

The WRC Hyundai i20 is powered by an in-line four-cylinder 1.6 turbo engine via a six-speed sequential gearbox and all-wheel drive with 200kW available at 6000rpm and 400Nm at 5000rpm.

Neuville is in sixth (21 points) in the WRC Drivers' (April 30 2014) standings and Hyundai is fourth in the Constructors' championship.

Watch her reactions (scroll down)...


...and then watch the whole video.
