Back before 4 wheel drive monsters took over the rally scene, the stages were populated by rear wheel drive cars with the exception of Minis of course. Those cars were a thing of beauty to see when driven by a master. Swinging a rear driver down a stage road is almost more of an art than anything.
Ramana Lagemann is an artist of the first order, making a BMW M3 dance on gravel like nobody’s business. This onboard footage was shot last weekend at the Oregon Trail Rally, where Lagemann attached stage 15 as friend of The Garage Nathalie Richard calls notes from the shotgun seat. Around 3:25 the road opens up and the M3 really starts to howl.
