Audi S1 E2 Rally – Through the forest with a WRC driver (video)

Submitted by on August 30, 2014

Audi S1 E2Narrow tree lined roads, a life-long rally driver and the legendary Audi S1 E2.

Armin Schwarz is more than comfortable behind the wheel of a rally car, he’s right at home. The German born ex-WRC driver spent nearly twenty years rallying competitively. He was German rally champion for two years running in 1987 and 1988, and European Rally Champion in 1996.

For every other year between 1988 and 2005 he was a part of the WRC, winning the Spanish round of the 1991 season whilst driving for Toyota. Today however, we’re going to watch him in an Audi. It’s not just any Audi either.

This video takes us for a ride aboard nothing less than the legendary Audi S1 E2, driven by Schwarz at the 2005 Eifel Rallye. The onboard film was shot years before YouTube swapped to a widescreen format, so you’ll have to pay attention to the center of the screen. That being said, it’s pretty awesome.
