"Some classic Mini and modern MINI action on the legendary Col de Turini, probably one of the scariest stages in rally history, that made the Mini famous back in the 60s."

1st Video: Shows how it was filmed, using some interesting and expensive looking camera and drone technology. Apparently Michelin closed the Col Du Turini to film this.

2nd Video: The finished and edited footage....

Not many would agree with that (although the behaviour of spectators lends some credence to it - and they are no better today, away from any competition on 4 or 2 wheels, according to Chris Frome, who trains up it).

Sadly I guess what we would find interesting would probably not generate enough viewings on youtube for Michelin and others in the modern media to bother to finance it...
