He is pure class! There's a vid on there somewhere that includes his footwork, unbelievable stuff.

Seen him a few times before at the World Series by Renualt in the 5, pretty epic car control it has to be said!

Did you hear about his tiff with the Marshalls at Goodwood? He was told no donuts on the hill climb went out in the new rear wheel drive Renault prototype and did 360s going up the hill. Marshalls gave him a rollicking and said we told you no donuts and he gave a Gallic shrug and said they were not donuts, they were pirouettes as the car was always moving forwards and donuts are what you do when a car is stationary. Pure genius

Ragnotti is a legend! I've seen a video on YouTube with him taking someone out for a test drive in a Clio. I'll try and dig it out.

He makes drifting a fwd car look so effortless. I'll make sure not to try to emulate him though - it could get very messy very quickly.
