Blaenau Ffestiniog, Wales - It started off as an alcohol-fuelled ‘What if?’ session at an awards dinner and became, once the hangovers had cleared, a serious ‘Could it actually be done?’ question.
And in the end what you see in the #Skydriver promotional video for the 2018 Wales Rally GB actually happened - they sent a Ford Fiesta rally car down the Zip World Titan foefie-slide at Slate Mountain in north Wales.
The 85-second video shows a Fiesta S2000 in the livery of the rally sponsor tackling some of the rough Slate Mountain gravel roads that will form two of the special stages of this year’s Wales Rally GB. At one point the route takes it into the start area of the Zip World Titan (which actually has four ziplines side by side, so you can do tighten your sphincter alongside family or friends).
And the next this you see is the car majestically sailing down the valley, suspended from two of the ziplines - right through the end-point and back on to the road, without even slowing down.
