This photo was taken at Chateau Lastour, located in south west France near Toulouse. MRTE went there often to test the rally cars. The gravel roads were very rough and great for reliability testing.

I had the amazing chance to ride incar during tests with all three of these gentlemen.
I remember of a time with Hannu, when, he went flat out over some big hole. I was really young and got scared for the car. After the run, while he turned around, I asked him if he could drive around the hole this time. He looked at me and said "ok". So he did.
I was happy :)
