Greatest co-driver ever?

Is there anyone you’d rather have on pace notes than the esteemed Barry Meade?

Earlier this week, we showed you what we thought might be the greatest drift video ever.

Now we think we might have found the world's greatest co-driver.

Contained within this snippet of YouTube brilliance are the dulcet tones of co-driver Barry Meade, directing rally driver Jimmy Deane and his MkII Escort around Cork Forestry Rally back in August.

We won't spoil the clip for you, but suffice to say the pace notes are both enthusiastic and DEFINITELY, DEFINITELY NOT SAFE FOR WORK.

Or kids. No, really. Wait until your boss/children are safely out of earshot, and then pass a muddy three minutes to the soundtrack of Mr Meade and his microphone.

When we finally get our factory drive in the WRC, we can't think of anyone else we'd rather have as co-pilot. Apart from Morgan Freeman, maybe. Or Madison. Mmm, Madison...   

Now share it...
