Video: we heart Lebanese hill climbs

Watch Roger Feghali and his modded Mitsubishi Evo VI going wild in our new favourite motorsport

We have to admit that, up until this morning, we weren’t too clued-up on the world of Lebanese motorsport.

But now, thanks to the power of the internet, we’re massive fans of Lebanese motorsport.

Because, it turns out, while some race drivers spent literally a whole day endlessly lapping the French countryside, one brave man pointed a rather bonkers Mitsubishi Evo at the summit of a hill in Falougha, Lebanon and gave it the beans.

This man was Roger Feghali, who was competing in a prototype Mitsubishi Evo VI against his brother, Abdo.

In the second round of the 2015 Lebanese Hill Climb Championship, Roger gave it his all to walk away with a record-breaking run and an internet-breaking video.

As you’ll see above, Roger not shy in trusting the limits of grip of his turbocharged Mitsu: click play to see him jump, slither and drift his way up the twisting route.

But aside from the driving part - which is very impressive - it’s the sound of the Evo that’s got us going. With a boosty turbo and trick anti-lag system it flutters, squeaks, pops, bangs and ffmmmpphhs like a firework display in an industrial popcorn making facility.

Surely this is all the ammunition Mitsu needs to bring another Evo back into the world?
