Video: Flying lessons in a Kia Sportage

Tom Webster

This video is definitely from the "what happens if I stick my hand in this fire?" school of thought. A group of young lads in Poland, out playing in the woods on their quad bikes, decide to up the ante and tackle a steep hill in their ageing Kia Sportage.

Unfortunately, bravado out-muscled brains and the descent didn't turn out to be the smoothest affair. Judging by the high-spirited reaction, this might have been the intention in the first place though. No-one came off too badly in the ensuing tumble, although the car didn't fare so well judging by the plumes of smoke it chucks out when they get it going again.
