Competitive Spirit

Juha Kankkunen at Rally Finland, 1990.  When his throttle cable snapped, he had co-driver Piironen steer so he could operate the throttle by hand - while sitting on the motor.

"I almost burned my legs and hands while doing it.  I throttled the engine by hand.  Smoke was coming from my gloves so I had to change hands frequently, but I didn't give up, no matter how much it hurt."

Thanks to nobody backflips jetpacks on oppositelock for the tip.
