In the classic fable of the tortoise and the hare, the proud and arrogant hare is defeated in a race by a much slower-moving competitor — the tortoise — when he takes a nap mid-race. The tortoise takes advantage of the reposing rabbit and keeps up its slow but steady pace, all the way to the finish line.
In this video, the tables have been flipped on the hare, which finds itself working hard to catch up with its opponent — in this case a finely tuned and highly advanced rally car.
At least the crowd gives a good cheer!
