Default Cool vid of Stig doing a demo run in an Audi Quattro Group-B car

From the description it says that this is a run to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Audi Quattro, but I have no idea where or when this took place. Just thought I'd pass it on:

Gave it some hell at the end, but still a cool vid just for the close-up shots of the car and engine.

I had read an article about this run. Stig ran the Audi on one of the stages that is used for the Monte Carlo Rally. Supposedly Audi treated the local police to coffee and food and they closed the roads for 15 minute intervals so they could go out and run the stage as fast as they wanted.

Awesome! At first, I thought he would just be cruising along the whole time, but then at the mid, you heard it!

Wow that Audi sounds wicked! It was nice to see Stig hang it out a little once he got it warmed up.

I just finished reading through the article in Sport Compact Car from the ~June issue about this exact event. Great to see the car in action!

If I wasn't just a n00b I would have known about this and asked the Stig about it at Maine Forest this year.
