Epic Rally Video

Group B Monsters - The Days of Madness: "Group B" was the most exciting and the most dangerous sort of rallying: with 600 hps supercars roaring through country lanes and narrow city streets, these monster machines were dubbed "Too Fast To Race" (see documentary) and banned back in 1986. This stunning slow-motion video pays homage to these legendary cars and almost superhuman drivers who made history from 1982 to 1986... check out the crazy crowd near-miss at 4:26 mark -

Heaven's Gate

This is the Tianmen Cave in China, which literally translates as the "Gate to Heaven"; however, it's not fully a cave, but rather a colossal natural arch...

The way to the Gate is a wonder in itself: it has exactly 99 turns which lead to a massive staircase with a total of 999 steps - more info:
