Typically, when you think of a 90-year-old person driving you think of the following: a cushion on the seat so they can see over the wheel, the never-ending turn signal, hard and unnecessary braking, 15-second delays between the light turning green and them pulling away, and taking every small turn as if it were a hairpin turn. Okay, maybe that’s a little bit of stereotyping, but we’re going to call it like we see it.

One thing that would likely not cross your mind is a gravel and dirt stomping, tail wagging, rally grandma. Well, you can scratch that one, as we have just come across a video of a 91-year-old lady, who neither looks nor acts her age. She decided to give rallycross a shot and wagged an `ol Suby’s tail all over some gravel and dirt.

Though she looked to be in a subdued panic a lot of the time, she really did a pretty good job navigating the course. Her co-driver was right along with her, guiding her through the course as she went. She does, however, fly off-course at the end. You can actually hear her say “Did I hit the cone.” Her co-driver then jokingly responds “You went off course, which is worse than hitting a cone, unfortunately.”

Okay, maybe she’s not the next Sebastien Loeb, but it still takes a little bit of gall to do what she did, regardless of the fact that she never actually left first gear. Take a look at the video, it’s definitely worth it.

She seems young to drive that Subaru. Why don’t you guys let grandma try the Bugatti instead of this Subaru?

Wow, it’s true. I thought she was just wondering with that Subaru. It’ll be better if she also has a video where she is driving a sports car on a high speed.

Grandma really rocked that Subaru for a ride. I guess she could drive a super-car to be more enjoyable to watch.

Wow, grandma makes me amazed at her ability on driving a Subaru—in that particular skills despite the age of 91.

She may be old by now, but I don’t think she can make the Lamborghini hit the maximum speed.

LOL. Is grandma driving that Subaru? It seems a camera trick for me. I like it when Subaru is picking up the dirt and dust as this grandma make a round on that road.

It’s one of the best and entertaining videos I’ve ever seen. Grandma still kicked some power on that Subaru.
