Hell, I went out two nights ago doing that kinda thing! The wonderful thing about having an E-brake like ours, is that you actually work it BETTER than a hand-brake, and still have BOTH HANDS ON THE STEERING WHEEL !! I was putting the rear-drivers to shame!
Of course the Series 1 Regal had the same setup and I ended up helping to dig one out of drift while I was out there.
2 things.....Looks like he took out his camera man in the beginning......And did anyone noticed that they're doing all that with studded tires???? Hahahaha I like the spin counter that they had when the silver car was spinning acrossed the lake.....I wish I had a Subaru Imprezza WRX.....That'd be WAY to much fun......My 4WD truck is fun enough for me right now lol.
I'll Take a WRX over a Bonne any day... SOOO fast, and so chuckable.
Oh a Handbrake is my favorite. I have a foot one with release in my 93, and it'* kinda a PITA. I am getting better, but i still gotta release it... Steering with one hand is natural after learning to drive on a stick.
