Watch: Food Prep and Rallycross Driving do Not Mix

As anyone who is a fan of Rallycross will already know, Rallycross cars accelerate violently, decelerate violently, corner violently, and do just about everything with a ferocity that would put a Grizzly bear on steroids to shame. Naturally then, you’ll have asked yourself how easy it is to do normal, everyday tasks in one.

Not, it turns out, is the answer. Celebrity chef DJ BBQ recently went for a ride in an RX2 car (a lower-powered series that runs alongside the full-fat FIA World Rallycross Championship) with the voice of European Rallycross, Andrew Coley, to find out just how hard it is to assemble lunch from the passenger seat of a Rallycross car.

And as almost all of the burger DJ BBQ was tasked with making flies out of his hands and into the air during one of the sport’s famous jumps, two things become eminently clear: First, whoever’s job it is to clean up this rallycross car is going to have a very unpleasant afternoon; and second, rallycross driving seems to be about as a physical an experience as boxing.

You can watch Johan Kristoffersson and Petter Solberg back behind the wheel of the VW Polo RX on August 4, as the series is back in action at the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres, in Canada.
