Default Video: Jaguar X-Type races against skiier

I was looking for a neat video clip I saw years ago in Germany. They had 8 different vehicles drive UP a really steep ski slope in Switzerland to see who well they did. If I remember correctly the Toyota Rav 4 came out the winner, just point it and it goes where you want. The Land Rover was underpowered, there was one car that was so bad it not only didn't make it up, it almost tipped over as the driver turned to come down.

Anyway, I couldn't find it but I found something else in the "don't try this yourself" category. This is a guy driving a Jag DOWN a ski slope with a skiier trying to race him

Oooh ooh I sort of found it. This isn't the same one but it's the same idea.


If anyone wants it translated lemme know. You can probably figure it out but the six cars they have going up the ski slope (or trying to go up the ski slope ) are these in order:

1) 3 series BMW
2) X-5
3) Lexus
4) Volvo Cross Country
5) Nissan Patrol
6) Audi Allroad Quattro

That's Jeremy Clarkson, probably the UK auto show "Top Gear"

And that is one very very good skier... I wonder who that is?
