The Ford GT40: standing at just 40 inches in height it looks small, even as it passes a Ferrari 360 Modena. If you've never seen one in person, they really are incredibly compact, just the bare essentials of a mid-engine racing car with a body wrapped around it.

What is it about a car sliding sideways (on a public road) that makes us all giddy inside? We think it’s the way the car seems to dance across the road almost effortlessly—sliding from one side to the other as if that’s what it was designed to do. Watching this film, shot in the mountains of eastern Norway, we see Fredrik Sorlie doing what he loves. And doing it well.

At the heart of the American Euro scene is certainly the VAG culture. As we pointed out in our coverage from the Leavenworth Drive 2013, there are some extremely well known events that have established themselves over the years. Just about every region in the US has its own unique European event that draws enthusiasts from all over: H2Oi in the Northeast, a few big ones in California, and one of the most renowned in the Southeast is definitely Southern Worthersee, aka SOWO.

Here are our two favorites highlighting the SOWO 2013 event in Helen, Georgia.

Keeping that in mind, this newest version has all the adrenaline-pumping, tire-burning action of Gymkhana.
