Gallery: The Father’s Day Challenge

From the twists and turns of Norwell to the rolling hills of the van Gisbergen farm, we followed the ultimate father-versus-son challenge across the pond to watch the magic (no exaggeration, seeing these two in action is as close as it comes) unravel. They say a picture says 1,000 words and we reckon these snaps of Shane and his dad Robert tell a pretty epic story.

If you haven’t seen the video – or if you just want to enjoy the awesomeness of Cheese’s rallying skills all over again – make sure you check it out here.
