Mattias Ekström Under Northern Lights

Mattias Extröm is a world rally cross driver. This is his Audi Sport S1 rally car. Swedish legend Mattias took his rally car up to Finland's arctic region, and he got together with photographer, Jaanus Ree, and they didn't know if they were going to be able to capture this. One night when there was a clear sky, Jaanus called him out of the blue and said, "drop everything you're doing and get your rally car to the Frozen Lake!" So, according to him, there was absolutely no visibility. The only light source were the northern lights themselves and a flash of Jaanus' camera. Thankfully, it came together pretty well for some really cool eye candy. This comes out of the Red Bull content pool. Those guys are always doing something crazy.
