Swedish Rallycross driver Kevin Eriksson has made one of the wildest passing moves to win an event in Germany.

The 20-year-old was competing in the FIA World Rallycross Championships in Germany, and made a pass that nearly beggars belief.

In the middle of the pack from the first corner, Eriksson purposefully overshot the apex and then drifted back in to overtake the leaders on the first corner.

The view from inside the car looks even more aggressive.

"I saw an opportunity to go on the outside and hoped for the best. Somehow it worked!" exclaimed Eriksson.

You sense the other drivers wouldn't have been too thrilled with the move, but it paid off as Eriksson coasted over the line to win.
