FURmula 1: Driver races bear on highway near Sochi (VIDEO)
The unusual encounter took place in the early hours near the village of Krasnaya Polyana at the Black Sea resort of Sochi.
The driver stumbled upon a bear after making a sharp corner on a spiraling mountainous road. The car and the animal than traveled side by side for some time, with the man filming the running beast in its full glory from a very close range. High speeds were involved as a brown bear is capable of making 50 kilometers per hour.
