Professional rally driver Rahul Kanthraj makes the daunting task look effortless in the video below. In reality, the ordeal required running multiple laps and using GPS to make sure the outline was accurate. The map measures about 3 km (1.86 miles) in length and 2.8 km (1.74 miles) in width for a total outline periphery of 14.7 km (9.13 miles).
