To start; apparently Talladega Nights was a documentary about this guy. Seriously, is that Will Ferrell going for the ride along?
American Nascar legend Darrel Waltrip jumps in a BOC sponsored V8 Supercar for a lap around Bathurst during the 2011 Bathurst 1000. The result is simultaneously hilarious and very interesting.
Darrel Waltrip’s commentary is fantastic!
“This place is a geographical oddity”
A complete breakdown and hilarious commentary all coming from a guy who is a living legend for racing around in circles inches away from the competition on the banked tracks of the US Nascar circuits.
For a good perspective on what he was going through here is a first person view lap of Bathurst with Jenson Button. Truly insane!
