Martin Brundle getting his butt kicked in a 250 GTO.
It's fifteen minutes of bliss even if the first part of this clip consists mainly of new BBC Formula 1 commenter Martin Brundle getting passed left and right at last fall's Goodwood revival. He's short shifting, he's missing gears, but who would not be nervous racing a car worth about $20 million on a track with mostly grass runoff?
Well, Mark Hales, that's who. In the second part of the clip, after the driver change, it's Hales who does the ass kicking, slicing through the traffic, seemingly without fear. Of course Hales is very familiar with this particular GTO and its owner, Nick Mason.
I always recommend Hales' great book Into the Red if you are lucky enough to find one for a reasonable price. Remember to get the version with the CD!
Don't miss the clip after the jump..
