Italy’s historic Monza racing circuit is renowned for being one of the deadliest and most challenging racetracks in the world. You wouldn’t know that from this race footage though, captured from within Al Buncombe’s NISMO GT-R during the 2014 Blancpain Endurance Series.
Buncombe qualified 32nd out of 44 cars, and quickly passed an astonishing 18 cars in his opening lap. Talk about hard-charging. By the end of two laps, Buncombe slotted his way into the 13th spot, having passed entries from Porsche, Aston Martin, Bentley, Lamborghini, Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and Jaguar. If this were Forza or Gran Turismo, we’d have just crashed our way through, but then again that’s probably why we don't drive GT cars.
