How to overtake 17 drivers in one lap
Watch Al Buncombe destroy EVERYONE at the Blancpain Endurance series
Said Al is British Nismo works driver, Alex Buncombe, and this is he at Monza in a GT-R for the opening race of the 2014 Blancpain Endurance series.
Buncombe started the race way down the grid in 32nd out of 44 cars, but with some judicious elbowing, nudging, and a few moments of blind faith, ended his first lap in 15th place.
So, who's got the biggest veg? Al, or this German?
