Top Gear meets Dario Franchitti
Triple Indycar champion, married to a movie star, car nut. Super Dario lets his driving do the talking in a Fezza face-off
Posted: 28 May 2012
Dario Franchitti might just be the best racing driver you've only slightly heard of. Scottish (despite the obvious Italian ancestry), 38, he's married to Hollywood actress Ashley Judd and has won the last two Indycar Championships on the bounce, making three in total, plus two Indy 500 victories. Stats that make him, as the Americans so elegantly put it, ‘the winningest British driver in US open-wheel history'. That, even given our Formula-One-skewed perspective on motorsport, is a big deal.
