Like a scene from a Bond Movie or a stunt that D*ck Dastardly might pull, this is a novel method of keeping another competitor behind. Last weekend's FIA GT1 World Championship round at Nurburgring saw a mid field duel between these modern day Wacky Racers. Enrique Bernoldi in the Vitaphone Maserati MC12 has just been tapped by Richard Westbrook in the Matech Ford GT. So of course he hits the flame thrower button………………….
It was a case of "Drat, drat, and double drat!" for Westbrook as he received a drive through penalty for avoidable contact.
