Hysterical video: How the British envision NASCAR

1 Comment

Spending vacation in London, Ontario is the next best thing to hopping over the pond to the real London. (Well, at least in theory.)

There’s plenty of British influence not only in London, but nearby Stratford and adjacent Shakespeare, which hosts the legendary annual Shakespeare Festival of plays.

So we were sitting in our hotel room Wednesday night and, while playing on the Internet, came across this hilarious video of one Brit’s take on the world of NASCAR.

Anthony Richardson bills himself as the Bad British Commentator, and it definitely shows through here with his malapropisms and complete lack of understanding of the sport and world of NASCAR.

Among the drivers that suffer Richardson’s scourge and wrath are Jimmie Johnson (watch as his tires get “stolen”), Kyle Larson, Brian Scott and Gray Gaulding.

It’s hysterical. Or, as they say in jolly old England, it’s bonkers!

Thanks to TheWhistle.com for the video.

The focus this week is on the United States Grand Prix from¬†Circuit of The Americas in Austin, but because it’s Tuesday, the Pirelli tire selections for next week’s Mexican Grand Prix are also out.

And for once, there’s a wide variance in selections.

Both Red Bull and Ferrari have gone for a more balanced portion of supersoft and ultrasoft tires, with Red Bull only selecting six sets of ultrasoft tires.

Meanwhile all other teams have gone between eight to 10 sets of ultrasoft tires.

The full breakdown is below.
