American NASCAR legend and SPEED TV commentator Darrell Waltrip says that he wants to drive a V8 Supercar around Mount Panorama.

After lapping the famous 6.213km circuit in the passenger seat of Jason Bright’s Team BOC Commodore VE, Waltrip was ecstatic with the experience.

“If I’m going to go for a ride in these next time, I’m going to be the driver,” Waltrip said after his lap with Bright.

“It was diggin’. Oh baby!

“This is his race car. This ain’t a show car. I think he drove harder in here than he did in qualifying. What kind of time did we turn? It had to be fast!

“Just think, I flew 30 hours straight to get that three lap ride.”

Waltrip is at Bathurst to call this weekend’s Bathurst 1000 for SPEED TV which is being broadcast live into the USA.
