There’s nothing worse in a automobile than slippery race footwear. Drivers, together with Supercars racer Dean Fiore, go to nice lengths to keep away from having moist footwear within the automobile. Overlook wrapping your footwear in a tragic little baggie, although. Fiore confirmed us the last word option to keep dry throughout final weekend’s Bathurst 1000.
This 12 months’s Bathurst 1000 was extremely moist, presenting an enormous drawback for drivers who didn’t need their footwear to slide proper off their automobile’s pedals after they hop in to race.
Fiore skipped the shoe-condom route and had a crew member carry him over the puddle to a dry spot subsequent to the place his No. 23 Nissan could be pulling in for a driver change.
Naturally, this isn’t the primary time this has occurred in racing:
This wasn’t the one piggyback this 12 months, both. One of many successful drivers was carried by his teammate onto the rostrum after losing his shoe within the post-race celebrations.
Truthfully, the one factor that’s lacking from Bathurst is one other crew member banging a pair of coconut halves collectively to make horse sounds.
Come, Patsy! The race automobiles await!
