Video: 19-year-old racing driver has the reactions of a caffeinated cat
Here we have Dino Zamparelli, a 19-year-old lad from the UK, who proved recently that his reaction time is that of an extremely quick cat.
Dino Zamparelli (his Italian heritage should explain the name), is certainly a rising star in his chosen sport. The young lad from the UK was racing Formula 2 recently when he showed off some mesmerising reaction times.
It was a soaking wet day at the famous Spa track in Belgium and the spray coming from the cars was making it utterly impossible to see what was going on ahead. Sure just look at the video above and you’ll see what we mean...
Dino had just rounded Eau Rouge, one of the most demanding corners in motor sport, as any professional driver - or Forza player - would tell you, when he found himself barrelling right into the path of a nasty crash.
It looks as though he’s heading straight for disaster when he somehow manages to sneak his car past the crash and out onto the grass.
It’s even more amazing that he managed to hold it together while on the soaking wet grass instead of heading straight into the crash barrier, which wouldn’t have ended very well.
If there was a prize for reactions of the year, we think he’d be the winner. Make sure to watch out for the young Brit in the not to distant future.
You never know, he could be the next Button or Hamilton... or Di Resta, at the very least.
