François Delecour takes Chris Harris for a spin in the Porsche GT3 RS – Click above to watch video after the jump

This is what happens when you put people other than navigators into cars with ex-World Rally Championship drivers: EVO's Chris Harris makes more than a few faces like this, while François Delecour looks like he's on a casual Sunday hunt for Starbucks.

The camera is inside the car so you don't get to see how Delecour throws the Porsche GT3 RS around tiny French B-roads, but in 13 minutes behind the wheel of the GT3 RS he talks to Harris about trying to enter one in the Monte Carlo Rally, about what changes he'd make to the car, requests ABS be turned off in order to drive fast, and he takes a phone call. When one remembers that Delecour's recent Sunday drives were done much faster and often sideways, we guess it's all right this time. Follow the jump for the video. Hat tip to Derek!

      I think he said he'd rather have it *without* ABS.

      I've gotten rides that scared the s**t outta me like this. One in particular that comes to mind was when I rode shotgun with Indy Lights driver Richard Antinucci in a Murcielago around the infield track at Cal Speedway. I don't even think he was anywhere close to his (or the car's) limits either.

      Dose anyone else see the similarity between François Delecour and Michael Richards the actor from Seinfeld.

      Enjoyed the video. Even though there weren't flashy fly-bys throughout(there was a nice drift at the end), the interview itself was actually a good one despite the facial expressions of constipation by Chris Harris lol

      Classic......... a blast with one of THE fastest guys on Tarmac in the world, exactly where he practices. Pity about not once pointing the camera out the windscreen.

      If Delecour did ANY of that in Australia they'd confiscate the car... no mater if Porsche owned it or not (eg Lewis Hamilton in Melb)

      In the words of Chris Farley, "That....was.....AWESOME!"

      someone should start a business putting a good rally driver and having customers be the passenger. I would sign up in heart beat.

      Lame video. 13 minutes of Chris Harris' face plus the Porsche's wonderful engine noise.

      Evo, next time please mount a camera that faces forward. Thanks.

        Love the sound of that engine!
      • 4 Years Ago
      Driving and talking on the cellphone (no hands-free device)? For shame.

      Otherwise, lovely sounds.

        They're Europeans...they can probably handle more than one thing at a time. Plus he's French...he can probably even make love while doing the other 2. Wee-wee-mona-mee! Whaahaahaa...ha!!! :-)

        And all that on an open road :D
        I can't wait to drive on these French roads next month ^^

      WRC rules! What these guys, and girls can do with even the most mundane vehicles is amazing.

      French hills, quiet roads, beautiful weather, a GT3, no police, no speed cameras...i'm in heaven. Topped off with a Chateaubriand a bottle of Margaux, a few hands of blackjack and a night in with the twins...

      Is that really too much to ask, Santa? Really?

      Dont get me wrong but Chris Harris is very annyoing, his vids are more boring than James May.
