When you're young, no one tells you marriage is really about finding some one to have, hold and torture 'til death do you part. From playful infractions like forgetting whether your significant other hates pickles, onions or both to more serious matters like who uses more paper towels, matrimony puts a relationship and those parties involved into the world's most powerful pressure cooker. Even so, few of us get the chance to delight in the suffering of our significant others in quite the way Rolex Sports Car series driver João Barbosa does. The driver recently took his beautiful wife around Daytona International Speedway in a two-seater Daytona prototype. At 185 mph.

Mrs. Barbosa doesn't appear to take to the experience all that well. Throughout the duration of six-minute video, it's difficult to tell whether the high-pitched wail is her screams or the whine of the race car's gearbox. Impressive. In fact, it's the most fun we've had watching a racer's wife get a peek into their husband's office since racer Riccardo Patrese's better half got a little animated in the passenger seat of a Honda Civic Type-R a few years ago.

Hit the jump to check out the video for yourself, but just remember; what goes around comes around. Especially in marriage.

      I could not distinguish between her screaming and the drivetrain half of the time.

      Soooo when she extends her hand forward with all 5 fingers splayed while screaming, is that the signal for slow down?

      Video ended too soon. I want to see the "conversation" they had in the immediate aftermath.

      Conversation heard after the the track run: Joao: "Now would you like to see what I do for fun after the track?" Wife: "No, thanks, I'm good. So sorry I doubted you. I'll never question your whereabouts ever again."

      Her arm flailing was good for at least 10 additional horsepower.

      I like how he still manages to hold her hand between gear shifts. Or maybe he's pushing her hand away. How loud does she have to be screaming to hear her over that motor? lol

      This video gets me thinking a couple different things. First, I would give choice body parts to have an experience (read: job) like that in my life. Second, this guy is a stud! He is shifting gears, looking as if he's baking cookies calm, looking over at his wife like "oh darling isn't this magical" and then there is the gentle pat on the knee and grab of the hand. All the while traveling at 100+ miles per hour, Amazing!

      Makes Riccardo's run look rather tame...but then again it is Daytona...

        And it IS a 550hp, under 3,000lb race car compared to that 300hp Civic Type-R.

          Don't know why I was downvoted, because Riccardo's Civic Type-R race car does have 300hp.
