Professional Racecar Driver Leona Chin Punks Driving Instructors
It’s become a common theme in automotive meme-dom: Disguise a professional racecar driver/stunt driver/professional driver as a driving newbie, inviteÂ a series of unsuspecting passengers to take a spin with the aforementioned ringer of a driver, then film the hilarity that ensues.
Ford did it with Mustang Speed Dating, a series that saw a professional female stunt driver taking a string of first dates on a harrowing ride in a Ford Mustang GT. Chevy put Jeff Gordon in a Camaro and had him scare the expletivesÂ out of an unsuspecting car salesman, then followed that up with an even better video punking an automotiveÂ Â journalist that doubted the veracity of the firstÂ Gordon clip.
Now the most recent variant of these meme is a clip showing professional Malaysian racecar driver Leona Chin punking a number ofÂ driving instructors who are duped into thinking that they’re training a novice driver in need of driving instruction. As is the case with the other clips I mentioned,Â unwitting drivers are shocked and surprised when the ringer finally drops the disguise and reveals her true driving chops.
