Pacy Coulthard thrills fans with stunning show

“I have been driving over 200kmph all my life. It is difficult to keep my speed below 100kmph,” he said after the drive.

Much to the disappointment of F1 lovers here, MSRDC, which owns the bridge, had asked Coulthard not to drive at over 100kmph, the permissible speed limit on the recently inaugurated Bandra-Worli sea-link.

The much-awaited run lasted barely for a few minutes, but was more than enough for Coulthard to capture the imagination of all those present to witness his latest conquest.
Scenes of disbelief and amazement could be seen on the faces of onlookers as Coulthard vanished from their sights in seconds after starting the engine and they kept an eye on the chopper recording his movement to know his position on the 5.6-kilometre sea-link.

DC, as he is affectionately known, also enthralled people with a couple of 360 degree spin-offs.  It was unfortunate as he could not repeat the performance as the engine overheated forcing him to stop.

“Unfortunately, the run was short. I’d have liked to drive a little more but F1 cars are fragile as they are designed for special circuits,” he said.
