Watch A Blindfolded Magician Drive A Mercedes Around A Fire Lined Track

Most race car drivers are bad passengers. So you can imagine that former F1 driver David Coulthard was rather nervous when he went around a track lined with fire driven by a magician in a blindfold.


In what is a bit of viral fun for Mercedes, Coulthard goes for a ride around a track with British magician Dynamo, which I hear isn't his real name. The track has fire gate markers and temporary walls.

It's pretty cool, but magic isn't exactly "real." So how'd he do it? I'm not sure. Maybe he drove a bunch of laps to get used to the heat of the flames to know when to turn? As YouTube commenters suggest, maybe he could hear the proximity sensors through small headphones?


Or maybe magic is real. But where did the lighter fluid come from?
