Viral Video Friday - DC Shoes
After the success of the Gymkhana Practice video with over 20 million combined views, then enhanced into an amazing viral Part II with another 20 million + views, and now Part III – launched only 3 days ago and with over 5 million views already.
Shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l’Autodrome de Linas –Montlhéry, this 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924, features banks as steep as 51 degrees, which is more than double the standard incline of most NASCAR ovals.
The stunts are just amazing, a must see for any racing fan, and pretty much all men.
