WATCH David Coulthard Has A Laugh Taking On A Taxi In Cape Town, South Africa

You have to be really fast and really brave to take on South Africa’s taxi drivers… which Scottish race driver David Coulthard most definitely is. Plus he has a great sense of humour! Watch below as he competes against a local taxi driver in the streets of Cape Town, and then rides with the taxi.

The video, part of a Red Bull promotion, is brilliant as it showcases the beauty of the Western Cape… and comes replete with some uniquely South African moments – like a car washer popping out at the stop street.

YouTube users have given the video a big thumbs-up although Andries Stander pointed out: “All South Africans know that in the real world this taxi would have won AND gotten all the people to where they needed to be along the way…”

Coulthard was in Cape Town last month where he treated a big South African crowd of around 50,000 to three runs and doughnuts on the streets of Cape Town… as well as to the most unique rendition of the South African anthem we’ve ever heard!
