Earlier this month, Nissan NISMO athlete Al Buncombe showed Porsche, Aston, Audi, Bentley, Mercedes, Lamborghini, BMW and Jaguar how to be the boss of the first lap of the Monza circuit in Italy.


In the opening race of 2014 Blanc Pain Endurance series, Buncombe climbed 17 places in the opening lap alone. He started the race way down the grid in 32nd out of 44 cars, but ended his second lap in 13th position, leaving the team in a great position.

This on-board view catches all the action from Buncombe’s point of view.
