You can take the man out of F1, but you can't take F1 out of the man

Back in 2015 I was lucky enough to be invited to film The Thunder Dragon Rally. The rally was the first of its kind to be allowed in the country of Bhutan. No racing was permitted due to the dangerous nature of the roads but that didn't stop the drivers having a bit of fun.

The thing with Alistair Caldwell is he has a photographic memory, once he has driven a track or a road once he knows it and it becomes boring. As such he is always seeking out new and challenging roads, he found just such a road in Bhutan. The Chelela Pass is the highest road in the country and descends into the beautiful Haa Valley. To add to the fun I put a Go Pro on his Porsche 912 and set him a challenge; to leave the top of the mountain last and see how many of the other rally cars he could pass along the way.

We watched the footage back in the bar that night to much cheering and booing as he hunted down the next car. Now here's your challenge; Alistair is driving a Porsche 912 but how many of the cars he passes can you identify?
