In the same way there are good drivers and bad drivers, there are also good and bad passengers.Naturally, there are people that don’t thrive on adrenaline and would rather spend their lives at the speed limit in the right lane.
But if you put them into a high speed situation, the reactions are often priceless.
And now, thanks to the proliferation of small HD cameras like a GoPro, we are able to see — and laugh at — these experiences.
There are hundreds of these videos on YouTube, but these are our eight favourites.
You would think the wife of a Formula 1 driver would be composed, but it seems that Riccardo Patrese is still able to scare his wife to death. Skip to 1:45 for the fun to begin.
Internet entrepreneur Robert Himler has a turbocharged Lamborghini Gallardo with over 1,200 horsepower. He also knows how to terrify his mother. The fun starts at 1:00.
Even dads can get scared. While the camera isn't facing him, you can definitely hear the fear. The language here is definitely not safe for work.
Finally, our favourite. This driver, Darius, is taking his excitable mother around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in a Corvette Z06. Her reaction in the corkscrew is priceless every time.
