One Wild Ride in a Daytona Prototype!

In this video, Grand Am driver and 2010 Rolex 24 winner Joao Barbosa takes his wife out for a ride around Daytona International Speedway in the insanely fast Daytona Prototype 2-seater.

Turn up the volume to find out if you can tell the passenger's shrieking from the transmission's as the car goes 185+ mph!

1.32 Translation from Portuguese -> If I ask you to stop, you stop, OK?
1:40 Hard to tell the screaming from the gearbox. They go together so well!

2:10 I'm going to hold on to my own helmet for better protection!
3:05 That's it! I'm covering my eyes!
3:35 Let's see if sticking my arm in front of me would give me a better sense of safety...
4:45 OK, I'm done. Closing my eyes for good now. Don't even need to put a hand in front of them any more.
5:44 Take me out of here!
