help finding youtube of M3 at the ring

Hi ladies and gents,

Was wondering if anyone had saved the link for video by a UK car reviewer...forgot his name (not one of the top gear guys)... taking his M3 in the rain at The Ring. He had a microphone on his helmet and he was narrating during the drive. He did a nice job explaining the sections of the track, his speeds, and his terror driving at speed in the rain (he DSC on, and it was flashing throughout he said).

I know you guy's will know his name in a flash. I've been searching and all I pick up is random homemade vids and the top gear stuff.

Thanks in advance.

Yes!!!!

Thanks man!!!! You rock!!!

Damn, love this video....dry sense of humor, driving in the rain, shifting through the gears while chatting away. What's not to like.
I remember his other video obsessing over things like his driving shoes and the shadow trim on his car...like we all do.


Thanks Dude!

Great vid. Even though it was very wet Chris looked as though he was still putting his foot into it. What a brave sole.

Thanks for sharing.

Chris Harris is now with Pistonheads. Articles and vids most days. Worth a look if you've never seen it. Just google pistonheads.

Autocar is the same outfit that sacked James May for putting a hidden message in an article... Now what does he do?

This guy has balls... earned my respect. I've been there in the dry and it's scary as such... I can only imagine in the wet.
