Nash at the wheel of the Chrysler Valiant Charger

Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship driver James Nash has been putting his driving talents to a rather different use than usual – by starring in Charlie Simpson‘s (of ex-Busted fame) new video. The video sees him drive a Chrysler Valiant Charger along deserted roads before having a 50mph crash…into a fruit stand.

All of this comes after a busy couple of weeks for the Triple Eight Racing driver. At Rockingham he won his first ever BTCC race, and last weekend won in the GT4 class of the penultimate round of the British GT Championships in a Lotus Evora.

In the video for Simpson’s new track ‘Cemetery’, Nash was required to do a mixture of high speed driving and panning shots, and ultimately, the collision with the fruit stand. James was also on hand to tutor Simpson for his own, high speed, in car shot.

Nash commented, “As the BTCC is a non contact sport, it made a change to purposely drive into something! Seriously, it was a brilliant experience and Charlie was great to work with, he’s also quite handy behind the wheel. The fruit stand shot was challenging as we had to cut close to the curb and hit the fruit at 50mph, plus the trees next to the run off and a windscreen full of fruit kept me on my toes.”
