Alfa Romeo's Undertaker Stunt

To mark the arrival of Alfa Romeo's Limited Edition Alfa MiTo, the Quadrifoglio Verde SBK in the UK, the Italian car manufacturers coordinated a world first driving dare, dubbed ‘The Undertaker’, involving precision driver Paul Swift and British Superbike rider Chris ‘The Stalker’ Walker.

The challenging manoeuvre saw Chris on a Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja British Superbike ‘undertaking’ Paul in the Alfa MiTo SBK with the car up on two wheels. As Paul took the Alfa MiTo SBK around the sweeping Brooklands corner at Silverstone, Chris throttled in on the inside line, building up enough speed to get the bike over and, for a brief moment, go under the chassis of the Alfa MiTo SBK before speeding out the other side to safety.
