You know those times when you are in an argument with your wife or girlfriend and all of a sudden she brings up something that happened three years ago inevitably causing her to win the argument over the sheer insanity that is her memory? Well, that is nothing compared to the memory of up and coming Indy car driver, Simona De Silvestri. Born in Switzerland, this beautiful 21 year old racer is coming into her own as a professional race car driver. She won 4 races in the 2009 season and led in points most of the way. In this YouTube video, De Silvestri’s memory is tested as she traces the Barber Motorsports Park while blindfolded. Not only was she able to trace the entire track perfectly- twice-, but she was also able to narrate each and every turn as she was doing it including which gears she would need to shift to. Impressive, huh? We thought so too and with this special skill and the driving skills she has shown, we’re pretty sure De Silvestro is headed in the right direction for a victorious racing career. Make sure you check her out as she makes her first appearance at the Indianapolis 500 on May 30, 2010.
