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.

Yeah, that was great! And I think as a racer they need to memorize every curve and course they have taken. As a girl, long term memory is her great weaponsmiley

Wow! What a great memory! The tendency of the guy is that have shorter memory unlike girls and if she narrates it with a complex detail well its not that shocking.

I agree! She maybe an expert driver but I’ll be proud of her if she can drive his F1 while blindfolded.

I bet she’s already memorized the course of the barber. Pretty amazing isn’t it? I bet she can compensate will all the twist and turn of the course.
