It’s the Dave & Eddie show!

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

David Coulthard, Red Bull Racing-Ferrari, Hungaroring, 2006David Coulthard and Eddie Irvine are to appear in a new Sky TV programme in which they coach celebrities on race car driving.

The Race will air in Sky’s autumn season and be presented by Denise van Outen, who appeared at the launch of Tyrrell’s last ever F1 car in 1998.

The celebrities participating in the challenge include:

  • Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Clarissa Explains It All)
  • Goldie (drum and bass musician and actor, appeared in The World Is Not Enough)
  • Cerys Matthews (singer with the band Catatonia)
  • Frankie Muniz (Malcolm in the Middle)

Eddie Irvine, 2000Irvine and Coulthard will be charged with getting them up to speed in time for a fastest lap shootout on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit.

It sounds pretty awful, but it will be interesting to see how the two get on as they had a fair few verbal spats when the two were in F1 together. I’m also curious about how Coulthard’s fitted it into his racing schedule.
