This is what happens when you get a whole heap of DAF's together for a race... There's also a few other races, one of which Top Gear would definitely approve of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7ipFApsFec
I think Top Gear already has
featured Dutch Reverse Racing... but if they did it was on Old Top Gear, it was the kind of thing Tony Mason was known for reporting on when his Northern tones weren't talking about rallying or vintage cars. When it came round to Reliant Robin racing, he was entered in a race, and as Current Top Gear says, "that's not gone well!"
There are a few archives of Old Top Gear on Youtube and... accessible by other means. If I was ever to watch right through them all I might even find it, if it's there, but I'm sure I remember the cars in that feature being Beetles (presumably with the back axle flipped over). Of course, this being the Netherlands, using their own pride and joy was the logical move, because those DAF Variomatic gearboxes could go just as fast in reverse as they could forwards. I'll bet that was a right barrel of laughs on the streets of Amsterdam.
Incidentally, how many of you knew the Volvo 340 was supposed to be a DAF? Show of hands...
