Audi showed this video during the RS4 launch. For some reason I just thought of it and, sure enough, it's on You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiW3FzHagRA

Bummer my French is so rusty. The version we saw had subtitles.

Well, his daughter is telling him "like this" and "saying "good brakes", him telling her "I was waiting for you to show up", him saying that 6 grand, 7 grand , 8 grand--it's like you're in an airplane", "that's not easy to do when you're old" (I think) her: "what do you have to say now?"

No clue on the last exchange, though. Basically a bunch of father-daughter quips.

Regardless--VERY badass that a legend has a daughter who can rip around a track. That is too cool.

I agree.. very very cool that the racer's genes got passed down like that. Between that and the accent, I think I am in love

I really should have paid better attention in HS French class. However, I completely understand Ickx's engine noises! Vroom!

This one is the funniest Honda related one I have ever seen.

If your'e ever at Robeling Road and meet a fellow everyone calls "Frenchie", ask him about Jacky.

He used to rally Cortinas on the same team as Jacky, back in the day when hay bales were used as chicanes.

Nice man. He built the engine in my Neon, which was strange, since he speciallized in European cars.

In reply to mad_machine:

Now how cool would it be to have Jackie Ickx for a daddy? She's pretty, too.
