You’ve been warned Europe. If you see a 300-lb. giant black dude barreling down the road over a course that’ll take Ndamukong Suh from London to Istanbul over the next 7 days, please get out of the road. The Detroit Lions DT will be driving the Mercedes you see here, starting just a few hours ago, against the likes of Bode Miller, Tony Hawk, The Hoff, Christian Slater and other Euro names you wouldn’t recognize here in the States.
The Lions giant has been keeping fans updated on his progress via Facebook where he wrote 4 hours ago:
Made it to FRANCE… heading to PARIS!!! Check out the Eurotunnel!!
Suh is taking part in the race via a sponsorship deal he has with Ubisoft, makers of the game Driver: San Francisco. He had been rumored to be driving a Chrysler in the race but revealed the Mercedes earlier today via his Facebook account.
The first leg of the race ends tonight in Paris. Tomorrow it’s off to Albi, France where drivers will hit a race track and locals will be able to see what these machines can do on the Circuit d’Albi. Friday evening will be spent in Barcelona.
Suh summed up day one with this tweet from Paris.
I’m amazed at how beautiful #Paris is and wanna come back and stay for awhile one day!! Only in #PARIS!!!!
Updates as they are warranted.
