snakebite whincup

They say Aussie’s are made of strong stuff, and so they should be when most of their local wildlife is out to kill them.

Ahead of the 2015 V8 Supercars test at Sydney Motorsport Park, someone thought it would be a good idea to get six-time champ, Jamie Whincup, to pose with his championship trophy at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo… while wearing a snake.

The snake who presumably wanted someone else to win the championship for a change, gave Whincup a few bites but the Red Bull Racing Australia driver is sure the injuries won’t affect his driving and thankfully he saw the funny side.
