Tom Cruise and Paul Newman star in GT3 – the Battle to Stay On The Track.
Everyone knows that Tom Cruise likes driving fast cars. And if you’ve watched Days of Thunder you’ll know he has some race car experience.
But even before Days of Thunder, Cruise was feeling the need for speed on track. Nissan has just dug up this old footage of the pint-sized superhero racing in a GT3 event in 1988. His team principal? None other than fellow actor-turned-racer, Paul Newman.
Cruise didn’t fare particularly well, but heck, it looked like he enjoyed it, and his face brought quite a few more onlookers to the race. Now then, Ryan Gosling for F1?
