Go Fast Or Go Home

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - What To Watch -

THE race to­wards the fin­ish line has never been more chal­leng­ing for Malaysian race car driver Daniel Woodroof than in Go Fast Or Go Home. That’s be­cause, in­stead of the high-pow­ered ve­hi­cles he’s used to, Woodroof has to com­pete in more tra­di­tional modes of trans­port.

He trav­els to var­i­ous lo­ca­tions around South-East Asia to learn and take part in tra­di­tional races in this six-episode se­ries.

One of the most in­ter­est­ing episodes is see­ing Woodroof com­pete in mud cow rac­ing in In­done­sia. Woodroof stands on a wooden plough at the back of two cows, as he is dragged through a muddy field. It looks vir­tu­ally im­pos­si­ble to mas­ter!

The show re­ally of­fers a unique, eye­open­ing look at the var­i­ous cul­tural prac­tices in South-East Asia.

In an­other episode, Woodroof heads to Thai­land and races in a long tail boat. Pow­ered by an en­gine, the only way to steer the boat is by lean­ing one’s body to the left or the right.

Be­fore he even gets to prac­tise rac­ing on the boat, he is tasked to empty a boat filled with wa­ter us­ing just a sponge. It takes an hour but he ac­cepts all these in stride.

Woodroof has a wide-eyed, sun­shiny vibe about him and ac­tu­ally has a real knack for host­ing. With his boy­ish good looks and rich speak­ing voice, he has a bright fu­ture in front of the cam­era be­sides the race track. – Ken­neth Chaw Go Fast Or Go Home is avail­able on dim­sum.
