Fernando Alonso, Jimmie Johnson Confirm Ride-Swap at Bahrain International Circuit

After weeks of teasing videos, a ride swap has become official.

Fernando Alonso and Jimmie Johnson will swap rides on November 26 at Bahrain International Circuit in  Sakhir, Bahrain. The two legends of the motorsports world will do something only a few other driver combinations have done in recent years joining Lewis Hamilton/Tony Stewart and Juan Pablo Montoya/Jeff Gordon.

Both drivers posted a final video this morning on their respective Twitter accounts entitled “will you let me drive your car?”.
