BBC Sport - Jenson Button takes on David Coulthard at Rallycross

Button & Coulthard do Rallycross

Watch as Jenson Button swaps his McLaren Formula 1 car for a 600 horsepower VW Beetle Rallycross car.

The car Button drives competed against his father John during his own racing career in the 1970s, something he gave up to help Jenson's career progress.

Button, the 2009 F1 world champion, then swaps the Beetle for a modern Rallycross car to take on David Coulthard around Kent's Lydden Hill circuit.

John Button died last year, aged 70.
