A lap around Nurburgring’s 73 turns is challenging even in what is deemed normal driving conditions, but take those 73 turns on a rainy day, in an open-wheeled vehicle while taking corners sideways, and that challenge is multiplied by about 100. Thankfully, Andreas Gülden, chief instructor at the Nurburgring Racing Academy, has the experience and skills to teach us all a little something on how this particular challenge is dealt with.
In this video, watch Gülden for a little over 12 minutes as he makes his way around the Nurburgring in a lap that would make even the Stig green with envy. And remember, please don’t try this at home. As previously mentioned, Gülden is a professional and this is a professional situation that needn’t be copied by amateurs. Heed the warning and don’t be a jackass.
