Driving Around The Nürburgring In The Snow Is Trickier Than It Looks: Video
Lots of unintended wobbles and spins in this videoby Kirby Garlitos, on
For those who haven’t had the chance to drive in snow, it can get really tricky if you’re not used it. Take it from somebody who’s spun out a few times in the stuff. However, I can’t even begin to imagine how difficult it must be to drive on a racetrack in the snow, especially if that racetrack is the Nürburgring.
To be fair, a lot of the drivers in this compilation video from the recently held Nordschleife tourist rides seem to be doing good jobs at it. Some actually look like pros navigating their cars around the slippery track. But then there are those that end up losing control of their cars similar to what I’d probably be doing if I were behind the wheel. It really doesn’t take a lot to get the cars to wobble considering how slippery the track is. Some of the cars did end up in that precarious situation but most of them managed to regain control of their cars quickly.
If anything, this video paints a pretty clear picture on how difficult it is to be drive at high speeds when Mother Nature isn’t cooperating. I get the excitement of doing it, but if it were up to me, I’d leave my car in the garage, even if it comes at the cost of what looks to be a fun event.
