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.

I just remember a signage about being careful with the track is slippery. I felt that he is maneuvering the speed performance of the car. Nice technique.

I was impressed on how he makes an awesome lap on the wet track. Well, I was thinking of what tyres that they have used for this vehicle.

He definitely makes an awesome move here. The line technique is kind of difficulty. I was a bit scared as he turned around in track. I guess you really need to memorize the whole track before mastering the corner.

Hell! The track is quite slippery. I was holding my chair while seeing this car move around the car. I’m afraid that it might lose its control! i noticed that he doesn’t turn the steering wheel too much. I wonder on what is his lap time record.
