Yup. As long as your front tires are pointed down track and you manage the throttle...you're good. Let the rotation of the car do the steering for you.

I bet. I'm guessing covering my eyes and crying would have about the same effectiveness or results as this maneuver.

A few minor moments from my last Nordschleife trip. It was wet from the previous night's rain. Took forever to burn off Did run my fastest lap to date later on the same day.

Everyone needs to realize that the Nurburgring is absolutely terrifying in the rain.

Seriously like driving on ice!

Absolutely no traction ... Plus I have Bridgestone RE-11 tires, they are horrible in cold damp conditions, unless they are nice and hot.

I remembered this post when I came across this video yesterday. This gives some great perspective of what it's actually like

Cotton corners @ 4:15

Sunset @ 5:55

Sunrise @ 6:10

Grand finale @ 6:40

kaiv,

just a few observations:

1) Awesome!!! Truly.

2) looks like so much fun but way too many walls at Road Atlanta for me to try any of those shenanigans

3) I now have Tire-Budget Envy after watching this

4) I give you mucho style points for the left hand out the window, but I think you could manage a backside rail grab or something like the snowboarders do, maybe a Method Air off the curbing. something to work on.

5) did I say awesome yet?

i messed around with this last time on the skid pad that wet day i told you about. i actually found out i naturally let go as well and let the wheel unwind on its own until im ready for input the other direction for the next cone.
