Cockpit cams are awesome. They give you, roughly, the same view the driver has as he goes round the race track, so you can basically learn your way around it by watching the footage; learn the racing line, braking points, the right gear for each corner, and the surface of the track. It becomes particularly handy when the track in question is the legendary “Grüne Hölle” the Nurburgring.
So buckle up as we go for a ride in a Mercedes SLS GT3 driven by AMG Customer Sports coordinator Thomas Jäger:
Nurburgring is such a wonderful place. Honestly we have half a mind to move there, just so we can start each day by doing a couple of laps!
