Plenty of people think they have what it takes to whip through the Green Hell with a fury. After all, if they’ve “driven” it on Forza a bunch of times, plus have a highly capable vehicle, it should be a breeze. Right?
Nurburgring is a long and technical track, so even good drivers can struggle with it.
The video below shows that track driving experience can trump all of that. A ‘Ring taxi driver behind the wheel of a BMW M3 is able to keep up with a Porsche Cayman GT4 and Lamborghini Aventador SV. That’s an impressive feat.
It’s obvious, watching the video, that the taxi driver knows the ‘Ring incredibly well. He should, it’s his job. To be fair, the other two drivers do pretty well, especially the guy in the Porsche, but they’re just not quite good enough to shake a professional who’s clearly enjoying his job.
