    Default 'The Best' In-Car Footage Thread

    I want to start a thread where we can share good in-car footage of professional race drivers squeezing everything out of the car.

    Post your favorites!


    I'll start:

    Greg Murphy in qualifying at Mount Panorama in Australia. it was back in 2003 and is still the lap record, AFAIK. Just freakish.

    that massa / kubica battle makes me think I need to give up racing cars and go pick up oil painting or something. That was crazy.

    I like pretty much any video with Manly behind the wheel. The SOW in the rain one had to be one of my favorite to watch just to get my driving spirits up. Manly's an inspiration!

    Default Best videos

    I really started my interest in motor sports going to the local dirt track and watching sprint cars.

    How about this for some drifting or slip angle?
    800 hp in a 1200 lb car, 100 mph on half mile oval, open wheels on dirt, does it get any more exciting?

    Or "the pass" as it is know at Laguna Seca.

    Alex Zanardi trying to win the Indy Car Championship in 1996, had to do something very aggressive, he claimed afterwards it was a brake malfunction, I did not see any smoke, he did this on purpose.

    The most epic driving I've seen. Test driver going all-out on the Nurburgring with traffic in a rear-engine, rear-drive Porsche with no traction control or ABS. Oh and no helmet... If you haven't seen it, you're in for a treat

    (BTW, I'm new here! I'll make a sweet introduction post in the appropriate thread later today, but I just wanted to post this. Oh and Miatas FTW! -Chris)

    I think "slip angle" is only used in reference to the contact patch angle of deflection not the car's yaw rate. Sorry to nerd out on you guys

    That video reminded me of Flying lizard ALMS laguna 09 all over again. I can just imagine the radio call to the driver. "DO NOT PUT THAT PIECE OF **** PORSCHE INTO THE WALL, DO NOT PUT HIM IN THE WALL."

    Not the "best" but I got a big grin on my face after watching this video. Gives a new definition to "twitchy butt car"

    thanks ameer. That was a fun day. I had big time understeer problem as I was still trying to sort out the rake on my suspension at the time. So i had to flick the car more than usually to get it to turn even in the rain.



    Here is a crazy onboard on 2 wheels. Sorry Jeff, i broke your rule.
