Car porn, wet Nordschleife edition

In 1968, Jackie Stewart won an insanely dangerous — and very wet — German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring nordschleife.  He calls it the drive of his life, and it surely ranks among the top motorsports achievements of all time.

You’ll never get to see a full on-board lap from that race, and neither will I.  This makes me sad.  On the other hand, this lap of the tourist course in an open-wheel Formel Master car is an impressive consolation prize.

I… I just… wow.

    Frightening. What I find most amazing is the speed at which he can correct slides. It’s not that slides don’t happen, but that he can fix them correctly and very quickly when they do happen.
