I’m Not very fond of the cameras onboard, or the GoPro on helmets, but these 16 minutes, yes I have been worth it. The discovery I made in the forums Ten-Tenths and it’s a camera in the helmet of Jeff Westphal, pilot of the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, during the qualifying session for the first race of the VLN, that championship that is held exclusively on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
If you’re only interested in seeing the back by the path old Nürburgring I recommend that you skip directly to the minute 5:29 of the video, but to me has called me attention the comments that are made among team members before Westphal gets to ride in that marvelous creature that is the SCG003C: points where it slides in the track, accidents… Also, at the end of the video is listening to the comments of the pilot himself about his impressions behind the wheel, and the celebration of the second position in which it is placed with its back.
Although it is hard to think that the crazy dream of the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus will lead to an absolute victory in the Nürburgring 24 Hours given the efforts that always make for such a career, those German brands with their GT3, ahead of the edition 2016 the team has made great progress and, for example, participated in the 12 Hours of Mugello as training (in fact the photo that heads the article is of that race), where he fought for the win until the gearbox said enough.
