Think you’re a pretty good driver? Well, maybe you are. Maybe you’re a very good driver. But are you V8 Supercars good?
One of the great things about the V8 Supercar Series is the great camera work they do for the telecasts. Even though this season they had fewer cameras on cars than in previous years, it still resulted in some amazing footage. Now, as we told you before, the Bathurst 1000 is the biggest, meanest, toughest race, and toughest track of the series. It requires a level of skill even most of the regular drivers can’t fully claim to have.
So, since today we’re learning about the intricacies of heel-toe downshifting (or, ball-ball downshifting… hee hee hee hee hee!), who better to get a further education from than some of the best drivers out there. First up, we have Cameron McConville, for a solid lap in the wet at Bathurst. As a side note, that clutch requires 60kg of force to press, and the brake pedal requires 100kg of force. That’s, like, a million pounds or something:
Followed, of course, by Garth Tander, perpetually one of the five best drivers on the track in any conditions, doing a comparable dry lap at Winton in 2007. Not as great camera work in this one, but still something to watch. Any time someone tells you that racing drivers aren’t really athletes, direct them to these videos.

This is a very interesting website. I am very
intrigued by its design and style. And also I believe in consumerization of the
businesses and also believe that in the near future every business will be
following this approach, not because it wants but because the demand says so.
