The weather conditions at the Nurburgring can vary drastically from section to section within a single lap. This video shows several sections where the windshield wipers are constantly required and others where the track is a bit drier. Watching this lap, we can point out several key tips that will come in handy when driving on a wet race track.
Kuba Giermaziak, who drove professionally as a Porsche racing driver in the past, is behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 GT3 RS, a powerful, track-ready car with 520 horsepower going to the rear wheels. As the video and the data show, there are several instances where the driver gets on the throttle, and the car doesn’t quite have enough traction yet. The 3:46 mark is a great example of this, where the driver needs to give a dab of opposite steering lock to catch the car as it gains traction.
