I must warn you that the start of the video is not very good but if you can bear with it for about 10 minutes you are going to get a terrific insight of what is to drive something that is this fast and powerful. As an amateur driver I have to say it is an absolutely brilliant gem of a video especially if you want to know what it is like to race on some of the most historic race tracks in the world. Anyone who thinks these drivers are not athletes should watch this video. Almost the whole video is from inside the cockpit and the drivers actual perspective.
It is rough and not high definition but it is absolutely the best video I have ever watched from a drivers perspective. It is better than watching F1 or the LeMans live on television. In this video you almost feel the elevation changes that somehow never get their due on television.
The driver is Derek Bell, who was a works Porsche driver when the Porsche 956 was all-conquering. During the 1984 season a camera was placed in Bell's car during the practice session on a number of circuits and this DVD was the result. Circuits such as Silverstone, Nurburgring (the North Ring), Le Mans (before it was emasculated), Spa (the modern version) are some of the treats. On some circuits Bell commentates, sometimes whilst driving, on other circuits a producer provides the narration, unfortunately, not always accurately but this is a minor distraction.
For any fan of motor racing this is an essential addition to any DVD library.
Filmed in 1984, the video and sound are some what dated by todays standards but then again, who cares? You get to ride along in a 650 bhp Rothmans Porsche 956 at 220+ mph! Enjoy the ride!
