I think many of you already know this but for those of us that weren’t aware about how hard a 24 hours race can be, this is the best way to discover.
Most of you are passionated with F1 like myself. When we see the sport, we think like wow those cars are fast. Some of us think this is the hardest sport in racing.
That last one isn’t quiet right. Not if you look at these 2 video’s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHtVQ2lvs2I&sns=fb , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SWNcv52g8g . In the last video, there are 2 sentence which kept me thinking. 1) “You need to do the equipment of a whole F1 season in 1 day” (meaning racing day AND night) and 2) “That means I need to hold my breath, to stop my lungs getting crushed…”
Not only this but, you know the nordschleiffe right? This kept me busy with the question, how these guys can race for so long around the “hardest” track in history. You got SO MANY corners, and all of those drivers know them inside out + they even race eachother at a track where it is actually impossible to overtake… That’s why I got so much respect for those drivers. It’s nearly unacceptable to know that these drivers can race on that track for so long. Yet they’ve done it for years now…
