I’ll be honest with you: most of the “how to drive” videos I’ve ever seen are absolute crap, either slapped together by amateurs who don’t know what they’re talking about or filmed using pros who fail to explain exactly what they’re doing. Worse, some of these videos make track driving look deceptively easy. Which it is, until it very suddenly isn’t.
Mercedes-Benz has put together a series of videos starring Tommy Kendall and featuring their AMG Driving Academy. The videos are superb: they’re well filmed, informative and (best of all) they teach you just enough to leave you wanting more. The videos are also very good at teaching you what you don’t know, and when it comes to track driving, that’s a good thing indeed.
Below are the four videos in the series so far. I’ll keep an eye on the Mercedes-Benz You Tube Channel and post more videos as the turn up. In the mean time, enjoy these.
