    Cool Team Lotus video and Nissan GTR

    Hi guys,

    Also let me plug my own video I have made about the Nissan GTR () check it out!

    just had time to check the GTR video, I assume that if the Autocar guy would sit a little bit more backwards he might go much faster. What happened to the Jim Clark stretched arms driving techniques?

    I just have noticed that, he practically has the wheel in his lap. Driving with arms a bit bent is what is preached by racing drivers on the vids I see, though not really to that extent. He has the seat almost as far forward as my mum!

    The Lotus F1 video will not show for "copyright reasons."

    His driving position isn't unusual if he's short, either way it's better to have the wheel so that your arms are bent enough to allow hand crossing. Shuffle-steering is easier too. Wish the car I tested had that seat instead of the stock ones!
