Slow Motion At the Nurburgring
There is no doubt in my mind that slow motion video of motorsport is endlessly fascinating. Watching tyres being pushed to their limits through corners, springs compressing over bumps and carbon fibre wings wobbling and shaking is the best way to understand the forces at work on a racing car or motorcycle as it screams around a track.
We’ve seen slow-motion footage from motorsport before – you must have watched the shots from F1 races that the directors switch to when there’s a lull in the on-track action. Now it’s the turn of the Nurburgring VLN races, thanks to Nürburgring.tv. It is, as you would expect, both beautiful and fascinating to watch.
If this puts you in the mood for more slow motion footage you should watch the latest in the Racing In Slow Motion series.
A tip of the hat to Bridge To Gantry for picking up on this video.
