The Nuburgring Nordschleife, also known as the “Green Hell”, is one of the most challenging tracks in the world. With 154 corners over 12.93 miles and a multitude of elevation changes, the track can take a while to learn. Former Maserati Test Driver, Ferrari Formula One Engineer, and CXC Simulations Lead Advisor Josh Allen has put together a video showcasing a lap around the track in Assetto Corsa, to help drivers learn this tricky circuit.
In this video, Josh Allen took the Ferrari 458 Italia around the Nordschleife, where he has logged “Too many laps to count” in real life (He also states that he has once done over FORTY-SIX laps in one day!!. He uses the Motion Pro II cockpit with a special pair of glasses, which can track his head movement, and show where he is looking. That’s pretty cool!
This was a very well-done video, and upon watching it, I think it will help me pick up on some spots where I was struggling on the track before. Thanks to CXC Simulations and Josh Allen for putting out this solid, informative video!
FUN FACT: Josh Allen is actually a local to my area, growing up in Healdsburg (about 15 miles from me).
