Here's my attempt at the new surprise competiton in Raceroom, featuring the record-breaking electric Volkswagen ID. R car. Driving the car is surprisingly tricky and fun as the approach to it is very different and you also realize how much we rely on gear changes to keep our rhythm on the track. And there's also almost no engine sound, obviously. The lap in the video is my third completed lap as I was trying to get used to the car. I think I didn't do all that bad, but, as noted at the end, I later managed to improve my time significantly and there's still room for improvement for sure. But to be some 4 seconds slower than the guy who set the record with the car IRL on a long track like Nordschleife...well, I'm quite happy with that.
