You are about to watch Tom Scott try to cope with having Andy Goulden drive him around the Nurburgring Nordschleife while explaining what the track is and how it works. For most of us here on this site, he's only preaching to the choir. But for normies, this will be fun.

OK, we can derive some fun from seeing Tom, a relative outsider, go from apprehensive to shocked to exhilarated to wanting to do it again, and commend him for doing a competent child-ready primer on the Green Hell, but otherwise, I want you to at least share the video Tom made here to the curious bystander who wants to learn more but won't be willing to sit through more than ten minutes.

Now, this isn't the first time that Tom has been driven round before: a robot took him along for a ride as part of Roborace's demonstrations, but I imagine the 'Ring is more to the taste of this forum.

And to prove exactly that, here's what amounts to a behind-the-scenes look at how Tom experienced the Nordschleife, featuring Misha Charoudin.

After the ride, Tom and Misha walked the grounds, took a quick jaunt to ED, a local pump station, and talked at some more length about what happened to Tom. It's equally as endearing, especially because Misha's apparently been looking forward to having Tom along.

  • Thought it was cool... until he showed the car he would be using, an electric self driving race car? Literally the worst idea in history and is supporting to thinf that will have catastrophic consequences on the world

    • No, no, you're looking at an older upload, Ethan. Tom's 'Ring video is on an AMG-GT R.
