    Well, I guess most of us know the track by heart and know how to 'dictate the track blindfolded'... let us see him DRIVING while being blindfolded...

    This is very impressive, but anyone can make a mistake even with their eyes open.

    He does say that he might in the future. I mean, that's assuming that the Nurburgring's insurance will permit it - I'd guess a dual control car would be a vital cog in that machine.

    For fun, put the video on, then go to GT Sport's Nurburgring Nordschleife Touristfahrten track with a seven-minute car and follow his audio.

    He really obviously knew where he was the entire time. I think the got "brakes" at the "wrong" spot a few times, but not by more than a tenth or two of a second. The driver was probably compensating for fraction of a second differences in instructions. From a high level, that instructor knew where he was the entire way no question, to an insane level of accuracy.

    Ehhh ultimately not that cool, if he’s an instructor he probably hums the laps engine notes in his sleep.
