What's It Like To Drive (And Break) A Touring Car?

What's It Like To Drive (And Break) A Touring Car?

Show Video

Hey. Guys, Danish, boy, here and well. Welcome. To Denmark obviously. So, this is pretty damn cool I've been invited to this event over here in Denmark by my. Good friend lots of sorenson so thank you laughter for the invite, called. Dream concept, and basically it's a day full, of very, lovely, cars that I can't, afford so. From what I can tell this event is just essentially, a place people with more money than me come to drive really. Fast cars, and. Somehow. I found myself along, on the guest list, hi Lassa it. Sounds a bit about Dream Concert them because I've come along a bit blind but. You can tell me a bit more about it dream. Because it is a venn, company they usually run, their track events for. Random people on coming. From the road and this. Event here is an event, for there's, a lot of big car brands coming and, then people are invited, to come here and, to try out different cars, like 4i and, Macias and everything and. Then there's two, tracks here a high-speed, track and one way with a lot of corners, and. Then it's, just all about having fun here in different cars like racing, cars and and. Also. Almost. Street cars behind, you I'm. Especially looking Aldi, tell, us about it yeah the TCR. Current the ones that are driving the the world's Yakko. This, dowdy with the 360. On power and the, front wheel drives and that's how, tGI's and some people like it some people don't, but. It's actually quite cool time it's driving, really good there's a lot of little. Things about it because they and the handling of the car is so special compared to many other cars it's not like a GT car but, it's. Pretty, similar in corner speed as well so will. Be a fun car forgive me sarasu I've never really driven a front-wheel, drive car off, a farm. We drive car before what. Shall, I be looking out for when driving this there's, some few, points you need to take care of of course when when you have front-wheel drive their rears quite light and, when. When the rear slide you it. Would be a bit snappy sometimes yeah so that's something it's, mainly into heavens so you really need to take care of this and if. You get a slide make, sure just to go full throttle all. Right ultimately. And. Give you under eyes away again or to the breakings man, you. Can, go hard on the brake just on one, once you hit the, brake mark okay and, then, you have to go a bit off again because otherwise the rear will start to lock because, you know the rear will daylight and then you have to be soft on the steering you know the front wheels are also there ones that are there, both kind of control where you're going and, also getting, you forward, especially. Just being he's, basically, is being very easy on that yeah, be nice on the frontal because if, you go too hard on the throttle will start to push your way okay. So. Some try to manage it so you don't slide and understeer, but, you know at, the same time your steering you also. Getting. Forward hopefully, I won't spin. You. Have to give me something easy to say oh I, scream okay. As. You heard, probably. One of the highlights of my time, peers I'm gonna get to drive a LD, TC.

It's, Kind of appropriate thing that was kind of just announced in iRacing books I am pretty. Damn excited, than of course nervous, but. I think there's a lot of day to, get through before we get to that part so I'm. Just trying to doing the best I can so, this in front of me is the start I think of the handling. Circuit, or the circuit. With corns on as Lasser called it and that's where I'll be driving the TCR. Car a bit later on it. Just looks like a temporary, circuit made up with there's. A plastic bowl of things out there and I, think, this is the. Last corner down here, but. Of course there's also some, concrete there so I'm really hoping I don't end up in that while I'm driving around okay, so basically the. The. Event is now split up into two tracks there is the handle and drag which you've probably seen so far with a cars going around and the, high-speed track. Which you're about to go and check, out now so basically this is where all the people who buy the 200-plus bar now super cars can actually go 200, plus mile an hour if they're feeling brave. Haha. Here, is the carlyle be driving a bit later. So. You, join me inside the TV archives, that happens a bit quickly. We're. Gonna go out very quickly now just so I can learn the track and we'll go out with glasses just fitting any moment, and, we're going to just go out cruise around for. No. Just. Find the circuit and then after. The after. Lunch and after the track. We're gonna pull the cameras up in front of a proper attempt at it, so. There I was about to pull onto the circuit, for the first time in a front-wheel-drive racing. Car a TCR car no less now the thing that I was trying to get across in the last clip but ended up mumbling about quite badly, I was quite nervous I'm sure you can understand is that the reason why I wasn't wearing a helmet is because, the goal of this drive was to literally cruise around at low speed and just. Get a feel for the car and get an idea for the track. However. I ended up getting a little bit carried away. Yeah. This cruise alone see the track get them there. Start. Without a bell. Phone here because they're. Like this. Was. It. The. Cameras on. Just. Tell everyone what you just told me they're about that little run know you really wanna use. Quite. Impressive, I mean they're. So. First drive-in. Not. Quite as fast a straight line is still pretty down quicker, lots of cellar things. 350. 360 horsepower to, the front wheel speaking but no it's front-wheel drive unless you start really pushing it through, some of the cause it's really very very grippy, they're, very far didn't quite get up to full speed because then you really met to be a practice run that sat next to me was on he, had no seat belt something. We. Can really, gather kill. The cameras that are properly and have a proper runner and just well see how it goes, so that's ER it's about to go out in the TCR cars want the tires so I'm playing Marshall. There, you go. Save, me the logic just take. Care in the Bosporus. Okay. Well. Then Here I am inside. The. TCR, Cup on my own rather head out onto track got my helmet on this time so you guys haven't got give me. Right. Melody. So as you can see and probably not here I was having an absolutely awesome time, Ragan, this Audi TCR. Car around. This little test track but as time went on I started to realized, the gear shifts for getting a little bit slower and they. Weren't really engaging, when I wanted them to. To give a problem. Oh man. Thrush. What happened. Let's start playing up. But not. Today I was, shifting. Really ladies in the shifting. So. Since I never started stopped yeah. And. Then. If he I loved. You hit the brakes in them. Maybe, my my cost. Is estimated at, mother yeah. So, as you can probably imagine I was pretty anxious after, driving, back into the pit lane I'd convinced myself I've broken, this. Very expensive, very pretty, howdy TCR, race car initially, that support it may have been I have blended the throttle and brake a bit too violently, that I was being very sure not to do that it's kind of very hard to keep tabs on that when you're concentrating on so many other things so. To see, if the car was okay and if it was just something that was a little maybe a limp, mode or a safety mode the car got into him, and Daniel went out into track to see if they could try and diagnose, in right. Seems. Like it, is, it's. Probably plush, I. Don't see how you can do anything wrong because you, know when they're sad in these cars even.

With The DSG gearbox they pre-loaded well it's not like this handbrake. So, even if you were to. The, difference. In my opinion but think, what we'll do now is first, of all let it cool down then. Try, to check out the days to see if there's any alarms. Or anything. But, it does change up, really. It's, like you know if we just let the clutch burn. So. Unfortunately that little issue meant no more driving on that date with the TCR, car and despite being assured. That it wasn't my fault in fact the car has, actually had a similar issue reported, at a previous of them I couldn't. Help but think that everything, was just somehow my fault but luckily on the next day of the event we came back and the Audi was pretty much back in full working order and after watching back some of the footage that I captured from the previous, day that's offered to take me out in the car with, him driving to show where I could kind of improve in braking. And cornering speed. And just give me an idea what it was actually like to attack, a course, in, a front-wheel drive touring, car. Now this might sound a little bit stupid but what I learned from NASA is that I could go faster pretty, much everywhere, it was just a case of having a lot more confidence, in the car I could brake late I could carry more speed into the slow corners and into. The fast corners getting, used to the grip of slick tire has is kind of more difficult than you think it is your body is saying when you're turning in no this can't possibly stick. But it does and usually, you're quite away under, the limit but with the lessons from NASA in my mind I was determined to go out and really make the most of my final session. Yet, unfortunately day two entered very much the same way as day one with a mechanical, issue meaning. The gears weren't really shifting properly I'm still not really sure what the problem actually was it may have been a lingering clutch issue it may be in that I was shifting a little bit too high a bit too aggressively, may, also be in that I was ball spinning a little bit coming out of the slow corners, and I had overheated, something of course it was a shame that it cut my drive short but the lamps I had out there felt. Really very fun indeed and I'm. Hoping one day I'll get another chance to drive this awesome machine again. And really, most important is is that you get some left now, it's. Not a huge buff okay. Cool not my fault. It. Does seem like it is a, class issue of some sort, I've, been I feel sure that it wasn't my fault and it. Was something, that was actually happening on the car before it came here but it seems got worse as time has gone on it's been drift before so, it looks like that's my last run out in the TCR, car but, my. Word one experience, I think I'm probably gonna finish off this video, when. I'm at home so I can kind of Cathal my force a bit and it's, something the Saatchi. Well. That, makes sense I guess. By. The way my brother with, me time in Denmark, is coming, to an end. I. Think it's a drive as many rope cars before I, was, going to that doesn't really matter too much because the whole experience of me was just dominated, by getting to drive this TCR. Car anger, to here last be I, think very complimentary. Of my. Driving to me that's really that's really important, because of course I'm a sim race that it's a dream to be able to do it realize and to hear that I'm not terrible, is is. It's. Really nice it's, a smile on my face. Structured. As maybe McLaren. Videos I did previously that was with a cameraman I did, just pretty much all on my own which is ideal because I'm. Not a cameraman I'm just, a guy who shouts at a camera so trying, to get things sorted out was quite difficult for the most part I think we've got quite a lot of decent footage from inside the Audi which is which. Is good and hopefully is something. You guys enjoy but, before I end of this video I've got to say a massive. Proper. Thank-you to blasto, Sorenson I wouldn't, be here voting for him he invited me to this earlier on in the year I thought that I wouldn't happen and yet here I was you know driving these awesome cars and getting. To be around so many other beautiful, machines it's, it's. A it's an enthusiastic, dream and I'm very grateful but. Yeah guys that was it that was my experience in Denmark's, driving a TCR. Car and sitting. Here now at home saying that into microphone, it never really feels. Normal. I feel incredibly. Fortunate to, be in the opportunity, now where I get in fights these events and get Drive cars. That I never thought I'd ever have the opportunity to even go near its. It, makes me feel very, happy indeed, and it. Always puts a massive smile on my face saying, out loud and again I am eternally, thankful to to, last and to dream concept, for making it all happen I really hope you guys enjoyed watching the video as much as I enjoyed, making it if you did of course liked it make sure to hit the like button if you really enjoyed it hit subscribe and the, bail notification, icon to be made aware of video videos like this and future, streams, and, between you and me I really hope these opportunities keep presenting themselves, because I have a driving bug simracing, is fantastic, it's the substitute, but you can not replace, the real thing Drennen the sound the smell the.

G-force, It's, something. That I find myself quite addicted to and hopefully I can do more in the future take care have an awesome day see, you all next time. Zero. We, games a lot of. Meat. Or something, hi. When I woke up this morning I didn't think I'd be raising the Mini Cooper in a retro race like. The elements fit.

Show Video


I wrote out some captions for the first onboard. I recommend you turn them on otherwise you'll have no idea what I'm saying haha.

Living the dream Jimmy! keep it up dude!

I'm really happy for you but there is one thing i need to tell you. Something that i've noticed that you and others do but real racers dont. You tend to do some mid-corner downshifts that unsettle a real car to much imo.

I think i know why you broke the car! Its cause you were short shifting!!!!

If you ever need a camera man and some nice b-roll as well ;) I would love to join you on these kind of events! Great video as always!

The question should be "how DID YOU MANAGE to break an Audi" - with extra lol

Jimmy broadbent how could you break a audi lol

Dude, Jimmy you have it. Your description of the slick tires grip was spot on. Teaching people to be confident and trust in the car and understanding how much grip is possible with slicks. People always underestimate the grip potential. And the way you described how your brain says this is not possible but it is. Once you break that barrier you will become super quick.

ah ok, i was wondering why the cc was spot on for the parts i couldnt even hear you, but they were way off for the normal sounding parts lol.

way to use the full revs and really push it. repecc

Jimmy Broadbent you should ask next level racing for a motion v3 (it is a compact piece of equipment). It puts simracing in a all new world with vr. Ok it is not real life but is quite closr to the movement of your body in the seat.

Jimmy Broadbent take a shave.

+Ty S. It's okay Ty...some things youll never get ;)

+Chris ScarsWhat side of the pond are you talking about lol I've never had an issue

I dont know what youre saying half of the time...Us on the otherside of the pond can never understand what ya'll are saying...

Nice dowdy there

I can't believe a peasant like you was allowed to touch a Rolls Royce

I mean I appreciate the fact that you're teasing us all with these various race car driving videos, but won't you just admit already that you're replacing Hamilton in Mercedes next season?

11:24 tiametmarduk line

hope you have a great time in my country :)

That looks insane jimmy very jesus not going to lie! you looked rapid as well!

"Okay Jim, we're doing a slow outlap so get a feel for the track" Jimmer: *Hits 5th gear and 120 mph down the back straight*

You lucky bastard

I think the problem was that Jimmer did the downshifts to early and cuz of that the clutch heated up somehow?!?

Jimmer Boi! So proud of you! It is exhilarating to watch you grow in and develop your craft.

That guy, Lasse is so chill....

are you in denmark or why is there a fellow dane?

Yay, i live in Denmark!

Jimmy, you are almost too humble. It's all the hours you put in your work that brought you to events like these. 10k viewers on N24 was proof in itself that you are doing something right and that its not just fortune that brought you to this point. Keep on rocking!

11:23 "They say you cut the course. You need to slow down and give up the position"

I thought jimmer would possibly get a decent commentary gig, seems like he may go straight to the hot seat. Set up a go fund me page, we might be able to get you there.

Wow Jimmy that is so awesome and I'm so chuffed for u, defiantly a dream come!! congratulations and was a great vid to watch...as always! But what's with the haters guys, people not liking this and giving

Great driving jimmer. Interesting for you to test the r3e Audi TCR now you've driven the real thing....

08:55 nearly spilled my tea hahaha

You need the AC shift protection ;)

3:45 "KOTE" rofl

Confirmed Jimmer as test driver, he can find all the issues with cars

Hey guys, it’s “I keep rubbing my nose when I’m nervous” boy here

Nice to see you get this kind of experience Jimmer, you really deserve it!

Has a real tendency to not wear gloves, prostate check would be interesting

I genuinely want to see jimmer actually get picked up by a proper racing team and actually participate in races, I think he actually has talent.

Peter Finch?

How to drive faster. Take off glasses so you can no longer make out your brake markers

Hey Jimmy, where in Denmark is this? Where I live there is no track or any place at all to race. The closest I can get to racing is go-karts, and that track is way too small. Denmark is not that far away, and I visit there occasionally, and I would love to race! Great driving!

Bro you get your chance to drive an epic car again. What do you do ye have somebody beside you with no seatbelt. Your nothing but a boy racer. I use to have a lot of respect for you jim boy. Not so much anymore. Don't satify the fan boys.

Driving the real thing is probably a lot easier than any racing sim,, mainly due to real feedback from the car and the surface - so your reactions and inputs are become more natural and instinctive.

car has got too much grip, that really demands of the clutch, maybe it was already a bit worn out though

Now I wait for the day that you and Nicki Thiim are race car bois together.

this is awesome dude. so happy for you. and my boi got some skills. #givejimmyadrive

Jimmer, if you're trying to make everyone of your followers feel jealous I think that you have succeeded. Such, a cool opportunity for you to get to do. And nice clean lapping!

Jimmy road to one million!


This is so cool to see. We're all happy for you and the exposure you're getting. Keep up the great content and these experiences will only keep coming.

Barely have to touch the paddle shifters for them to change gear

Racing a Mini in a Rolls Royce Ghost, living the dream there Rudolf. I mean Jimmy! Sorry Jimmy...

So glad your sim racing has given way to opportunities like this because you deserve it Jimmy Boi!

I’m loving these irl videos shimmer. Really enjoy seeing you do these kinds of things!

Cutting more corners than the writers of game of thrones.

Really cool to be brought along for your amazing experience. Also glad that you didn't actually break the car or worse yet bin it :) your last run particularly the last few laps were on point! very comparable to your professional friend's go at it.

I hope someone could maybe give Jimmy a chance at a real racing seat one day, he really deserves it

tcr have fragile gearboxes, happens to all of them

so happy see you get the chance to do this. let's see how fast this laps the Nurburgring!

1:54 we know this is a lie

So you wear gloves for the sim but not when driving a race car for real?

I appreciate the struggle. It is almost *more interesting.

Man that Audi got muffled, usually the TCR'S are quite loud little buggers lol

from a sad gamey boi in the shed to this. so fucking proud of you jimmer, you deserve all the success you're having.

props to the camera man that sat on the dash

i wonder if it was the aggressive downshifts .....xD

id love to see you go to a trackday in your mx5. I have an NA which I'm planning on slowly upgrading as time goes on. eventually ill be able to drive at my local track here in california.

Never knew how many glove fetishists there were in the comments. Concerning.

Depressing to see only about half the grill is an actual intake

The spec allows for aerodynamics changes, and I presume they blocked off that middle grille to make it more streamlined. The air intakes are just at the sides instead; makes sense to my layman eyes.

Jimmer will be racing nascar in no time.

good stuff mate. those downshifts did sound way too early on your first runs, maybe that's what stressed the audi out

Loving all the real world stuff Jimmy, it’s great to see that you can get here.

So happy for you to have this experience! No jealousy what so ever.. just a danish racer not able to live his dream..

"Jimmer, you're breaking the car!"


Savage, delighted for you Jimmer, poxy electrics mang. She wants a sequential shifter.

That track is like a baby of Top Gear Test Track and former WW2 airfield known as Sebring

Well done man, great driving for having driven so little in real fast cars and especially that specific type of car. And Lasse is absolutely awesome!

Quik Brit breaks race car.

Do the shift paddles shift when you just touched them? It looked like they didn't move at all

Jimmy's gonna get a seat in a series at some point, I can tell

It's really nice to see you so happy. It looked utterly amazing.

What were those paddles like? It looked as though Lasse was just touching them and gears were being changed

That DSG box sounds brutal:)

I hope you enjoyed your stay in Denmark jimmer

Way to go Jimmer. I live vicariously through you haha

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo HYPED for this car in Iracing!! And hopefully other TCR cars in Iracing

Awesome :) Try looking at the camera, not the screen, in the selfie video shots though!

Very nice vid man glad you enjoyed it

These videos just make me smile the entire time

That moment when you get to race a Rolls Royce against a Mini, and it's not the best part of your day... I swear I'm not envious. Nope. Not at all... Ok maybe a little.

I love the irl stuff, but you have to learn to stay cool. How about actual driving instruction and a racing license? I would watch that. Have you ever heard of this guy: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZ2eIJY0phalm_MG38kE26A . He runs APEX at the nordschleife, they have a hotel and all the cars in the world for rental. I am sure YOU and your 250k subs would get a discount

Despite the clutch/transmission issues, bloody hell Jimmy, you are a natural. First with a rally car, well, technically drove your Miata around Nurburgring, and you get to drive a Touring car. Huge, HUGE shoutout to Lasse though, an absolute legend of a guy, must say. Without him, you wouldn't have shares us your good driving in the touring car. Your future is extremely brighter now, if you do take a break on streaming or playing game, Motorsport could be your next big thing. This might be your way to go after all. Good jolly show, Jimmer.

I've been watching Jimmy's channel for a while now. Every time I see him get in a real car I'm always chuffed to bits. Good on you Jimmer!

You look terrified!

i went to simracing because i couldn't keep up with budget in real life. even a tiny car costs a kidney to maintain. it's a rich sport. we can't deny it. but sim racing is here to let us race for very little money in comparison.

15:13 When Lasse Sorensen turned into a complete badass all of a sudden

No race boye gloves and no footcam? /dislike :P

Why are you hand placement so weird

Absolutely fantastic Jimmy. Not just the driving itself, but also the quality of this video, you seem to have gotten very good with editing. Anyway, cheers and also IS THAT AN EFFING LMP2 CAR AT 12:55?!?!?!

Hot damn Jimmy you're killing it this year, loving all this content

Wears gloves while simracing, no gloves while driving a real racecar.

Thrilled .. gj on breaking the clutch ffs kik

Man i have been fighting depression for a long time too and i am really proud of your achievments over past few years! All the best from Serbia

You mean you didn't crash out on the 3rd lap?

you like Denmark ? :-) lucky with the sun I see

Dude :D i am so happy to see you driving real race cars,like real race car drivers.i am as excited as you :D my mouth reaching at my ears :D

Now you can try the Audi in Race room

This car is coming to iracing soon, so Jimmer, you want to one on one me bro?

Wow what a seriously awesome expereience Jimmy! What is it with you and awesome Danish race car drivers?

I drive for the team you drove for :)

Lasse is a cool dude.. great driving Jimmer!

Gooooo Jimmy. Audi Fanboy!!!!

Stick to the Sims jimmer u can't destroy them

save me the logic just take care in the Bosporus. Okay

we'll go out with Lasse = we'll go it with glasses ! (ok, I'll stop now)

TCR car = TV archives ! fuck me, this gets better

the rear will be light = the rear will daylight

hairpins = heavens !

haha, lasse sorenson comes up as lots of sorensen (sounds like a mucky movie)

I would guess a clutch sensor issue, myself - the clutch sounds like it's holding fine when within a gear? But, if it doesn't know the clutch position/pressure, it'll have to revert to a very conservative program, and I'm not surprised by lazy shifts like that in such a conservative program. (Annoyingly, the last DSG car I drove shifted almost that lazily *without* being in any limp mode... Americans are used to torque converter automatic transmissions being that lazy, so VW started tuning them like that for the US market...)

when youre training and youtubers came up with pro go...

Mint Jimmy

Nice Job! Really liking the IRL vids :)

W E L L D O N E J I M M E R! This was a great video

Think its a really bad thing that those guys are not driving with helmets on... what if the brakes fail? Or anything happens? Nice video, but better to wear a helmet with such a big audience!

The only thing i noticed that MIGHT have caused issues with the car, is that you were resting your fingers on the paddles a lot more than when you look at Lasse drive later in the video. Where you tend to rest your fingers on the paddle for a while, Lasse stretches his fingers beside the paddle, and then slaps it to change gears... I'm not an expert on TCR cars, but i could understand if doing what you did might put slight pressure on the paddle, leading to the cars computer getting confused as it might be enough to activate the computer, but not enough to actually change gear. Again, i'm no expert, but it could be the same effect as when people rest their foot on the clutch, making it overheat, or how resting your hand on the gear stick might put strain on the gearbox... It's difficult to say without data from the car, but it's the only thing i can really think off that wouldn't make warning lights light up in the car

Jimmy, how does the weight of the steering wheel compare to a direct drive wheel?

German cars, man. Always breaking down. You wouldn't have had that problem in an Allegro.

wanna see the breaking force? Just look at the seatbelt next to Jimmy at 17:49 19:50

He thought he is gonna sold out his whole shed and the setup to pay for the repairs of the car Jk

I'm just so happy watching you driving real cars... living the dream!! You go man!

Do these cars have both styles of sequential shifters?

Fast driver breaks car built for medium speed.

I just love when they give full frontal on the LD.

Well that was nice. Fucking great stuff Jimmer.

Im so happy to see you smile Jimmer!

19:11 they say you cut the course

BDSM ~ British man sadistically dominates submissive German girl until she breaks twice.

Hey jimmy what’s more realistic, sim or real life?

Enjoyed this greatly Jimmer. Well done


Congratulations and I am so happy that life offers you such great opportunities, you deserve this

So you're saying you we're in scandinavia and DIDNT do a scandi flick? DISAPPOINTED

Jimmy, have you thought about doing a amateur racing series like ginetta's? That would be really unique documenting the whole thing

Happy for you to get to do this and feel what it really feel like to push your limit in a real race car, sure hope you get to do more of that. "Your head scream break, that's when you should go faster and trust the car", it's so easy to say but so hard to do. From what I saw I think you did great, well done. Tough luck with the gear box tho but then that's all part of racing. ;) CHEERS!

11:23 They say you cut the corner!

While in britain, Alex from Failrace is doing a banger race in the mud at 15mph

Crap. I absolutely have to get a force feedback wheel :D Savage driving Jimmy.

Is the footage at the end stabilized on your nose? it's funny watching the last part focusing on your nose :p

Do a side by side video of you V Him so we can really see the difference + which lap of yours was fastest?

Lasse seems like a amazing guy

you forgot to do your helmet up for the second run!

What gearbox do they use?

inb4 racedriver Jimmy show up in a couple of months / years.

Jimmy Broadbent: drives fake racing cars around fake racing circuits using a game, a wheel, racing gloves and racing boots. Also Jimmy Broadbent: drives very real racing cars around very real tracks, without racing boots or gloves, only occasionally wearing a helmet.

Stick to the Sims jimmer you can't destroy them

I hope this is good marketing for Dream Concept and it pays out (and Jimmy gets invited to more stuff like this).

10:56 when you are about to nut XDD

Does the TCR car actually use the standard box? Would have expected a straight cut sequential sort of thing.

No offense but you do it better in the virtual world

I am excited to get my first Team Jimmerz racing jersey and flag when you start racing internationally!

Great job Jimmers! Had me grinning ear to ear the entire vid just thinking how much fun that must've been

Someone give Jimmy a Formula 1

nice day you had there! but, why no gloves?

Would love to collab with you someday

lol "(oh btw i drove a rolls royce ghost)" .. love that ending

So when can we expect you on the grid of the next TCR race?

mate, honestly, i don't know if these captions are brilliant or what, the voice recognition needs work


we need footcam and speedocam for next IRL drive

"just go slow; cruise around, learn the track" * full-throttle banging through the gears

Great video! That looked like a blast. I'm jealous

Driving it like you stole it...nice

Shitnail is no fun when your finger goes through the paper but at least it's your own

10:15 Whats up with the camera moving around? is that the image stabilization from the gopro? i have a hero 7 black and it does something similar for bike riding. Havent used it on a car yet

Nice driving Jimmy, I'm quite jealous of you for getting such awesome experiences! But, the lines of that blonde guy, holy jesus on a bicycle!

I really enjoyed this video. Like the McLaren GT4 vid, you allow loungeroom racers (and keyboard warriors) an insight into driving a real race car. Sure, most of us can throw a 600bhp race car around Brands Hatch - at home, in front of a TV - but you show the physicality of driving a race car for real, even if it's laps around a short handling course. You might regret living and working out of your bedroom/shed, but it's given you access to some amazing experiences. I am grateful you're taking the rest of us along with you. I wish I had race car associations to invite you to be part of. Sadly, all I can do is offer to drive to Mount Panorama (Bathurst), drive some slow real world speed limit (60 km/h) laps, and visit the National Motor Racing museum at the track.

Seeing the passenger side restrains fly forward in a braking zone, hang and then swing out in the turn only to fly straight back once your back on the throttle is oh so satisfying.

hello from Denmark :D

Those Audi's are badass looking cars.

Before that guy even said we're just going to take it nice and easy Jimmy hammers it haha. Never change Jimmy.

Real videos like this go to show why I challenge game developers regarding tyre grip. A lot of titles make you lose grip at stupid low speeds on warm tyres. When cars like these are designed for rediculous grip. Looks like a blast to drive.

Unrelated question: Do you have dummy frame glasses, or is it just a really low distortion profile? I've been living with glasses for the best part of 7 years, and those shadows your glasses cast are not remotely similar to the shadows I'm used to seeing. (positive lenses make a sort of orb-like artifact in the middle, negative lenses on the other hand make the area inside the frame's shadow darker, and a kind of brighter ring around the perimeter)

That Audi tcr couldn't keep up with your pace Jimmer.

I live in Denmark and have never heard of this event! Where in Denmark was this?

This car has probably done thousands of miles and the gearbox needs some service.

This is top gear track

The problem is your not racing on a simulator mate this shit is real

Simracing is unfairly harder and has less grip than real life.......because of this stupid mantra of grip = arcade........ i for one am glad that Jimmy now knows this, just wish more simracers would buy into it.......

Is the wheel/paddle shifters made by Fanatec, I feel your pain that's my experience every time I lap with my McL GT3.

Awesome that you got to do this! I love sim racing, but nothing compares as you stated to getting out and doing it. I can't imagine what it's like to drive a touring car. My driving is always on bikes and you can't push them as much on corners.

That look realy awesome! Can you get me also invate to drive these real racing cars

You've been doing a lot of cool driving recent months! That's awesome.

Why doesn't dodge do a touring car for the challenger or dart

must say thou iam happy for you pal

here i am, looking forward to getting my thrustmaster t300 rs your driving real racing cars am crying here

awesome u lucky swine

that audi is a very nice looking car. very nice

im on the train of thought that the world has become far too safety conscious and common sense should win out against silly safetly laws... but still.. first time driving that race car, on a race track, with a passenger without a seat belt, with the guys job on the line if something happened and you werent wearing a helmet... you really should have just 'cruised'... or at least put a helmet on... i know it wasnt really dangerous per se. but still. it just seems smart to do things by the book in that situation..

ok, i should rally eat some of my own words right there... at 15:20 the guy takes jimmy out for a drive in the car, racing it. pushing it.. and he didnt wear a helmet either :-P i hope his boss doesnt see this and get angry with him...

1:40 .... that RACECAR is FWD???

We have this car in AC.

you re driving the sim with gloves but not driving a real racing car with gloves..

Look at the seatbelts when he’s braking


Please become a touring car driver jimmy

Denmark Denamrk Denmark

@Ty S. It's okay Ty...some things youll never get ;)

@Chris ScarsWhat side of the pond are you talking about lol I've never had an issue

If something does not break, is it really an Audi anymore?

Daniel!? I went to school with him!

''Yeah we'll just cruise around'' 2 mins later 150kph

its a good thing he broke it during testing, not when the team doing races

Thank you!! I love it ❤️

Uses gloves all the time in simracing, literally wears a full racingsuit and be a sweatboi... Get's to drive a real racing car, wears none of it.. Nice.

Amazing jimmy you are getting used to this stuff that was amazing for your first drive.

Usually when something is wrong with the car you don't keep givin her hell

2:05 *NECKBEARD ALERT!* what a glorious neckbeard. Only shedbois can grow a neckbeard like that!! Well done jimmer. Well done..

Your exit power delivery out of corners won’t help that clutch.. I noticed you were aggressive with that. Not saying you caused the issue, just saying you didn’t help it. Easing it on helps the box and clutch to work less harder

lucky git, my dream job from as young as 14 (20 years ago) was to be a BTCC Driver! Man that looked fun. Doesnt seem the same without Xtrak gears though, Id love a go in an older one with the big stick you yank on :D

One thing I’ve noticed about a lot of sim racers is that the car’s exhaust note is usually very quiet from inside the car. In most sum racers, the only thing you can hear from inside the car is gearbox whine.

i would bet your tapping that shifter way to lightly and messing it up , its no light weight sim

11:24 I thought it was Tiametmarduk driving xD

Every time Jimmy says Lasse, I hear Nasa :D

Not your fault mate, there isn't anything to do wrong in these modern cars. They'll have a rev limiter so you can't really over rev it, you have the paddle sequential box so its not like youre clutching on each change and can mess that up and yeah as for riding the brake and the throttle.. thats not going to kill it. Hey when you do the driving, I'd like to see a bit more of over the bonnet and perhaps some data. So a GoPro will automatically take the GPS data and then you can use free packages to put a speedo and even a track map on the video. I have a video I made of when I drove in Aussie Driver Search last year.. if you want to see how I did it, tell me and I'll send you a link

Good on you, Jimmer. Enjoyed this one, mate. The smile on your face when you put the boot in hehehehehe love it mate

Amazing jjmmy watched and enjoyed every second

That joke at 3:12 absolutely killed me

JIMMER IS A FAST BOI M8'S!!!!!!!! :):):)

looked so much fun, i want a go!

That noise is insane...

I really hope you can get the opportunity to drive more cars. I like the way you cut your videos and to see how you evolve yourself. Greetings

Never stop making videos!!! You are my inspiration for everything racing related

The clutch is bad. Let me just drive back in 3rd holding 8000 rpms

wow i dont think ive ever seen a professional racing driver's face while putting the car close to its limits

The swinging of the dicks has began 15:26

Jimmy, that last lap will be deleted for cutting corners
