How to overtake like a champ

By Faiming_low on 15 Oct 2015 in Videos

Attached Image Like tracking and reckon you can overtake like a boss? Well, for those who want to but aren't sure, we have the right video for you. Motor Trend's Randy Pobst will show you how to make a pass like a pro in the following video.

With the help of a Porsche 911 GT3 and a BMW M4 as props, he goes through three of the most common ways of passing the slower car on track. These are namely, 'The drive-by' which basically means using your car's ample horses to overtake, 'Drafting' which uses the slower car's slipstream to gain speed and 'The Braking Zone' which requires you to brake later than your rival when diving into the corner.

We wouldn't recommend the fourth method though as passing on the outside is pretty risky. Watch for yourself to see what we mean!
