I'm not entirely convinced this is a parody. If you watch the driver he appears to be "trying" really hard.

Well covered here:

https://rennlist.com/forums/991-gt3/...-one-here.html

It's funny/scarey/sad all at the same time.

Passenger is just that, not an Instructor.

They were asked to leave after this session.

Honking horns and all, this is an example of inexperience and ego and money in a dangerous mix.

Absolutely. He starts to lean forward and develops a shrug as he keeps adding steering to counteract for the understeer. Also, the guy in the right seat is laughing and having a good time, even when the guy takes a couple of shortcuts through what I think is the pit entrance, past open ended concrete walls before going onto the banking. You can tell when someone is playing a 'bad student' because they still have mechanical sympathy and situational awareness, but these guys show neither.

That thread is great!
As I could not sit through the whole thing, I had missed the part at 6:14 where he screams "eat a f*kn d*ck bitch, I'm flat out like a MF."

Reminds me a little bit of the Night Rider in Mad Max.

Not fair. The boy may have some anger management issues but he can drive the bleep out of a cup. 1:41 in a 7 cup at ACS....

Was this shot at the Cloud City Race Track? Was that Lando Calrissian driving the GT3?

I've seen amateur **** shot with an iPhone have better clarity than this video!

+1 to whoever said something about it being the norm with the Corvette demographic.

Saw a group of people at the Vette stand at the car show a couple of years ago when the ZR1 50th Anniversary or whatever made its appearance. Guy with a group of his friends were admiring the car when they got into the dreaded lap times/performance talk just as I showed up. 4.0 RS comes up and this one guy literally builds up to yelling at his supposed friend about how much better the ZR1 is, and I quote, "because it just is!!" when asked how , "it could possibly be so much faster" as this fanboy claimed over the 4.0 RS that his friend mentioned.. It turned into this ugly scene where people started looking over. Felt really embarrassed for everyone there including the sales rep. Funny enough too, recognized that same yahoo at our local Porsche Centre C&C recently too talking about, you guessed it, the ZR1..

I could go on about my friend's neighbour too who just got a ZR1 but you all get the point already. Have yet to see a humble enthusiast from the Vette crowd. Hope I'm proven wrong someday.

It was an Empire Strikes Back reference.

If you are talking about bad ****, well, uh, a friend sent me a disgusting link once. It wasn't me.

From 6:42 to 7:15 in the video, I think the driver actually demonstrates the opposite of ALL lessons you would learn in a classroom and first 8-10 days of track driving. It's impressive. You can also hear that they have the radio on... I am not surprised.
