Hilarious Proof That Being A Race Car Driver Is Hard

You ever look at a race car driver's neck and wonder why they're usually so thick? Watch this video of a woman trying to keep her head in one place while being battered around the Abu Dhabi Yas Marina track in a two-seat Formula One car. Whiplash!

This is all part of the "F1 Experience" wherein a trained driver takes you around at not-quite-full speed so you an appreciate the speed and, more importantly, the G-forces of racing. The biggest problem here may be the lack of proper harness tightening, but it's highly instructive if not also a little painful.


Credit to the woman for toughing it out.
