Have you ever wondered what it's like to take one of the fastest race cars in America on to one of America's greatest tracks? Wonder no more thanks to our friends at /DRIVE, who bring you this bonkers helmet-camera video of Jordan Taylor testing at Watkins Glen.

Turn on your computer's HD transmogrifier, put in a good set of headphones in your ear holes, dim the lights, and enjoy. Also, if you're prone to motion sickness, I wouldn't recommend watching this.

Great mullet possessor, and race car driver Jordan Taylor strapped on a helmet camera for some testing laps at The Glen and us lucky viewers get an eye-opening 1st-person view. You don't get a sense of how hard the drivers are working watching TV broadcasts of races, but this point-of-view look shows how much Taylor has to muscle the car around the corners. I can't imagine how exhausting it would be to do that for 2-3 hours at a stretch.


It's a pretty insane look into the world of racing, and Taylor drives like he stole the car.


Thankfully, the guys at /DRIVE didn't edit this video too heavily, or add any unnecessary music to diminish the bark of the 5.0 Liter V8. I don't know about you guys, but I'm loving this wave of 1st Person driving videos that have been coming to us via the YouTubes. Just don't start making race car noises at your desk, like I did
