Mercedes-AMG GT4 racer: ten things you need to know

It’s a *customer* racing car

That’s people like you and I. Hamilton, Bottas and the likes wouldn’t be bothered messing about at this level, but for those of us wanting to go racing, on a sensible budget (relatively speaking here) the Mercedes-AMG GT4 is the perfect solution. Just buy a fireproof romper suit. Hire a hot-shoe pro to share driving duties with. Get a team to help you out. Um, simple, right? Just remember to stick your company’s stickers all over it and write all your weekend door-banging off as a ‘business expense’. Oh, and work off that belly. Nobody looks good in a racing suit with a paunch, even if you’re signing the cheques.
