Can a MotoGP champ drive a DTM car?
Posted on: August 11th, 2011

Nicky Hayden is the 2006 MotoGP world champion, suggesting that on two wheels at least, he possesses an immodest level of skill and proficiency.

 

He recently paid a visit to Mercedes-Benz’s DTM team to see if he could transpose these immodest skills into a racing C-Class AMG; an AMG with a very wide track, a very shiny body, a very loud 470bhp V8 and a very low tolerance of failure.

 

David Coulthard was on hand to show him a few laps, and then Nicky was left to discover what an oversteery Merc feels like on full attack mode. You can see how he fared in the video below…
