About YouTube Gold
In this returning series we highlight a YouTube video we love. It can be recent, it can be older than the internet itself, but it's definitely worth the watch. It can be a documentary, a short clip, a feature of a car or an onboard around a track. It can be a very expensive production but also a very simple production. Sometimes a dashcam video leaves a bigger impression than a Hollywood production. Either way, what we post in this series is worth your attention in our mind. It's in our favorites and we think it might just make it to your favorites too.
To make it easy, we collect all our YouTube Gold featured videos in a public playlist on our channel. Go check it out, and while you're there: give our channel a follow and, if you please, set the alerts for new videos. We'll be posting stuff there you will not want to miss.
In this video you're looking over the right shoulder of Roman Caresani. He's a Dutch entrepreneur who's said to be one of the founders of the Dutch Historic Grand Prix at Zandvoort. But what we do know? We know we love his driving around the circuit of Spa Francorchamps.
The description on YouTube mentions the car we're in is a 1965 Porsche 911. It's obviously a well prepared example and it's obviously being driven hard. Just the way we like it. Caresani seems to be going sideways whenever he can, but is actually faster than most other cars on track while doing so. It's mesmerizing to watch and we think you'll love it as much as we do. This eight year old video has been in our favorites for years.
Oh, by the way: if (like us) you're wondering what Eau Rouge sideways looked like from the outside, click the link in the description of the video. You can thank us later, no problem.
