not sure if that has been posted before but worth watching again, the safety cone is a classic

Thanks Hendrik for the link. What a great video! After watching it my boys decided that a 190E would be a cool first car after all, especially if made to look (and go) like those ones! In fact, eldest son said he wants a track car to have fun with.

I notice this Youtube poster has this video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gw-AxiVqihM and for C-Class enthusiasts has posted Part 2 at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCS7CBcHxtA and the CLK enthusiasts will enjoy Part 3 at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHMkiLOaBgY . Part 1 with the 190E is still my favourite and, judging by the number of views, the favourite for many others too.

Wow! Sparks fly! Thanks for that Hendrik! Good viewing!

Might have to keep my eyes peeled for a manual 190E now! :laughing5:

Damn! that is awesome.

So much better than the taxi racing that we get here, now.

So many great tracks, too.
