Driving an exotic car is far different from how you drive your car on the road everyday. In order to properly handle the higher speeds and more aggressive turns that you’ll experience on a racetrack, how you sit and grip the steering wheel is different as well. Here are a few tips for how to properly steer an exotic car for maximum performance.
When driving a high-performance exotic car like the Audi R8 or Mercedes AMG GT-S, your seating position and distance from the steering wheel will differ from how you may normally drive. It is recommended that you sit in a way that you are able to comfortably rest your wrists on the top of the steering wheel while keeping your arms slightly bended. This may be much closer than you are used to driving, but this is no leisurely drive through the park after all. This seating position will give you maximum control over the supercar you control.
When steering through a corner, you want to be turning the wheel in a smooth, controlled motion. If you picture the steering wheel as a clock, you would ideally want to keep your hands positioned at nine and three, giving you the maximum level of control over the vehicle. Obviously, for sharper turns, your hand position will have to adjust accordingly, but keeping your hands at nine and three as much as possible, especially through turns that are not as sharp will let you know exactly what position to return the steering wheel to set it straight again.
