Champion Frank Biela Reads the Paper at 189 mphDecember 10th, 2014
Audi brought Audi driver and five time champion at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Frank Biela, to the Hockenheimring to sit back and relax in the passenger seat as the world’s fastest self-driving vehicle, the Audi RS7, took him for a spin on the track. While Biela expresses his displeasure with the role of passenger rather than driver, he seems to settle in nicely, even pulling out the paper while the RS7 takes him around the track at speeds up to 189.5 mph.
Of course, the driverless RS7 successfully navigated the Hockenheimring just recently resulting in its being crowned the world’s fastest self-driving car. I guess if you’re going to be taken around a track in the passenger seat, you might as well do it in style. On the other hand, I doubt Biela picked up any tips on the ‘ring’s racing line from the RS7.
