Re: The G Class Experience Graz-Austria

Very impressive and good that you can book onto it.

But is the Schockl an example of a course engineered for all the specifications of a G?  Do Jeep/LandRover have an equivalent course?  Does the electronics in a new G have a 'Schockl' detector :)  Like VW had emission testing detection!

Personally I like the simpler challenges that the G makes look easier than the rest.

but... but... the G got overtaken (over flown) by a one wheel drive!   

Actually, that was bonkers driving.  Good promo reel though.

Re: The G Class Experience Graz-Austria

There is another great video of a Mercedes/Steyr test driver doing an amazingly fast descent of the Schockl that shows just how much punishment a G can take. It is an older video and it used to be on this site somewher but I can't find it. Can anyone post a link ?
