Watch Shmee Gush About Driving a Mercedes CLK GTR Alongside a McLaren F1, Porsche 993 GT1, and Others

A Momentus Event

In this video put together by VINwiki, YouTuber Shmee discusses the time he randomly got to drive the Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR alongside five other insane supercars, two of which were the McLaren F1 and the Porsche 993 GT1. He tells an interesting story about how he flew into Bahrain to attend an event at the Bahrain International Circuit.

He’d originally flown to the Middle East to go to a Lamborghini event and then to see some car collections in the area. He did those things and then had the opportunity to go back to Bahrain to partake in another event. So, he wrangled together some flights to get him there. 

Once there, the owners of the cars were going to do a parade lap of the circuit for some photography and video shoots, he was asked if he’d like to drive one of the six cars that would be in the lap. Of course, he said yes, and after some discussion ended up in the Mercedes CLK GTR. 

Before the lap was over, most of the cars decided to go out for one more lap when they weren’t supposed to. Speeds climbed and it sounded absolutely amazing. Watch the video below to see Shmee tell the story himself.
