MERC-AMG ON SNOW

FOL­LOW THESE SIM­PLE STEPS TO ACHIEVE SUC­CESS. (OR JUST PLANT IT, SPIN AND SMILE .)

ONE

En­ter the cor­ner slower than you’d think – about 30 to 40km/h on tighter cor­ners and up to 60km/h on a wide sweeper. It’s still slip­pery out here.

TWO

Turn the wheel slightly and prod the ac­cel­er­a­tor, pre­par­ing to counter-steer as soon as the tail whips out.

THREE

Come off the power as the back end swings out and steer gen­tly into the slide.

FOUR

Look at where you want to go – your hands will fol­low your vi­sion.

FIVE

Keep the rear end out by feath­er­ing the throt­tle, keep­ing small steer­ing lock into the slide.
