Always wanted to be a race car driver? This footage, taken from the helmet camera of Jordan Taylor in the #73 Corvette Racing ZR1, is a great representation of exactly what it would be like to pilot a Le Mans racer. 

The video shows Taylor lapping the track during night time testing. Running in the dark adds its own set of challenges, and a beforehand knowledge of the course is crucial for staying competitive in the dark.

Helping to complete the race experience offered by the video is the exhaust sound of the Corvette ZR1, as well as the visibility of the shift lights and gear selection screen, giving the viewer a great sense of exactly what Taylor is doing.
