Mercedes-AMG F1 Safety Cars Caught Playing On Track

Emmanuel P September 19, 2011

Often enough, we see the silver cars of F1’s safety and medical teams going around the track whenever a race incident occurs. Long a mainstay of Formula 1, Mercedes’s AMG cars are a sight as familiar as the pit crews of the various teams. But that’s just about all we see, glimpses of F1’s safety and medical cars.

Now, the Mercedes-AMG support cars are given center stage in this video. On it, we see the C63 AMG estate that’s used as the medical car and the SLS AMG safety taking to the track at speed. And on this rare occasion, we not only get to see but hear them as well. And hearing them this way is a bit unnerving, because they sound like race cars, instead of the smooth, purring machines that we are more accustomed to when we see them on the street. If these loud exhausts are overwhelmed by the shriek of F1 cars on the telly, imagine how loud they are in real life!
