Feel like an F1 driver with RT 360 video of Sochi Autodrom

Feel like an F1 driver with RT 360 video of Sochi Autodrom

The immersive 360-degree video filmed by RT from inside a racecar allows you to find yourself behind the wheel at the amazing track located in the heart of Sochi's Olympic park.

With the 360-degree footage available, you might be even luckier than the actual driver, as it offers you a proper look at all the beautiful structures that hosted the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia without having to keep your eyes on the road.

The average speed on the 18-turn track is 215 kph (133 mph), while the max is up to 334 kph (207 mph).

The Sochi Autodrom, the most up-to-date racing complex in Eastern Europe and the only one in Russia that hosts the Formula One Grand Prix, has two circuit configurations. The circuit that runs across the Olympic structures is only used for the Formula One race weekends, but with RT 360 video you can experience it on a Thursday, too.

The lap time for the 3.64-mile (5853.7-meters) track is 96.9 seconds. But with RT’s 360-degree camera inside, this driver got to the finish line in 91.6!
