Outstanding video!! I for one, appreciate the time you took to create this video and post it for all of us to see.

You have much more faith in the drivers in Germany than I have here in the US, I would be very uncomfortable driving 200mph and passing cars in the the #2 lane with that much speed differential.

You seem to be a ghost rider. Watch the vid @ 50 secs down the row and you will see one car vanish into thin air while another one appears out of nowhere. Nice touch but how did you do that?

Thanks everyone!

Notice how the drivers of slower cars actually move out of my way without me having to make a fuss. Germans know how to drive. They spend a lot of money to get licensed and know the rules.

I am EXTREMELY relaxed while driving here in Germany. People don't tend to "come from nowhere" like they do in the states. Nearly all drivers use their turn-signals here and opposed to the states, if you use your turn signal, most drivers are curteous enough to let you in and not race to cut you off. It really wasn't all that big of a deal to drive that fast with an open road like that.

I wish some of that could be applied to drivers here in SA, we must have amongst the world's worst drivers on our roads. Driving around here is something akin to a nightmare!
