Pic of the Week: Madness in a Mercedes CLK GTR

Today's POTW is a bit of a mystery. Granted, it's quite clearly a Mercedes CLK GTR road car, but the who, when, where and why of it is beyond us.

All we know is that it was quietly dropped onto our desk in transparency form by Classic & Sports Car mag's super-sub David Evans, who (quite rightly) thought it might be our sort of thing.

There is a smudged 'copyright Autocar' on the plastic surround, so we can assume it has something to do with them, but beyond that we know very little about it.

Other than the fact that the driver (who we think is on track at Hockenheim) is either massively brave or massively talented to perform such showboating. Or both.

    Kudos to you chaps - lovely picture and love the new formats too.

    Riggers, go find archived copy of Autocar dated 1st July 1998. I'm hoping therein will lie your answer.

    ..seconds later it was airborne and into the trees.

    Oh no that was Le Mans, sorry.
