The bus takes to the famous track.
An opportunity to take the bus to its limits on the race track and experience just what it is capable of first-hand. When Mercedes-Benz went looking for Germany’s best bus drivers for its campaign ‘In search of tough guys’, an idea very soon became reality. For the ten strongest contenders, it is nearly time to fulfil their dreams on the Hockenheim circuit in south-west Germany. Instructor and OMNIplus driver trainer Uwe Beyer takes the wheel in the Travego Edition 1 for three laps to challenge the laws of physics on the hallowed asphalt. Manoeuvring with and without ESP®, emergency stops from 100 km/h: this staggering display of the bus’s capabilities is enough to bring even the seasoned professional drivers out in a sweat.
Later, they'll have the pleasure of pushing the Travego to its limits too. But first, these hand-picked drivers have a few other tasks to complete at the Hockenheim driving safety centre.
