Kim Dotcom and Kimi Raikkonen on the Nurburgring in CLK DTMs

You are probably all familiar with Kim Dotcom both due to his scandal and his passion for cars and racing in general. It appears that before he got arrested, he made a ‘Nordschleife’ tribute video which featured three Mercedes-Benz CLK DTMs (all Kim Dotcom’s property) which were raced over a series of 20 laps in order for the 30 cameras, more than 100 crew members, 2 helicopters and 1 fixed-wing aircraft to capture the necessary footage.
There appears to be an extended, final cut version of the video which unfortunately was seized by the FBI along with all his assests and it will be uploaded once he recovers it.

Driving the Mercs were Kim Dotcom himself, Formula 1 driver Kimi Raikkonen and Kim’s business partner Finn Batato. Kim says that he got the inspiration for this video from playing racing games on his Xbox and he wanted to recreate the perfect ‘replay’ of the ideal lap around the Ring.
