Let's show vintage racing pictures. I'll start.

Nice video. When you watch the section around 1:26 you have to ask yourself who was craziest, the drivers or the public. The car slams into the tree and they don't even flinch. Certainly gives another meaning to diehard fans.

Ever wonder why one of the European car makers has the ignition on the left side of the steering wheel?

 

Le Mons starts.

It's ok. You're allowed to say Porsche here. I have three of those European cars with the ignition on the left!

Racing in the old days required a running start. Upon reaching your car, putting it in first gear at nearly the same time you start the engine ensured a quicker start off the line.

Pretty cool. My friend Brady has gotten me in to iRacing. The better your equipment, the more realistic the experience...

Heaps of pics in the book, little known period of racing outside the US but definately the most definitive indicator of comparative performance. Z cars bang for buck FTW.
