    Proper racing in proper race cars, full on drifts, opposite lock. We see glimpses of this now, but nothing like the good old days.
    Just watching this stuff made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

    From the time that you could literally touch the drivers! Truly one of the most heroic seasons of Formula 1.

    Love that Dr Seuss quote as well, will write that one down.

    Can watch that duel many times without getting bored. I wish i could catch those times.
    Also this "Retro Friday" idea is great! Looking forward to and thank you very much Tristan! :)

    GREAT post!!! I had no idea of this epic battle. Keep'em coming.
    P.S. That track looks awesome, I love lots of elevation change.
