Here's some more glorious racket, where cars come down a long straight and go under a Johnsonville Brats bridge, presumably discovered by Colonel Stonewall Johnsonville and his Bratwurst. This was the Friday of the race weekend, so the teams were all doing practice runs in the morning, with qualifying in the afternoon.
This was the first MGB GT I've seen in the flesh. It's one more reason that there's no excuse for so many current cars to look so awful. It's not like we don't know how to get it right.
|This is a 1969 Lotus formula B. Like pretty much any Lotus you come across, it's very very pretty. Those wheels are really cool.|
|Another eye-wateringly pretty lotus.|
|I forgot to look what this is, but the colors are nice a weird. Pea green with gold wheels. I think the car is some kind of Austin-Healey or something.|
|Stainless suspension and drive shaft components usually indicate a car from the Sixties or early Seventies. Much later than that, and these shiny stainless parts would be black anodized aluminum. Later still, and they'd just be carbon fiber.|
|No one was freaking out about this, so, apparently it was not catastrophic.|
|It kind of looks like a Formula Vee, but since the engine is clearly not from a Beetle, it's probably a Formula Ford.|
|Never heard of Bandini before. It looks like it's from The Fifties or very early Sixties and all cars were sausage shaped.|
|Don't know, but nice colors.|
