GP- I always pooh-pooh NASCAR drivers because they "don't turn right," but one thing is true: they have nerves of steel to drive inches from each other at speed. @William Dunlop-motorcycle racers are definitely a breed apart. Iron "appendages" for sure!
Re: Le Mans '55... It made me appreciate how courageous one had to be "in the day" to climb into the driver's seat of machines that were, at best, only slightly fatal on a good day. The safety features of today's cars make us believe that one could survive almost anything. Watching Mark Webber flip his Merc and come out unscathed...just WOW.
