Most motor racing folk look back to their favourite eras from time to time because we have brains that store memories. Like all 'disciplines' motor sport, in all its forms, has gone through highs and lows, but even during troughs, we can often reflect on something that has been stored in our minds with affection.
As usual your views and images will always be of great interest. And thanks.
I enjoyed several laps of the Mess 'smorn with a 917KH while Mrs Grumpy was mumbling something incomprehensible about - dunno, I wasn't listening - and it's rather put me in a 917 frame of mind. Our weekly slot meeting this evening so, a propos of nothing in particular, a few ol' daubings ahead of today's named storm.
I must say that I very much like the latter two tracks, but Angouleme is licensed for a maximum 120 mph speed and Pau for 140 mph so this limits the cars that can be raced there.
There was no such limit at Pescara where Fangio in a 159 Alfa Romeo was timed at 192 mph! This is on a cambered public road with trees kerbs and houses on each side and no special surface in a 1950 technology car. It's bum clenching just to think about.
