Now THIS is the type of stuff that makes us love the internet. You are about to watch a video from Goodwood that shows off a special race that they had packed with historic low-drag LeMans specials. Cars from all different eras that share one thing, the sexy looks that came to define their generation of racing. Long, low, and dramatic, these cars were the romper stomper Mulsanne Straight gobbling hot rods of their time.
The neatest part about this is that we hear the announcers (who are awesome) giving loads of backstory and history about the cars and their successes. Even the people who built and designed the cars are talked about, giving yet another dimension of interest to this already visually stunning presentation.
Hell, when a Ferrari F40 is the pace vehicle and the most boring thing on the track, you know that you’re in for something special!! Press play and enjoy this race, history lesson, and visual buffet of automotive greatness. I had designs of racing prototype cars as a kid from the comfort of my carpet. They still fascinate me.
