I know this is not a new clip and its just been linked in the nostalgia forum but I make no apologies for linking this on a forum about racing car design

Were there ever two more wonderful looking cars ( except maybe the 72 and 79!).

Its really nice to see Franchetti's respect for his sport's history

Thanks very much. It was well worth seeing again. Evergreen, really.


Dario is quite the student of the sport, Clark in particular. When he first came to CART Dario drove for Carl Hogan, who was also keen on racing lore. But soon they got sideways with each other and Hogan parked him. Asked where was his driver that weekend, Carl replied, "Dario Resta."
