I have seen this before, but I still love it. Just pause the video and look at the car, the suspension, the gearbox at the back, it's as amazing as it is beautiful.  The poor guy at the back gets a good blast of gas and exhaust. I think I'd pay for that.
This brings back memories of being in the paddock at the Glen in 67 through 72. In the garage and hearing,seeing, feeling the cars. I just wish I'd had a camera with me.

indeed ZZ!  my mem's are from Indy of course - in '67 standing outside the garages, and hearing Foyts' v8... VwuupPA... VwuupPA.... glorious~
then standing right next to the Lotus Turbine (wedge in '68)  and i was right at the left front tire... like a vacuum .. and i thought, 'oh this isn't so bad'... but it kept whinning up... and i thought 'oh, this is getting painful'... finally i had to put my hands over my ears as i thought a spike was being driven thru my head!
the v8's were much prettier :)
like a loud hug!

I thought this one is pretty good with Coultard driving Clark's Lotus 25. Coultard's comments at the end explain why F1 today sucks - the cars have no feel.

I love Coultards comment, "It's like living with it".

Wow, that's good. Fangio saying that Clark was the best. Just wow. :)

"You have to drive it with a very light touch" Jim Clark was an expert to keep the momentum going.
"He used less rubber, less brake pads and less fuel to win the race"
Jim Clark was the best! The footage gave me goosebumps.
