Sitting in the garden the other day, beer in hand, reading the latest MOTOR SPORT with the Parting Shot of Ronnie Peterson in the Lotus 72, I started dreaming: Lord March invites three retired Racing Drivers to his Goodwood Festival of Speed
1) Ronnie, on full opposite lock on each bend drifting to the outside using up all the tarmac.
2) Ayrton Senna, in total control of the car with 1000bhp of Honda turbo screaming behind him.
3) Giles Villeneuve, Ferrari flat-12 at 12,000 rpm, using all the track, run off area and probably the grandstands to help as well, with the rear tyre hanging off.. And underneath the helmet, his face grinning from car to car.
To cap it all, being at the top listening to them all saying “better try harder next time”. Oh well, I better stop dreaming and have a few more beers. Keep up the good work.
