Now this is what we are talking about!! I know all us old gits think most things were better "back then" but I think with out doubt, F1 was most certainly more entertaining albeit very, very dangerous.
It's a pity we can't mix the current safety with the entertainment of years gone by.
Good find Howard, most enjoyable
Here for a good time not a long time!!

What a find.
You can see the tension on the drivers faces at the build up to the start.

A nice little nostalgia trip - we forget the attrition rate in those days in amongst the romance of the era just looking at the drivers there brings it back.
That Lotus is still one of the prettiest cars, there is normally one at Goodwood Revival every year to be drooled over.

That Lotus is one of the most stunning racing cars ever built. In the hands of the legendary Jim Clark and Graham Hill superb!

Thank you for the link Howard. That was the time I really started my interest in race cars.

Such a Schuco Lotus 33 was my 9th year birthday gift.
