interesting video about Porsche's 962 car that won LeMans 1987 (with a brief chat with Norbert Singer about downforce)

I refuse to watch any U tube that has an advertisement at the beginning. Time they learned this.

Great video! I watched one recently with the same presenter about Lancia rally cars and enjoyed it just as much as this one...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXgWWNJVdYA

awesome! - I have always been fond of the Delta S4 and that Gp8 ECV prototype thing, well, that is a techno-marvel about 30 years ahead of its time! That's the one with the quirky engine with exhaust ports out each side and intakes on top, amongst a shit-ton of ducting, turbos, supercharges, and who knows what else!

AAAHHH...one of my favorite race cars. Watch the video of Derek Bell.....really driving the 956 FAST...and then he gets passed by Jackie Ickx, who is qualifying.

You can tell this driver is being VERY careful with this zillion dollar car.

Somewhere in the Bert Vorgon archives, I have a tape called Porsche In-Car 956, with Derek Bell, where he drives all the circuits at race speed....

"he's going very fast because he doesn't have a camera in the car"

...as in, if there was no camera slowing me down, things would be different!

Duke, it was a serious treat to wake up this morning and watch Marku Alain and Juha Kakkenen put the various Fiats and Lancia's through their paces.

I did not know that the Malconator had assembled a compilation of that car. There might not be any more new footage of that car, the last time we talked I think he mentioned that the car was retired for good.

You tube "Group B"; you'll likely never watch it all. And unbridled noise like the world of motor sports may never be heard like again. And to switch it up - Rally Cross...

Enough said.... :shock:
