A Moment of Awesomeness.

If Pedro Rodriguez and Jo Siffert were given team orders at the start of the 1970 1000 Km of Spa, they certainly paid no attention.

The race was won by Siffert and Brian Redman with an average speed over 71 laps of 149.415 mph but Rodriguez turned a race lap at 160.513 mph. On the same track, that was 14 seconds faster than the fastest Formula 1 lap that year and 3 seconds faster than his own pole position! Awesome.

A longer clip after the jump.

  1. Two 917's wide into Eau Rouge definitely takes some serious stones.
