I know this is an old race, but it's nice to see the older track layout. Amazing driving, but over-driving, also, at times. Good stuff.
Why did they rip up this Tarmac? one of my favourite circuits and it's gone forever now :(
They did it mainly for safety concerns I believe. If you crashed in the back it took a long while for an Ambulance or medic car to get back there. I never understood why they didn't just use the money from redesigning the track to just build another post in the back for a safety car heli pad and ambulance. One on each end of the circuit. That would have made it plenty safe (in response time terms).
I imagine that considering most of the old track had no grandstands, it was not a good value for the spectators. I do miss that one downhill chicane though.
Alzen was stark raving mad!That is how you man-handle air cooled 911s!
