Formula 1: Those we've lost - Part Two
The second half of my F1 tribute. I did it in two parts because I didn't want it to be so long that people wouldn't want to watch it... I notice some people keep commenting that I've missed people out. It wasn't my intention, I tried to do a lot of research. In the future, I will make another video and include those you have mentioned in the comments. Hope it does them some justice... They died doing what they loved, but still didn't deserve such a tragic end. I've included Van Vuuren and Hein in this, as their deaths were just as awful as those of the drivers... The end picture doesn't include them as I couldn't find images of them alive... :( The song is 'Sad Trio' by Kevin Macleod: http://incompetech.com/





Ex-Roger Penske / Mark Donohue Can Am Porsche 917-30 S/N 004 starts up and drives away
Watkins Glen International offically opened on Sunday, April 26, 2009. In conjunction with the release of Michael Argetsinger's Mark Donohue biography, "Mark Donohue Technical Excellence at Speed" a number of restored Donohue race cars were present. As were Team Penske members, past and present, members of the Donohue family, childhood friends, etc. At one point it was time to start up the 917-30 and drive back to the transporter. I saw Mark Donohue win the 1973 Watkins Glen Can Am in one of these cars. Be sure to visit Paul Powell's website http://www.unfairadvantageracing.com/
