Vintage Racing - 1950s Indy Cars startup and race. LOUD!!!
Chris Ashworth records a series of 1950s Indy Cars at Michigan
International Speedway. This was a vintage racing event that was associated
with the Concours d'elegance of America, where these cars were on display
after this event.
This event was incredible! I got to wander in the pits and the garage area.
You will hear these cars starting up right from the tailpipes, and you will
see them driving on the track from the pits.

Group C 1100BHP Pole Position Lap 1990 Le Mans - Blundell Nissan R90CK
Blundell on his lap - "Every input was pure reflex -- things were coming at
me everywhere I looked. For about 50 percent of the lap I felt like I was
on the verge of a massive accident." -- Absolutely amazing story
Does Blundell write for any magazines? If he doesn't, he should. In EVO
Magazine issue 157 he writes about his experience at Le Mans in 1990 with
the Nissan R90CK which was a V8 and twin turbocharged and made over what 1,100bhp!
He establishes his route to Le Mans that year and gave a real sense of what
that week was like for him and the Nissan team and when everything seemed
to be going wrong.

Porsche 917/30 In Car Daytona Rennsport 2007
This is in-car footage from the second lap of the big race (best race of
the weekend) at Rennsport Reunion III. My dad is behind the wheel of the
917-30, hope you guys enjoy! The audio is pretty bad, but if you listen
carefully you can hear the car missing and crapping out. If it had been
running right, it would have been a much different race...
