Ok fellas… I just about have all of this Grand Prix content material out of my system for now, but prior to I shut down the Briggs Cunningham collection, I figured it might be interesting to aspect the films that form of impressed my fall down the rabbit hole. A number of decades in the past, the Peterson Automotive Museum teamed up with Alex Xydias and collectively they designed a type of historical documentary on the 1958 12-Hours Of Sebring:
Fairly rad, suitable? Something about observing Alex dote on a Testarossa makes me smile. But wait… There’s far more!
The other footage that I definitely fell in really like with was a Sebring Assessment from 1960. In this race, you can observe the early stages of the Ford Vs Ferrari war, Cunningham Corvettes, and just about every little thing else American Road Racing had to supply in 1960. It is merely wonderful to see these cars and trucks racing side by facet and get a truly feel for their genuine scale equally in sizing and speed.
But my most loved part? Has to be the audio… Multiple course racing is the greatest way to listen to a race car and this footage does not disappoint. Love:
