I did a testing session at the old oval at Monza with the 63' Roadster just for fun and the first thing I actually said out loud was "Jesus....these guys were f#@$ing nuts"

I am pretty convinced now that the guys who drove those cars in real life were missing the section of our brains that processes fear.

No doubt. That banking at Monza is terrifying. Anyone who drove that track with those old style cars are legends in my mind.

*edit* Just had a look at that clip...dear god, the suspension travel! :eek-new:

If you ever get the opportunity to drive that Watson roadster in VR then do it. It's one of the meatiest beasties ever made and that slightly odd driving view makes perfect sense in VR. It is actually pretty agile on non oval tracks too like Rouen etc.
