Certainly, if I could dance like the former Fred Astaire, and if I had a fraction of this talented driver's skill. Simply amazing. w/ smiles Jimmy

THAT is a guy worth paying money to receive driving instruction from. They did a couple videos of him with his former Subaru that are pretty amazing as well.

I'd say those tires are out of warranty . . .

I am pleasantly surprised to see that the Montlhery track is still being used. It was the track that our Mondial had its first race on in May 1955, the GP of Paris - back when the drivers had real courage since there was no guardrail at the top of that bank.

After the track was no longer used for racing. it was Michelin's test track, but they stopped using and maintaining it. The rumor a couple of years ago was that it was slated for demolition - complaining neighbors . . . .

Cool bit about the Mondial Bryan. I'd hope someone stepped in to preserve it much like Mont Tremblant of Lime Rock Park...as a young guy it's disappointing to see these historical race tracks be forgotten.

Video tape your drive and post. That should be quite a feat in the Scuderia
