" QUALIFIED "
In 1977, a 39-year-old aerospace engineer attempted to qualify for the world's most famous race, the Indianapolis 500. In the face of scorn and skepticism, and saddled with subpar equipment, Janet Guthrie shocked the racing world.

It's all larry

Well worth it
Had a look. Imagine blasting up the hill at the South African GP, to be confronted with an unusual accident, keep going, then on the next lap, see the driver's helmet on the side of the track, while the car is a few hundred metres down the road?

Woah!

p.s. Bad luck about the Raiders.

Disappointing, however I’ve never like that track not having the walls at the end like a tradition speedway track.
Just having the mounds of dirt I’ve always felt like drivers know the penalty for making a mistake isn’t that bad.
Very much like large run off areas in F1
