1905 Racing

How does drifting 18 litre cars with cart wheels over dirt tracks sound? Pretty damned awesome I think. Watching the French drinking wine straight of of the bottle over lunch, before climbing back into their cars and carrying on racing is a treat, as is watching the poor bastards having to change a tire on a wheel that’s permanently fixed to the car. I don’t know about you but I’d give all the money I have to go back for a day and race with these guys.
