That makes an absolutely fantastic noise...
...I'm not kidding when I say I just paused Berlioz Les Troyens to hear it stretch its legs down the straights.
A real pity about the off and the early finish but the car seemed pretty quick before the problems started. I'm guessing those 156s that pulled away down the straights were all V6 powered? The 156 with the green rear that pulled past early on seemed to be a lot closer in the corners and only got to pull away on the straights, being much closer in the corners.
A real shame about the DNF, was the gearbox trouble related to the off or vice versa? The car seemed really strong until the problems started. Either way, excellent video, the camera angle really shows how hard the drivers have to work in a race car, something that isn't always obvious from outside.
