The Youtube algorithm threw up this delight today. I don't know if it's been posted before (I don't think so). Some wonderful shots, and a few things I've either never seen or simply never noticed before - Moss's spare goggles on the back of his neck, clear shot of the Lancia's oblique engine mount, and of course the "OMG That's Dangerous!" nature of the track. Imagine sitting at a table at a cafe, watching F1 cars roar past only a few feet away...with no barriers!

Yes, that YT video was very helpful when I was making the '55 Belgian GP carset.
Also, very much instrumental in all of the '55 conversion textures that were made to the spa67 track.

It is always great to re-watch it over and over again.  :)

I thought as I watched it that the 55mod team must have seen it (awesome job, btw), but I couldn't see it posted anywhere.

One of the things I love about the GPL community is the dedication to preserving the history of racing. From the modders attention to detail, to the sharing of historical sources and info, to those glorious maps that Ozpata makes, it all makes me a very happy nerd!
