Yes brilliant Alan. Cheers πŸ˜πŸ‘

Makes you think and cringe with the archaic recording equipment used, compared with today.

Along with the lack of health and safety concerns, with Mike driving whilst the public are on the road on their bikes and in their cars. Going about there daily business oblivious πŸ˜‚ Wouldn't see that today πŸ˜ πŸ€”

I've been racing this classic track layout in the same car on Project Cars 2 πŸ˜πŸ‘

TP: 🏁

He is in a road legal car going at normal speeds I dont see why he cant drive on what is a public road with other vehicles. Driving the current prototypes on public roads would be a bit trickier but with GTs that still works.

Know what your saying Michkov. That was okay for that time. But playing devil's advocate, all I was saying that today I don't think it would be tolerated because of all the stringent health & safety.

Just look for example today in Formula 1. If even a race Marshall drops his/her sandwich box, they are calling for the safety car or virtual safety car πŸ€”πŸ€­
