In-car GT40 from Goodwood Revival

You really do need a monsterous pair of testicles and a hell of a lot of talent to do this

Kenny Brack manhandling Adrian Newey's GT40 around a damp Goodwood during last weekend's Revival meeting.

That looked beyond difficult. I never really thought you can have too much power, but that may be the case.

I retract that statement.

Not too much power, just not enough traction.

traction is always going to be limited by the tire restrictions, and surface. you can have too much power and most cars do in the rain when trying to put it all down and be quick.

Now that guy right there, is a driver. There is a bank job being planed somewhere in the world with his name all over the seat man's role. That is if the guy who drove the yellow bird on the ring in that classic video is unavailable

Lots of power and no traction control = challenge in any weather condition (tire tech was not what it is today either)
