in the days of 'reel' Formula One -
on 7 July 2012
Formula One in 1973 was a year of triumph and tragedy, we saw how Colin Chapman's creation, the iconic Lotus 72, win but lose - with circuits that were so dangerous and so exciting, just wished they'd been a little less fatal and will put these ultra-modern circuits into their true perspective, think some of the more modern circuits and the boredom-fest to what you will see on this DVD- if you are not familiar with 'real' circuits and spectacular action then watch this DVD
the ending is poignant and if you are a fan of Motor racing you will know how many others are no longer with us - if you are not a fan, watch this DVD and you will be - the sheer spectacle is breathtaking, the sound, the splendor the vulnerability but also its ruthlessness - especially Chapman, genius maybe, awe-inspiring definitely- go for a pint, no, but such was his genius he'd have probably re-designed the hand-pumps to increase efficiency and lower the weight, would go better but not necessarily as reliably.
funny enough or hopefully you've gathered that I would recommend this DVD to not only us enthusiasts of old but to the modern armchair fan with his x-box thingy and maybe that will help you understand a bit more
