Yup. There’s a rap about Dario Franchitti.
Watched some clips of the new Indycars testing at Sebring. Just about threw up in my mouth. Indycars are over and done with as far as I’m concerned. A look back to when CART held it’s own with F1. TV commercial style.
Touching 275mph down the backstretch? Ain’t no thang. 2.65L Honda (Special one-off qualifying spec) V8 Turbo…HNNNNNNNGGGG
Everyone knows the last 500 was run in 1995. Added the end of the Michigan 500 and highlights for the Cleveland Grandprix of that year for your viewing pleasure.
Back when CART mattered. There was a guy named Juan Pablo Montoya ripping it up. This is his pole lap from the 1999 Detroit GP aka “The Lap”. No power steering, no ABS, no traction control, and 850hp+ 2.65L turbos.
