Last Call: Some Japanese Grand Prix for you

Seeing this video reminded me of how great racing used to be. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love modern racing, but it’s hard to beat watching Ayrton Senna manually shift through this GP lap. Everything was so raw and I feel like the driver made much more of a difference compared to the car. Plus, it looks like there isn’t a pit speed limit here which is kind of crazy. And as we slowly move into an age of electricity, I know we will forever look back at clips of F1 V6 and V10 engines smacking the rev limiter. I hope the day we do move to fully electric racing is far away from now.

Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, but it’s also encouraged.

    I haven’t watched F1 in 20 years, but this shaky, screaming noise sure brought back good memories. Also, a solid nostalgia for an analog world that neither is no more nor was it any better than what we have today. Just an illusion of skilled craftsmanship yet simpler times.
