Students, if you will take your seats, we can begin today’s lecture. Thanks to a less than generous stipend from the Hooniversity (due to an over-expenditure of funds on shooter sandwich fixins) , we will forego the scheduled transformation of the commentariat into atomic supermen enslaved to my will alone, and instead continue our viewing of the History of Motor Racing documentary.
This week’s installment covers the years 1919 to 1929. We’ll see Duesenberg’s at Indianapolis and the French Grand Prix, the rise of Bugatti, Harry Seagrave and Malcolm Campbell at Brooklands, the dawn of forced induction, Herr Doktor Porsche with Mercedes-Benz, Antonio Ascari and Enzo Ferrari driving for Alfa Romeo at the Targa Florio, and much, much more.
