Incredible driving in an incredible car, that GT40 has had a rather large sum spent on it by Adrian Newey to get it up the front of the historic fields.

Like driving a Micra down to the shops...

Impressive driving to tame that car - it doesn't look a naturally "good handling" car.

Jeeeeez, that looks like a reet handful! I've never seen anyone have to fight a car like that before; it even steps sideways on a trailing throttle. Although I don't think the true pace at which he'd driving really comes over on the film...

How much torque!!!?

Historic-patterned tyres + rain = tricky. They're not modern compound/tread, but something designed many years ago (and possibly cross-ply as well!)
