YEAR: 1977 // TRACK: IMOLA // HERDING CATS AT THE START OF AN­OTHER GRAND PRIX FROM THE GOLDEN ERA

Classic Racer - - WHAT’SINSIDE -

Three mo­ments from rac­ing his­tory de­serv­ing of your time, to take in fully and ap­pre­ci­ate. Big im­ages early on – what CR is about.

We might be used to the mod­ern pol­ished pre-race per­for­mances of Dorna and its em­ploy­ees, but back in the day there was noth­ing quite as well drilled in GP rac­ing.you knew what time you had to be ready to get out on the grid and then, well, you just kind of went out on to the track and got into po­si­tion. A fine time for fans and as­sorted hang­ers-on to get a last minute photo, au­to­graph or chat with a hero or two. Also, a very good time for you to do a bit of free backof-the-jacket ad­ver­tis­ing for your mate’s brand of jeans.
