Firstly I must say it looks fantastic. But;
Interesting the terminology used, they call it a race. But the video shows single cars running over a measured distance with a speed trap, that's a speed trial.
I realise the speeds are not great (top speed was around 114 mph) and I know they are wanting to create a certain atmosphere and look.
Absolutely no safety; how many cars are there without any roll cage, any seat belts, fire extinguisher, driving suit or modern protective helmet.
It's all fun till someone gets poked in the eye.
Keep the shiney side up........
