Very cool! Great find Whiz. Just note that it's from 67 not 69. Dan had the lead in this race with 2 laps to go when a universal joint let go. This race was 2 weeks after his victory at Spa, had he won here, Firestone would have kept their sponsorship and he'd have been in the running in 68. All the cars were unrealiable though. Only reason Brabham won the Championship was his was the most relaible car, nowhere near the fastest. Oh well, to finish first you must first finish. :)

And 8:22 at the 'ring... In my dreams.

Great find, Whiz :thumbsup:

I was 5 when this was being run :lol:

My father used to bring me Formula 1 posters when he came home from his travels in Europe. I'd give my eye teeth to have the 5-foot wide poster he gave me of the '67 Ferrari. Somehow, it got sold in a garage sale when I was away at university :angry:

Yep, ain't it a great vid?

And the poster looks great on my bedroom wall! Thanks, Doug!

I knew I knew you from somewhere before! You did live in Canada.

Curses!
