    Only Survivor From First Grand Prix

    a 1906 Darracq race car (the only surviving car from the worlds first Grand Prix) literally takes a spin at one of The Vintage Aviator's World War One aircraft display days at Hood Aerodrome in Masterton, New Zealand. Watch the car spin out on the grass, and then do a (very) high speed run down the aerodrome runway, and remember that this car was built 106 years ago!

    I believe that is what one would call "exposed" driving. I shudder to think what would have happened if he had rolled it during the spin.

    Sam,

    I saw another video of that car doing a hill climb.

    Silver, I helped put the engine on the frame. But I wasn't dumb enough to ride in it.
