Great period footage and editing from 1967 of the very first Player's Grand Prix of Canada, held at Mosport in the rain.
There is something about this video, just seeing these amazing cars with their wide rear ends. The epic backfires, the sound of that high-strung supercharged 4 cylinder. Groupe B was such a mad and amazing era.
There is a lot of exciting auto news from Frankfurt this week, including the sensational BMW i8 launch. But this video of the new production car record lap at the ring really brings home just how far road cars have come in 30 years. This kind of performance is basically at Formula 1 car levels of the 1980s. And this is a beautiful car (admittedly an expensive one) that anyone can just go out and buy! It really boggles the mind. Kudos to Porsche and also to Mark Lieb, who offers a master class in clean, precise driving here.
