Univisión showed the dragrace and crash of Kalitta. It looked like the burning car had slowed considerably before crashing into the restraint at the end of the field. Still it may have been going 100 mph (161 kph). Maybe that crash is what killed him. The next day someone got up to about 325 mph (523 kph) in less than 4.6 seconds in the quarter-mile (402.3 meters).

Peugeot 908 Onboard - Le Mans 24 Hours 2007



The Le Mans race was A mail biter! Peugeot had the faster car however Audi's R10 was set up for endurance racing which played in their favor. I believe Peugeot used smaller radiators for this race to increase the speed of the car. I noticed several time the Peugeot's had to come into the pits to have the radiators cooled down.

One of my all time favorite racing movies from the 1960's! Starring James Garner aka Jim Rockford. The movie has excellent in car camera action as well.

Already have the film. Not a racing movie, but the chase in Bullitt is good as.

Only 2 days to the first ever F1. Night Race and I can't wait to see what the spectator experience is like at night. It's a street race so it is bound to have better lit coverage than Le Mans.

I hope my team pull out their fingers, stop spinning and crashing and manage to score some serious points.
