The début of WRC All Live at last week’s 86th Rally de Monte Carlo showcased a championship willing to take risks with its coverage. It may have been shaky at times, but it worked and is a step in the right direction.
It was surprisingly hot inside - of course, I should have guessed. Being at Vallelunga - only 40km north of Rome - in mid-October, it did not occur to me that summer stretches just a little further than in the UK. Inside a tiny closed cabin with no air conditioning merely emphasised the point.
Being at Spa-Francorchamps over the weekend kept me busy, but what downtime I did eventually have allowed me kick back and think a bit.
With the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis fast approaching, I dug up this little piece of classic television from YouTube.
