Purdy Car, Purdy Picture

Ferrari Dino 246, Wolfgang Von Trips, Station Hairpin, Monaco Grand Prix, 1958

A late post for this post title: Usually I look for a noteworthy picture to start a new month, but this month my own Tail of the Dragon run pre-empted it.

I miss the era "When drivers were fat and tires were skinny."  Luckily, we can revisit it (mostly) at club racing weekends in the modern era.  There is much to be said for an engine more powerful than the available grip, and a driver who can waltz with the car and the road.
