This was back in the 60s and 70s before F1 became corporatised. Hear how Peter chased up facts including a phone call with Keke Rosberg. More info
On 10-11 April an intrepid team of 4 LCV members braved the rain and ran in a relay regularity event organised by Porsche Club Victoria. In these events each driver accumulates penalty points for being above or below their nominated laptime. Not only did we have fun and complete the event without incident, we also set a new record – the most penalty points ever accumulated! We nominated dry lap times, and as it rained the whole time, we ran a lot slower.
