#11: The Venerable Mr. Ecclestone (Part 1)

His was the vision that took Formula 1, once the domain of men covered in...
#10: Fiddle Brakes and Bargeboards

In this episode we look at Audi's domination at Le Mans with their R8, R10, R15 and R18 prototypes, the revolutionary STP-Paxton Turbocar from the 1967-68 Indy 500 and several Formula 1 cars, including Mclaren's MP4/4,...
