VIDEO: Seek—The Anatomy of Auto Racing 1973


The loss of festival within the 1973 SCCA Can-Am sequence obviously heralded its drawing close dying. “All Porsche, at all times. And more often than not, only one Porsche … Now not a compelling tale,” penned “Rapid Traces” columnist Pete Lyons within the newest factor of Antique Motorsport mag. (Ensure that to take a look at Lyons’ newest calendar when you haven’t already.)

Whilst the Penske Porsche 917/30 pushed via Mark Donohue—the “only one Porsche”—completely ruled the ’73 Can-Am and so helped pull down the curtain on a chain suffering anyway amidst a world Power Disaster, it used to be an awe-inspiring system with a distinguished place at the Most sensible 10 Maximum Brutal and Impressive Race Vehicles of all time listing.

And it’s that Penske/Donohue Porsche that will get a lot of the point of interest in an August 2018 YouTube publish (via “HODIUSDUDE”) entitled “Seek – The Anatomy of Auto Racing (1973)”

The 31m movie—”from the SpeedVision vault,” it claims—is intro’d via now retired and much-missed former Speedvision “Wind Tunnel” host Dave Despain whose perception units up “Seek”, a movie that “examines the crew side of car racing via having a look at reverse extremes, one finish being Penske Racing working on a multi-million buck platform throughout a number of sequence (Indy automobile, Can-Am, NASCAR, F5000 and sports activities vehicles) and Jon Farbman’s effort to box an SCCA H Manufacturing magnificence Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite.”

As Despain so as it should be posits in his intro, the 917/30 pictures on my own is worthy of your viewing time.
