The 12 Hours of Sebring, 1967.

62 days until the 2014 12 Hours of Sebring!

Goodwood is next week and I miss it so much. We joked about post-Goodwood depression when we got back to the states last year. Now that it’s coming around to that time of year again, I can assure you, it’s real.

Goodwood is no joke, man.


May 27, 1941: The “Old Salts” of P.S. 118 raced their 18-inch boats in Baisley Pond Park in Queens. “What do you reckon that schooner sizes at?” “Oh, she’s at least a 17, 18-incher.” Photo: The New York Time:

Oh my god, it really was two Honda V-6 engines welded together.


Surtees, Monte Carlo ‘64

I wonder what these guys listened to when they weren’t in their race cars. Was Phil Hill a Beach Boys fan? Did Graham Hill like the Beatles or the Stones? I could see Dan Gurney listening to some George Jones or Merle Haggard, maybe.

Though I might also be way off the mark. Maybe the dudes were into jazz. Or Herb Alpert or something. But what was on their radio driving from race to race around Europe?

1958 Casablanca GP ,Morocco.

Mike Hawthorn (Ferrari 246) clinched the title at the final race. 

Guys, this was a thing that actually happened. There was actually a time when someone thought “yes, let’s race Formula One cars through Casablanca. That’s a great idea.”

They were right of course; I just can’t believe it actually happened.

Also, notably, the 1958 season was run with the cars drinking aviation gas. That’s practically a V6 Ferrari airplane. Sort of.

Jan. 20, 1994: “Time Out From a Higher Calling,” read a title on this photograph alongside a story about a group of East Harlem nuns originally from France. Sister Marie Chantal, leaping, and Sister Marie Francesca worked out at the Tae Kwon Do Academy at 828 Ninth Avenue. “The fact that we know tae kwon do doesn’t change anything,” Mother Marie Martha, the group’s mother superior told David Gonzalez, the reporter. “It’s just a sport.” Photo: Jack Manning/The New York Times Photo: Jack Manning/The New York Times


This will never stop being one of the most badass photos ever.

I’m not gonna lie, I’m more into that Marcos in the background than the BMW up front…
