The Lotus 79

I’m only just now learning about the Lotus 79.

Mario Andretti and Ronnie Peterson driving their Lotus 79s at the 1978 Dutch Grand Prix.

I’ve been doing some research on it, and had learned that it took the checkered flag at the 1978 Belgian Grand Prix.

When I went looking for video footage of that race, I was able to locate a copy of the entire event.

It’s a bit grainy, and the color commentary is in – I believe – Standarddeutsch. But it’s quite a find and I wanted to share it.

Maybe I should call it “Der Große Preis” instead?
