The Andretti Thread

#1

Post by Ruslan »

Short little feel-good article on Mario Andretti that is worth a read: https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/motors ... 3cff&ei=62

"The barriers to entry were a lot lower in American motorsport than in Europe; in the U.S., you just needed to show up at one of any number of local dirt tracks with a car that met the lax rulebook."

and

"European racing wasn’t lucrative. Again, there was an expectation that competitors were from well-to-do families and could afford to race for the love of the sport, not for money."
