reminds me of Paul Newman's race at Lime Rock a few years before he died.
It was a Grand Am race against pros in their 20-30's. It was in the rain.
Newman was 80. He finished in the top five.

Watched Newman at Lime Rock at an SCCA National in the rain. Started last, finished first. Had to be near 80 at the time. Hell of a driver.

The fact he was missing his teeth and half his colon gave him a distinct weight advantage.
