Age Versus Fitness in Motor Racing

I have often heard it argued that motor racing is not a sport, that it can’t be difficult to sit in a car and just drive. Of course, just about any form of motor sport is hard work – anyone who thinks otherwise should take the chance to have a go at their local go-kart centre. It’s not in any way as easy as the experts make it look.

In the following video – produced in 1995 – the work involved is demonstrated by Larry Perkins and Paul Romano – in the process proving that age is also no barrier.

Great stuff.
