And then the dude finished third. Unreal.
This needs the story right here:
This beautifully prepared Penske Ferrari 512M held a lot of promise. Not only was it better prepared than a factory car but it also held the pole position at the Daytona 24 in 1971. Unfortunately early Sunday morning of race weekend Mark Donohue slowed the car on the high banks to avoid debris on the track from an accident involving Vic Elford’s Porsche 917. A Porsche 911 failed to see Donohue slow down and plowed into the Ferrari at full speed forcing it into the retaining wall. Donohue was not hurt and drove the car into the nearby pits with most of his tires flat. As you can see it took several rolls of duct tape to put the car back together plus some time to repair the suspension. Despite all of this bad luck the car actually finished third not far behind the winning Gulf Porsche 917.
Oh yeah…. Because it is Ferrari.
You will never be as cool as Steve McQueen.
Because it is Ferrari.
