F1-S-R 74: INTERLAGOS SAO PAULO, BRAZIL (1974)

 F1-S-R 1974: Interlagos Sao Paulo (Brazil) - Philippe, Shaun & Ray coming up to turn one after 4 or so laps. — at Autódromo José Carlos Pace.

Following my first exercsion into the world of vintage simulator racing in the F1-S-R league I incurred a 2 race suspended ban with a view to having it removed if my driving improves. This ban was evoked by a virtual witch-hunt [that was truly scary] after I caused a massive collision at the first corner :\ If you wanna see the footage of this event with commentary by Jason White feel free to watch it at YouTube here. Anyway, I’m not going to dwell on that race as it was quite forgettable – LOL! Over the weeks following this incident I practised and on the 2nd February I was ready to drive the old 741 March Engineering simulator F1 sportcar amongst a truly international field in Interlagos Sao Paulo in Brazil at the  at Autódromo José Carlos Pace race circuit. The race was exciting and I scored my first point with out an incident. Highlights include the loss of my ‘Overtake virginity’, a 1 lap chase with the other gentlemen racers & a frightening collision with the barriers. All in all just happy to finish: screen shots below:
