GPL – 68 laps at Monza 1966

To celebrate our 2nd anniversary, THR will do 2 celebration races.

Part One is the race with the GPL Mod at Monza. We will race 68 laps like they did back in 1967.

Some Information from Wikipedia

Back in 67, the race was won by British driver John Surtees driving a Honda. It was the sixth and final career victory for Surtees, as well as the first ever race for the Honda RA300 which he drove to victory.
It was the first Formula One race where start lights were used.

This race is considered one of Jim Clark's greatest performances in Formula One. He led the race until lap 12 when he picked up a puncture and lost an entire lap. He then spent the next 48 laps recovering through the field, taking the lead on lap 60, and pulled away. But on the final lap, a faulty fuel pump allowed Jack Brabham and Surtees to pass the Scotsman and finish first and second, with Surtees ahead by less than a car length at the line.

Some fans and journalists still consider this race to be, in terms of race action and excitement, the greatest Grand Prix of all time.
