What happens if while racing a Ferrari in a borrowed Porsche 917, (my favorite race car of all time), on a track and you over rev the engine? The court says you get out your wallet and fork over about $200,000.
Hey, it isnt easy to blow the engine on a car that to this day still holds the top end speed for Le Mans during the race and set way back in circa 1971---a bit more than 248 MPH.
I did some very low level amateur unofficial road racing in Europe in my youth. I've got to tell you that if I had gotten a chance to develop my skills and given a choice of what I most would like to race would be at Le Mans in a Porsche 917. Little down force and built for flat out straight line speed on circuit that then had a 3.2 mile straight on its approximately 8 mile circuit in a group of cars that had up to 100 MPH difference in speed between them---man it doesn't get any better than that. -- The signal is usually drowned out by the noise.
It probably had something to do with Hale wearing Maserati logos on his racing suit while driving the 917............. -- one should not increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything
