Sunday Drive-In: Nine Days in Summer
Welcome to another edition of Sunday Drive-in, where we celebrate cool videos around the inter-webs. Today we are going to return to a time when the drivers were fat and the tires were skinny.
Nine Days in Summer was a Ford promotional film made in 1967 and covers the development of the Ford Cosworth DFV and Lotus 49. There is some great footage of tracks like Zandvoort, Spa and the classic Green Hell of the Nurburgring (the real 14 mile track and not the current kart track F1 uses). Plus hero drivers Jimmy Clark and Graham Hill. Also, keep an eye out for a 7 year old Damon Hill.
