Price: $2.90 USD. Words: 2,700. Language: English. Published: June 4, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Sports & outdoor recreation » Motor sports

Motor Racing in the 1960s and 1970s was an exciting time and the sport was much different than it is today. Jochen Rindt for me was the pinnicle of a super sportsman and a great person, who lived in times that were much simplier .
