That guy just oozed charisma in a down to earth way. I could never figure out if he was a Brit or French.

I remember seeing him giving a presentation on driving a pre-pre-war racecar.

FIAT let him drive one of their big, pre WWI beasts that was powered by a zeppelin engine or something like that.

Chain drive, total loss oiling system, rear wheel brakes, sliding gear transmission, all the good stuff.

He said something to the affect: "It has brakes but you don't dare use them. If you want to slow down coming into a turn, pitch the car sideways and steer it with the throttle. This way, if anything goes wrong, you might still have some brakes which may save you."

I really enjoyed anything he was hosting.
