    1990, at Phoenix AZ, Jean Alesi drove a storming race in his Tyrrell 018, taking the lead at the start & dicing with Ayrton Senna's all-conquering @McLarenF1 MP4/5B all afternoon. Senna beat him in the end, but Alesi made him work for it.

    Yes, that image has been photoshopped....and a pretty primitive version by the looks of it. I think the altitude is greatly exaggerated too.

    Was that Saturday morning? I watched the opening laps from the same spot. Do we need to mention the Greyhound bus in the Bog?

    Ha! No way . . you were there? This was the race on Sunday. I was walking to the paddock area on the Saturday to check out the Shadow Can-Am cars as they were about ready for the "Shadow Showdown" When I say the smoke and thought something awful had happened on the track. Word soon spread that it was started by the Bog Animals.

    For sure fake. But these cars did leave the ground at that bump.

    No I bought mine in 1975 as a gently used car. Made the trip in a Volvo 142E.
