The Margin Between Champagne and Orangeade

Drama on the closing lap of the ’67 Italian GP at Monza. Clark set pole and fastest lap, and had a tremendous drive after coming back from a puncture—but he’d end up on the orangeade end of the equation.

    Firmly believe this to be Clark’s best drive (maybe the 23B debut at the Ring too). Who comes from that far back at the pre-chicane Monza? Brilliant.

    Great race/video. The music is brutal and who is the
    lady they keep showing (not a playmate by any stretch)?

  3. Steve Boon

    Video is from the Ford Motor film ‘First Time Out’ (I think it was titled) about the ’67 F1 season of Lotus using the then all new DFV Cosworth.

    The lady is Betty Hill.

    Hillclimb located east side of Hwy 101, called Philips ranch(owner planned real paved course but found more profit in new tract homes
    Exit for Hillclimb was Chesebrough road
