Mario and His Lotus Breaking in the Circuit of the Americas

Mario Andretti christened Austin’s Circuit of the Americas with his 1978 Formula 1 World Championship winning John Player Special Lotus 79. Listen to that Cosworth hum.

Thanks, Racer.

    As a proud American of Italian descent, and as a lifetime motor racing fanatic, I consider the Andretti family as royalty. In my opinion, Mario Andretti was the world’s greatest driver of the second half of the 20th Century. (Nuvolari owned the first half!)
