“Aerodynamics were an important consideration in designing the cars. The more aerodynamic a car was, the more beautiful it became. We understood that less air underneath made a car go faster.” — Scaglietti
This is one of my favorite racing photographs, of all-time.
No, it doesn’t have the same impact as a million-sized Group B crowd standing 10 inches away from a Quattro doing the speed of light, but this moves me quite a bit. In the photo, Alberto Ascari (in the Lancia D24 #602) is making a victory move that would eventually lead him to victory in that same Mille Miglia.
