Brings back some good old memories. In the late 70s I was part of the pit crew for a friend's Formula 1 racer. He had a modified Cassutt (homebuilt single seat airplane powered by a Continental O-200). He took 3rd. place that year and because they must conform to a formula, the top 3 winners were met on the runway as they landed and their planes were taken away to be inspected. A few hours later his plane was returned to him with his engine dissambled in a box!
I could be wrong but I seam to remember Dago Red being there, I think it had a big V-12 (Merlin?) with counter-rotating props.
You have never experianced real power until you experiance the sound coming from the short stacks of the big Allisons, Merlins, Pratt and Whitneys, etc.
