    This film is great. Fangio, Moss, and more legends driving in 1955

    http://www.motorsport.com/f1/video/main-gallery/1955-belgian-grand-prix/

    The '1955 Belgian Grand Prix' film commissioned by Shell, tells the story of the 1955 Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix held at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit.Nestled in the Ardennes Forest, surrounded by trees and rolling hills, the track was one of the finest and fastest road racing circuits of its era, as well as being one of the most beautiful.The film follows the progress of the thirteen drivers as they tackle the high-speed circuit, reaching record-breaking average speeds of over 120mph around the 9-mile track. Shell partnered Ferrari in the inaugural FIA Formula One World Championship in 1950. Since then they have competed in over 500 races together, collecting 12 Drivers' World Championships and 10 Constructors' World Championships, achieving one of the longest and most successful partnerships in the history of motorsport.

    James Glickenhaus drove his all carbon fiber Ferrari powered P4/5 Competizione to Lime Rock. Look for it in the next version of Gran Turismo.

    By 5 p.m. Friday, over 85 race teams had loaded into the infield at Martinsville Speedway in preparation for Sunday’s Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300. That number was expected to top 90 by Saturday morning.

    Several former winners are entered in the field including three-time winner Philip Morris, who won last year, two-time defending national champion Lee Pulliam, who captured the event in 2012, Timothy Peters, Dennis Setzer and Alex Yontz.

    The $25,000 first-place money for the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 is the biggest in NASCAR Late Model racing, but it could be a much, much bigger payoff if the race winner captures the Triple Crown, wins the Sparks Sunoco Qualifying Award, which pays $1,000, and wins the $2,000 Clarence’s Steakhouse half-way award. That would mean a whopping $33,000 payday, the biggest ever for a Late Model winner at Martinsville.

    There will be an autograph session on the front stretch at 10 a.m. Sunday.

    The first of the four 20-lap heat races begin at 12 noon on Sunday followed by the 20-lap last chance race. The 200-lap feature should begin around 3:30 p.m.

    Tickets are only $25 with youth 12 and under admitted free.

    Jack Hanna is Graham Rahal's godfather. Cool story about rhinos.
