That lucky Tiff Needell bastard actually got to have a few laps in the 49.
Not the most enjoying part of this clip, but take a look at the historical footage and listen to CABC as wel as to Costing and Duckworth.

That made my entire afternoon!

My one problem is that distance keeps me from my Elan. (36/5395)
