A big shifter kart! Non assisted steering, brakes without regen, manual shifter, steering wheel probably want to rip your thumbs off. So analog, so real, serious consequences for the driver not keeping up with all the analog inputs and reacting fast enough. The next generation will never know.

If it was really '74 there would have been spectators in the cafe and no chain link fence around cafe.

Not 1974 and not James Hunt. This video is from a recently run historic race. Bad ass none the less.
You know, I thought that might be the case.....the gloves looked too current, and at the start there was a couple lights on the tack. I figured someone had “cleaned up” the film in post production style.

I gave my daughter advice when it's time for her to settle down and where to look for a husband, don't do bars, internet dating sites or dumb reality show's. I simply told her to find the man of your dreams look in Church, Monaco or better yet a Church in Monaco...

Also, the nouveau (new) chicane after the tunnel wasn't added until the 80's or 90's.

Here is an amazing Senna Monaco clip:

Whole time I was watching it I was thinking. "No way did they have a camera that good back in 1974"
Got that too but was still a great watch. Balls at the start to push that hard on some expensive historic cars! Love it!!!
