    Since 1925, about 150 different racing outboards have been made.

    Watching that brings back memories of the first few F1 races in Sacramento. There were a few shots in the video form there as well.

    I noticed that too, Joe. The only time I ever got to see them was at Sacramento 85 (or 84?). That was such a heart wrenching weekend. One I'll never forget.

    I've got several VHS tapes of their television series that I recorded, but can't figure out how to make clips from them.

    Default Safety capsules in F1

    You may or may not be aware that the first safety capsule (cell) in F1 was designed and built by a British guy called Chris Hodges. It was after Tom Percival was killed in a racing accident that Hodges decided that he wanted to do something to help increase the driver's safety

    The very first cell (picture below) is in a powerboat museum in England

    http://www.motorboatmuseum.org.uk/co...ons/safety.php

    The rumour goes that in order to test the strength of the cell in the event of a large impact, they flew a helicopter at speed a few feet about the water and dropped the cell out
