1937 was an incredible year for Grand Prix racing, with some of the most fabulous and fast cars ever seen in GP racing. It was the last year 750kg formula.

This video has some clips I haven't see before, with some camerawork that is exceptional for this era.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Thanks, Greg, I enjoyed that. Interesting in lots of ways... rifles, swastikas, and excellent (as you mentioned) camera work.
