We can’t help but wonder whether those who invented and developed the internal combustion engine could ever have foreseen where it would end up. Today the petrol engine can power pretty much everything, from go-karts to buses, Formula 1 to lorries. It must have been seen, however, that mankind would end up racing them.
It is an incredibly human thing, to wan to go as fast as possible, and it is all the better if you are going faster than someone else at the same time. Perhaps it is the inherent danger of speed, the thought that you are at anytime only inches and seconds away from a crash and potential death or serious injury. It could be the competitiveness, motorsport almost as an analogy for war where teams fight it out to prove that they are better than their rivals.
Whatever it was, racing has been around for a huge time. Whenever we think of the Romans it is hard not to think of the classic scenes from movies where charioteers race in an early approximation of the Indy 500, and this was something that really happened, with leading charioteers becoming famous and wealthy. Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. NB
