Circuit de la Sarthe

[Editors note: I've posted this as a hopeful distraction from the tragedy that unfolded at Virginia Tech today. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families]

So you want to be a race-car driver eh?

Well maybe you'll think twice after checking out this video from inside a Porsche 956 at Le Mans in 1983. You'll get a fantastic sense of speed as the machine hurdles down the famed Mulsanne straight at over 250 mph. (The car will cover 3 and a half miles in less than a minute)

Note: This footage is filmed in real-time and has not been sped up in any way.
