1959 Protea Triumph testing at Grand Central just north of Johannesburg, South Africa
The Protea Triumph at Grand Central circuit just north of Johannesburg in 1959 - listen out for the overdrive 'gear' changes and spot some clever cinematography as the film blurs out with each sip of the beer. The Protea won the 1959 Hesketh 6 Hour, competed in the Angolan Grand Prix and took part in the last event at Grand Central before racing moved to the all-new Kyalami in 1961. It raced at the first Kyalami event and has had a continuous race history that still goes on today - still answering the '?' at the end of the film.
