1959 Protea Triumph at Grand Central

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.
