I loved it back in the day when the turbine-powered cars ran at Indy. Parnelli Jones kicked ass in 1967 in the first turbine powered Indy car but broke down with three laps to go (although he won a lot of lap money). Next year brought a few more turbine cars (the wedge cars) but by then the governing body was placing so many restrictions on them they faded into history. IMO, Indy politics played heavily into this and the piston engine party won.

Actually it's 800 left turns but who's counting?
