Kyalami 1978 revisited

Enjoy this hitherto little-seen colour AP Archive video of the 1978 South African GP at Kyalami. Niki Lauda stole the pole for Brabham-Alfa when no-one was looking on Friday morning; the race was led by Lauda, Mario Andretti, Jody Scheckter, Riccardo Patrese and Patrick Depailler; but it was Ronnie Peterson who seized the lead on the last lap to win for JPS Lotus. This video, which is an edited excerpt from our weekly live show, also includes short post-race interviews with both Peterson and Depailler, plus bonus additional footage from qualifying and some of my own photos from the famous Kyalami Ranch hotel.
