^ I thought it was awesome in that he was willing to put aside not being a recipient of the prize because, as he put it, "When you're using public funds, I personally believe you have an obligation to share. I put my heart and soul into it, but if I kept that stuff, it wasn't gonna go anyplace."

Basically, a sort of "there IS some hope for humanity" story...

Kemmel Straight + Formula One cars + 1992 aerodynamics + first lap, so low tyre pressures and a heavy fuel load = enough sparks to make a fireworks display jealous...
