The Sundance Kids

Naw, Not Tony G. & Kevin K. Nor Emperor Bernardo & Mad Max… It was none other than Mario Andretti and Paul Newman. You see the elder Newman was being chauffeured by his one time ex-employee aboard one of the Minardi F1 X 2 Two Seaters on hand during the Edmonton weekend.

As apparently ‘Ol P.L simply showed up on his Vespa scooter to watch the 1978 Formula 1 World Champion taking passengers for rides. When Mario naturally inquired. “Wanna Ride?” So Mr. Newman gladly hopped aboard and reveled in the legend behind the wheel of the 700bhp 3.0 liter Cosworth V-10 derived F1 chassis.
