Which Motorsport occurrence would you most like to have been in the paddock reporting on first-hand?

The 1995 Indianapolis 500. This event received major attention, both in the weeks leading up to the race, as well as the race itself. This race was one year after Penske’s Mercedes pushrod engines dominated the Brickyard, however it was a much different story one-year later. In 95 Penske’s cars were slow throughout the entire month of May, ultimately failing to qualify for the race. The race itself was filled with even more drama, as race leader Jacques Villeneuve passed the pace car on Lap 38 and was served a two-lap penalty. However, the Canadian fought back and ultimately won the highly-controversial race which saw fellow countryman Scott Goodyear robbed of victory over a similar incident with the pace car. To me, this race was a defining moment in Canadian Motorsports, Villeneuve would go on to Formula 1 the following year, taking the Drivers Championship title in 1997.
