Beating Nazis in a racecar sounds like the plot of a ’90s action movie-- but it’s actually straight out of real life. Today on Past Gas, the story of how a band of determined outsiders, led by Lucy Schell, prevailed over Hitler in Formula racing, infuriating the Fuhrer and handing him a defeat even more humiliating than his art school rejection letters (for real). It’s an underdog car story for the ages, and if you like Bugatti, Mercedes, or just hearing about Hitler losing, this episode’s for you.
