Or the guy hanging out on the Triumph TR3.  A popular move from the earliest auto racers.  

But Citroens rule.  I love all of them.  

That hanging out of the car on the Inside of the corner was a often used maneuvre before the war.

I scanned the pictures below from my book Motor Sport in the 20's:

An Aston Martin in the 1924 Shelsley Walsh hill climb

A Vauxhall 30/98 in 1925, same event, same corner

I wouldn't know what happened to that chap but the stone he's sitting on is still there today.
