I have always been awed by driving 500 miles with that hot exhaust functioning as an arm rest.  How could you not avoid touching it periodically during the race?

It appears to have some sort of sleeve(asbestos?) around it where it's in close proximity to the drivers arm.

usually had a heat shield

"usually" . . . ?

The changing standards of safety and the many things we take for granted today, it is easy to forget how ridiculously dangerous these early cars were. Especially racers.

Most early racers I have seen in person and in early photos have some sort of heat shield. The car in this photo has one.
