Just something to think about.

I say this, and roll around with polarized Oakleys as my go to driving sunglasses.
In ‘THE PORSCHE PERFORMANCE DRIVING HANDBOOK’ Vic Elford writes how he’d never race with sunglasses on.
It does look as though 917 and 962 used a transparent visor or upper tinted windshield to use for moments when the sun was blinding - but I’m not certain.
