Gordon Murray TV programme
Posted 09 July 2012 - 09:35
I thought it pretty good overall. I liked the bit where the first T25 Murray City car has its initial test run. GM in crash helmet roars off as if it were a new F1 car. Also his design team seem to do a crazy and dangerous soap box race each year as team building - great!
The old footage of GM'd Brabham designer days with long hair and Lennon glasses etc. reminds me just how YOUNG F1 designers were . I think GM was only 27 when he did his first GP car. Tony Southgate was 29 when he did the BRM P153, having already designed a winning Indy car at 28.
Chapman was almost old for his first GP car in 1958 as he was 30 at the time.
Anyway, the programe is on again in the Uk BBC4 channel on Tusday night at 23.50 BST , or it may be available outside the UK on BBC iplayer ( www.bbc.co.uk)

Your television programming in the UK is, well, superior to ours in the USA. We have Jersey Shore, etc. On the other hand, you did send us Top Gear.
