Do you know more websites with videos to download ??
This project 34 is really cool and it's growing ... it will be nice if they put videos from the 80'ies too !!

Don't tell any further but here's is my secret tip...

A Hungarian named Kristof has put an amazing amount of F1 video footage online: historic clips from 1950 to 1982 (with, I must add, most of the 1950-1979 material ripped from Neville Hay's video series), constructor portraits, 1992-2001 season's highlights, circuit highlights, driver tributes, and racing-related commercials.

You get on an index page with the following Hungarian-language directories (my Magyar is not that good but you'll soon understand what it's all about):

Csapatok (constructors)
Osszefoglalok (modern season highlights)
Palyak (tracks)
Reklamok (commercials)
Versenyek (historic footage)
Versenyzok (drivers)

Using a program like HTTrack will allow you to download the entire site in one go. You need broadband, however, as it harbours some 3 GB of material. The bandwidth is huge, however, and it has been so for a couple of weeks, which is pretty incomprehensible for a free site, but there you have it.

So keep it quiet, and hopefully the site won't go down through bandwidth excess ;)

Technically, these a recordings are cine rather than video as the technology for mintuarised TV cameras did not become available until the mid 1980s. The first real time on board TV footage I remenber seeing was actually from the Lunar Rover Vehicle on Apollo 15 in 1971. It took quite a while for this capability to become commercially available.

Jackie Stewart gets a bonus point for describing Paddock Bend as a left hander.... :)

Actually your Magyar is pretty good :up: Csapatok means teams :p I dont know how you could got that one wrong :D Anyway thanks for the link. :up:

I laughed my arse off when reading the name of the site. It is a famous saying of our own great commentator Laszlo Palik who is also boss of the Hungaroring and currently is taking place in the Dakar. The quote got so popular that there was even a song written for it. It means roughly: where did Damon Hill disappear to?
