Tasman/Aust. Gold Star videos

and know of footage in 'The BRM Story', but I was wondering if there were other videos available, especially '67 and '68.

Unfortunately professionally filmed material is a bit thin on the ground. Shell made a few films but from what I can gather they've never been released.
Sadly there is a bonanza of privately filmed footage usually 8MM tragically rotting away in many basements/garages around the country.

The well-lubricated party on Volume 2 after the 1967 ATCC is rather amusing. There is also footage of the tailend of Beechey clouting the wall while leading.

I remember seeing Alec filming in the pits at Longford in 1966.
More good news... film shot by TV channels of Warwick Farm racing has been recovered and will ultimately be made available in some form. Don't hold your breath...

Some of the Duke Videos "Champion" series DVD's have footage of the Tasman Series included in them circa 1966-68.
I have the "Hill", "Stewart" & "Clark" editions of that series, all of which have Tasman Series clips, from memory.
I have recently purchased the Through The Gears "Golden Age Of Motorsport Vol 4" which includes the 1968 Tasman rounds from Surfers Paradise and Warwick Farm. Unfortunately no footage of the epic 1968 Clark/Amon battle from Sandown is there, nor is any footage from Longford.
Bloodwood Gully Productions in Sydney are the only other people that I know of who have issued old racing footage from Australia on DVD, those bing the Beechey and Geoghegan titles that I have mentioned in another post.
If you watch R.P.M. (Network 10 Australia) you may have seen an interview with Frank Matich during the last few weeks. They showed some archival footage of the SR3 etc, which I'm sure was from the 1969 Rothman's film "Matich".... That, I'd like to see on DVD

I do know of Golden Age Vol 4, I ordered it the day after it was released, so I've had it about a month. Yes, the lack of '68 AGP on it was disappointing, considering the outcome of the race and that GTV9 and ATV0 both telecast it live into Melbourne. I am involved with the project developing the 1968 Tasman Series for Grand Prix Legends, so getting a hold of Vol 4 was essential for me.
