Please do have a look in here for videos I uploaded into YouTube. I am sure there are a lot of Birmingham Superprix footage that you haven't seen for a long time!

This is another piece of oh so typical Formula ford action.

There is always someone who will take the impossible down the inside line to a corner at a speed they have not a hope in hell of getting round and take out a couple of blameless people with them,.

They could play the skater's waltz over this one

The thing that's always impressed me about that guy is the way that, despite spending 15 years designing and building a perfect, working 1/3 scale model, he seems, well....... normal!

If I'd had his skills and patience, I think I'd have gone for a Matra MS120 - but each to his own...

AIRPS is attempting to get these vintage links in one place and in some type of format for ease of viewing. Feel free to add.

It does not require a "registration" to provide the link.

We will see how this works.

Surely you mean a robotic Jacky Ickx?! :p

Slightly off the wall maybe for this thread, but I can't help be reminded at this time of year of my first Scalextric, probably as an eight year old in 1963. Green Aston Martin DB4, Blue Ferrari 250 GT, both with working lights - great!

Later replaced when I went over to an Airfix set with a banked section and an Eagle and Honda, probably 1968. Hey, it's still in my loft... :) :)



Shows what can be done with today's camera technology!

Hope that all you dads who have bought sets for your offsprings this Christmas are suitably excited... :up: :up:

Best wishes for the Festive Season!

An interesting selection of clips called The History of Motor Racing , one of them here ...



Not my favourite era (I'm more of a '55 to '75 man), but interesting shots of AVUS and Montlhery, and some heroic drivers.

Plus a new meaning to 'a large Campari', with tragic footage of his final race.

Great clips. Particularly love the Mansell BTCC wet race - watched it live, and good to see again.

On the copyright thing - the biggest myth is that you can multiply the number of downloads or views by the cost of the official product and call it a ''loss'' for the copyright holder. I never look for specific races on youtube so by definition I wouldn't have looked through a catalogue and bought it. Capitalism is about supply and demand and the perceived value of goods. The thing that businesses struggle with is the fact that technology has allowed consumers to make that decision for themselves.

When videos came out there was a lot of doom-mongering amongst TV execs, now they make millions on lavish box sets. The record industry said they would go out of business, itunes, etc also make millions.

By and large if I really want something that I can watch again and again I will buy a DVD. If someone trying to make a business of selling old racing footage and they actually have a brain they would be posting clips on youtube and then linking them on threads like these and giving simple and easy access to the official copy by online download. If you fail to keep up with technology you will die, simple as that.

BTW - that BTCC race was BBC coverage I (and all the TV license payers here) technically paid for it anyway :-)

Thanks for posting, Rob!

Can anyone point me in the direction of the original video? From reading the YouTube comments, it seems the documentary was first released in the eighties on VHS - has it ever been updated to DVD?

Cheers,

I wasn't quite sure if this link should go in another thread; in an ideal world, we'd have a thread dedicated to 100 years of Lancia, but considering the current state of the company, it appears to me that people would rather not think about anything that's occurred within the last 10 years at the firm...

Anyway, here's an enchanting sequence of photos taken from the celebrations in Turin a couple of months back, set to highly appropriate music; appropriate if you're a Lancista that it...

Enjoy!

That's great, but can't help but notice the gear ratios are completely wrong for that circuit! Obviously the LeMans gearset :)

Great stuff Mark.

I think this is the first footage I have seen of the Nurburgring, that gives a feel for the incredible elevation changes involved on this awesome circuit.

Thanks
