Had an absolutely wonderful day yesterday at the VSCC Prescott Speed Hill Climb. Even the short "monsoon" around lunchtime didn't spoil it and the beer was excellent too :drunk:

I uploaded a short video taken while I wandered around (I would have taken more but my camera battery gave up the ghost ...).

Thanks Nev, that reminds me of my only visit to Prescott on my last trip to England--I wandered about all day, soaking up the atmosphere, not knowing a soul and happy as a lark...

Apologies if this has been posted on this forum before but I found this video fascinating. 48hrs spent in the company of Andy Green at a race meeting as he prepares to try and hit 1000mph in Bloodhound SSC.

Includes some interesting insights into development of the LSR vehicle.

Not youtube and sadly pretty low res but here is video which includes coverage of the 1973 BMW CSL in action. 1973 was the high point of the ETCC. Multi-page reports appeared for every round in AutoSport and even MotorSport had some coverage. But sadly film/video coverage seems hard to come by.

Well, talking of unprotected trees, here are a couple of onboard laps at the old Caversham "D" circuit in Oz filmed in 2007.




I know the drivers used to complain about the sand on the main straight at Zandvoort, but this is ridiculous !! I think that the Caversham main straight has now been re-tarmaced as housing has been built in the area but believe that the section through the trees remains as it was .

Don't know about that, Chris. The Google Earth image of the Caversham circuit is dated the last day of November last year and that straight looks just the same. The short bit of clean tarmac is clearly visible but the rest looks like the beach.

Thanks Barry,

How strange. I'm sure I read somewhere that a road had been built on the old runway to serve a new housing estate. Maybe I was thinking of somewhere else.

Wonderful Pathe footage of the Ulster Trophy 1952 with unfortunately no sound. http://www.britishpa...nal-trophy-race. Even so: Fangio in the BRM V16 (it lasted 25 laps); a curly-headed Stirling Moss (his lasted 3) and an equally youthful Mike Hawthotn. Useful reminder, for those going to the Revival, of what to wear.

As a resident of these parts, I can confirm typical Ulster weather, and typical Ulster roads. They haven't changed to this day - goodness knows what the overseas drivers thought of the place. Charm and craic don't always make up for things. I am reminded that this is the race that nearly cost Fangio his life; he was supposed to get a flight with Bira in his private plane to the Italian GP the next day but Bira had gone home early, having crashed. So he gpt a lift with Louis Rosier, who loaned him a car to drive to Monza, and he raced with no sleep at all........

What also worries me about this incident is the apparent complete lack of marshals, apart from the one we eventually see waving the red flag.

and its directors," he continued.

"I contacted the Technical Board of GP Gaúcho, the same neighbor reported that the pilot had a fiscal track, the radio reported that the" false attitudes "of the pilot and that, in fact, the only relief was the place to retire the pilot of the track, not to cause a real accident, "he explained. "It is clear that the" delay "questioned, is now definitively clarified and technical vision of CBM, we again affirm that the board acted properly GP Gaúcho," he added.

Still, the president said Kalunga not receive any kind of sanction by the entity. "This occurred in the State Championship Motorcycle Grand Prix of Rio Grande do Sul and not in the Brazilian Championship Motorcycle Grand Prix. It's up to Gaúcha Motorcycling Federation - FGM, take action against punitive pilot in question, "he concluded.

Certainly not. Of course, not everybody acted as stupid as this brazilian chap. I remember seeing on TV a race at Brands Hatch ( perhaps WSB?) when after a first lap crash aproaching Druids a rider was lying on the track motionless. As soon as the red flags were thrown he jumped on his feet and was in a hurry to get to the pits in time for the restart...

And we will of course never forget Martin Schanche, who didn't even bother to lay down on the track but firmly stood on his feet when bringing a complete rallycross-EC grid to an abrupt halt midcorner. (Search for "Schanche red mist" on youtube)

They certainly did. My Dad took me to the Farnborough Airshow in 1964 and we all stood there gobsmacked as P1127 took off vertically from behind some trees, dipped it's nose and then shot off. Amazing :)

Missed this at the time, but whoever figured it as Corona (CA) Show Grounds is correct.

My first thought was 5-H Speedway in Roscoe (CA), but the track and length didn't quite look right. Knew it was a non-CRA race based on the drivers (aside from Jim Rathmann).
