Some 50's footage from Syracusa.

First time I've seen anything more of the circuit than the start finish straight, final bend and the hairpin.

 

The downhill left hand curve onto the back straight must've required a deep breath before turning in !!

Great footage - like yourself, I had never seen that much of the circuit before. Now I understand why CASB found it to his liking - it required the precision which came from a smooth driving style.

I meant to add to my comment of yesterday - this is the only footage I have seen of the '57 race, and it does not show Jack Fairman's manoeuvre on the banking which resulted in him taking the lead at the end of the first lap, much to the apparent surprise of the American commentator.

 

I've read all the stories (myths, legends, call them what you will), but was it just down to Jack's willingness to emulate cyclists at a velodrome? By all accounts, he made judicious use of the fact that he had more than two gears, but at the start of the race he appeared to be well behind the Indy roadsters, and I have never worked out how he made up the ground so effortlessly. Was it down to the "high up the banking" tactic ?

But Jack Fairman got money for leading a lap or so until his tyres overheated... The Indycars had only a 2 speed gearbox, so the Jaguar had an advantage from the start, but not for long.

Charade F2 1959 colour film - nicely done but there is some rather graphic footage of the unfortunate Ivor Bueb's fatal accident and it's aftermath . It' sobering, to say the least.

Great footage, and the warning about poor Ivor is much appreciated. I always had a soft spot for him after Le Mans '55 - he conducted himself with great dignity that awful day. Would shots of the aftermath of such an accident be shown today?

So sad to see. Ivor survived for a week and the final irony was that he died in hospital the following Saturday - the same day that Jean Behra lost his life at the AVUS. A very dark week for the sport

A little extra irony, I drove several laps of the circuit in 2005 with my fiancée in her MX5 and we stopped for a breather at this very corner, unaware then of it's significance. She, like Ivor, hails from Cheltenham. 

Looking at the film (I only watched it once) it's clear from the distorted wreck of the Cooper that the impact must have been huge  :(

Watching this clip brings home how appallingly rudimentary medical assisstance was in those days. In modern times, of course, an injured driver wouldn't ( we hope) be moved until an assessment of their condition has been made, and any life threatening condition stabilised. In this footage we see poor Ivor Bueb just being dragged along before being dumped on a stretcher. But, quite normal practice back then.

I'm sure that this will have been posted on here at some time, but my search couldn't find it (as is par for the course these days). A concise film with some nice footage and with voice-over from Sirs S Moss and J Stewart. Does anyone recognise the source of the film? Shame they can't spell Hawthorn correctly, though

I wonder if Dave Walker has ever watched that and wondered where did it all go wrong. It always seemed as if, on stepping into an F1 car, his talent evaporated.

 

Maybe...he seems to have had a tough run later in his career (despite the obnoxious spin put on it in the F1rejects bio)

 

Does anyone know if Morgan was blamed for the shunt with James before the Chequred Flag? He certainly looked to be "doing a desperate" under James in the film clip.

Dave Morgan was banned for 12 months after the Hunt accident so I guess he was!

I certainly did enjoy that! The Sauber-Merc always sounded lovely and I've never seen so much as a photo of the un-liveried AMR1 before. That sounds glorious. I remember hearing every gear change round the entire lap at Le Mans during the darkness  :clap:

Very interesting. I attended the Levin race so it was good to see film of these cars. Those high wings look even more outlandish now than they did at the time.

 

I was shaking my head at the following:

 

1) the poor quality of commentary "They're nose to tail those first three"  apart that is from Amon being 2 seconds or more ahead of the battling Hill & Courage (on lap 2).

2) What pased for marshalling attire in those days. I'm a great fan of miniskirts and knee high boots (watching Emma Peel at age 12 is to blame) but female marshals at Brands Hatch sensibly wear orange overalls. I'm surprised that anyone was allowed on post in such attire even in 1969 (about 5 laps in when Neil Allen stops trackside). To be fair the lady in question does hand the yellow (I assume it was yellow) flag to a male marshal after waving it for a few seconds - he was wearing shorts!

 

Does any film of the New Zealand Tasman races exist?

I thought we were not going to mention Le Mans!  ;)

 

On the subject of not mentioning Le Mans I thought I'd share this, I'm not hot on Latin Languages I think this one is in Italian, but it features a cameo with JP Beltoise talking quite fluently in Italian so maybe it is in French.

 

While this film is obviously made for an audience who goes, or at least used to go to the cinema for some reason other than to see a film it does have some redeeming features for the studious TNFer which includes :-

 

 

 

Spoiler Alert ! Spoiler Alert ! Spoiler Alert ! Spoiler Alert ! Spoiler Alert ! Spoiler Alert ! Spoiler Alert ! Spoiler Alert ! Spoiler Alert ! Spoiler Alert ! Spoiler Alert ! Spoiler Alert ! Spoiler Alert ! Spoiler Alert !

 

 

 

An opening psychedelic racing sequence for the titles.

 

Intro showing how dangerous motor racing is with footage of the 1955 Le Mans crash, which might be considered a little gratuitous, but not understanding the lingo of the film I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.

 

A lot of footage of the 1970 Spanish GP at Jarama including the Ickx / Oliver crash which gets improbably blended into the plot.

 

Then the action moves to either Algeria or Morocco for some sort of demolition derby where our hero duffs up a local race promoter who presumably is trying to rip him off in one of the most hilariously bad screen punch ups I have ever seen.

 

Some footage of the 1970 Dutch GP, where Beltoise makes his cameo appearance on the pit wall.

 

Some footage of testing of a vehicle made to look like a F1/F5000 car, but with only a single exhaust pipe, around what looks like a city circuit. I think there is footage elsewhere of J-M F testing a 250F at the same circuit.

 

Then the finale is bizarrely, maybe I missed something, built around Round 11 of the Guards Formula F5000 Championship... at Monza !

 

There is a smattering of what Stirling would call European crumpet lounging around swimming pools.

 

All in all well worth enduring for 90 mins just to see the stock footage much of which I was too young to see at the time.

 

Look out for John Surtees in the M7C, Dan Gurney the M14A and Gordon Spice in the Kitchener K3A.

 

oh and there is no footage from Le Mans apart from the 1955 bit it's called :-

 

Le Mans scorciatoia per l'inferno, enjoy.

There are copied going around from a F2 race in France from both 1966 and 1967. The 1967 event is from Albi, not sure where the '66 race is from but I should be able to tell you so in a week or two.

 

The '55 Le Mans 24 Hour race was broadcasted live all through Europe so surely more footage exists.

Just found this short but enjoyable clip of Rouen F2,though I think it's 1967 rather than 1966 as quoted in the title

 

 

There's also a link to the aftermath of the 1967 Caserta accident but I'll let people choose whether to look at it or not. 

I would however be interested to know if that's Romano Perdomi ( Tiger )  seemingly sitting calmly trapped in his car at 46 seconds in.  Clay Regazzoni was quoted as saying that he was conscious in the wreckage before being taken to hospital where he passed away.

Not Youtube, but probably worth noting here: Geheimnis Nürburgring, a 45-minute German-language documentary, broadcast last night on WDR. Contributions from Lauda and Stuck - among others - and including some German newsreel and TV footage I've not seen before. 1920s to 1980s. Interesting shots of activity in the Fahrerlager in the mid-50s too. The last ten minutes is probably of less interest to most, since it covers the Rock am Ring festivals and the financial mismanagement which caused the track to go broke. :well:

Vitesse thanks for pointing out...Did see it, but thought as it is German...Interesting is the family story of the 'inventor' and his daughter interviewed. One of the track subways was a hide-out for a family during the WW II air-raids!!

 

At 25.13 or 25.14 min a Protos formula 2 on the start/ finish straight..
