Can Am, Mosport Park 1983. Jim Crawford, Michael Roe and Jacques Villeneuve Snr star. Some good in car footage if you can put up with the 80's sound track!!

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:

There's footage of Peterson's crash during 1976 German GP. The camera looks like TV one which covered Winkelhock's crash at the same corner in F2 in 1980. This could indicate that there is tv footage of this race somewhere.

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..

 

Michael

And they call the English insular! :lol: I only knew about it because it came up on another (German) BB. But even if you don't understand German it's worth it for some of the footage.

 

My ear for German's not all that good these days - I'm still okay on written - but I managed to get the gist of most of it. The use of the tunnels as a shelter was new to me too - although I did know the Sporthotel was full of refugees when the Americans arrived.

 

I spotted the Protos too: I did idly wonder if that's the only film of it in action!

 

Incidentally, it was rather amusing to note that at the point that the words 'deutsche Rennfahrer' were uttered, the picture being shown was a brief shot of Richard Seaman! :lol:

Rare indeed. I can't say when I last saw footage of FJ back in the early days. Very "flat"-sounding engines  - more like a single-seat Fiat 1100 race. Boy, they were in for a shock when the Cooper and Lotus arrived on the scene.

The same footage is included in this 1976 TV report from 8:42 till 9:16:

Apologies if this has been posted before. It is the whole of Win Percy's Sideways in a D-type: all 14 laps of the Sussex Trophy Goodwood Revival 20??. Previously I've seen only clips. Super footage and a great race.

I've seen bits of that video before but not heard Win's commentary. Absolutely fabulous and interesting to hear his views about respecting what he's driving when Tony Dron got past. Old school racer with old school attitude. Thank you Mr Percy :)

Only 15 years after this got aired, I have found the time to upload it:

 

 

When Formular One returned to Austria in 1997, public Austrian TV station ORF went ballistic and broadcasted many hours of coverage each day, starting Wednesday. One part of it was this documentary about the old Österreichring, directed by Heinz Prüller. If I remember correctly, its original running time was around 20-25 minutes, and here is unfortunately only a fragment. I was at the Ring at the time and had to rely on mum to switch VHS cassettes, which went wrong at this point. Nevertheless, there is priceless footage in these 13 minutes.

 

Jo Siffert

Jackie Stewart
Emerson Fittipaldi

Colin Chapman

Heinz Prüller

Niki Lauda
Clay Regazzoni
Carlos Reutemann
Mark Donahue

(Someone holding Mark's drip?)
Luca di Montezemolo

Vittorio Brambilla

Bernie Ecclestone

Tom Pryce

James Hunt
Hans Binder
John Watson

Stirling Moss
Jody Scheckter
Alan Jones
Ronnie Peterson
Jean-Pierre Jabouille
Jaques Laffite
Alain Prost
Keke Rosberg
Elio de Angelis
Nelson Piquet
Michele Alboreto
Helmut Marko
Andrea de Cesaris
Ayrton Senna
Gerhard Berger
Nigel Mansell

 

Edit: Berger at the end in the hut, commenting on how his home GP had changed for him now that Lauda was not racing anymore: "It's crazy with the people here, yeah. But imagine what Niki must have gone through, it's unbelievable. For me it's like that only in Austria, but for him it was like that even with the negroes ("Neger"), unbelievable. He must have suffered ("muss ein armer Hund gewesen sein")."

Hmm, is that a pace car @1:12? I always thought that only time in 1970s they used pace car in F1 race was Canadian GP in 1973.

 

Edit: it must be before the start of the race, since Cevert lasted only couple of laps

Yeah it is. Prüller says it was the first try of a pace car, after an accident at the 73 race, which was BTW on August 19, while Canada was September 23.

I agree about it being 1973. However, it can't be from race. It must be one of the practice sessions. You can clearly see two Tyrrells behind the pace car and Cevert was out by lap 6. I found this on youtube: - see that at 14:10 Cevert is already out of his car and up to that moment there is no pace car.

I meant "race" in the sense of "event". Prüller does not explicitly say that this is in the race. First there is this interview with Lauda, where Lauda says he cannot drive due to his broken arm. Then Prüller (with the shades, in 1973 at the track) says that Lauda will nevertheless be busy because he will join Prüller to comment the race on ORF. Then the cut to the pace car and Prüller (in 1997 from the off) commenting "and what do we have here, the first time a pace car was tried, which collects the cars after an accident". Then he (still in 97, from the off) immediately says, without making clear in any way that time has passed in the old footage, "the winner: Ronnie Peterson, and Jackie Stewart remains without a win in Austria", while there is the cut to Stewart in the car.

Oh that's actually great stuff about Lauda being co-commentator, I'm collecting all sorts of information about broadcasts (see http://forums.autosp...overage-thread/ ), so thanks for that.

 

Anyway, the guy here seems to think it was practice as well http://www.aaformula...-formula-1.html

 

It's an interesting thing that all that footage existed in 1997 and that it was possible for Pruller to make that documentary. It's funny, because you'd think between 1997 and 2014 nothing would happen to wipe that stuff out, but as far as I know, ORF doesn't have anything from 1970-75 races apart from very short highlights. I guess that if there's anyone who'd know about whereabouts of any original broadcasts from ORF, that would be Pruller himself. I tried to contact him several times, but he either never got my mails or never replied to them.

Happy that this was helpful. Yeah, it's crazy that so little was kept on video as long as it was not high culture or politics. Sure video tape was expensive, but I always lived in the illusion that the TV stations - especially in a small country like Austria - would have had an inkling that some of the early TV footage of all kinds would be nation-defining and would keep this stuff. Oh well, different times. I guess we are lucky that we even have the clips he used in the documentary, and maybe that's all there is. Sad that you could not reach Prüller.

 

In general, if anyone wants translations or clarifications for the clip, PM me.

 

Edit: And thanks for the info about and in the coverage thread, great!

For those who haven't yet discovered it, Petrolicious features a fair amount of "tasty" content that might appeal to many here. Their videos are especially well done, often featuring significant classics, race cars, car collections and enthusiasts. The most recent one I feel is appropriate for posting here. Not to mention it being possibly better'n caffeine.

I've run a Search to see if this petrol commercial by Shell has been posted before, but nothing came up so perhaps it is, indeed, new to here.

 

Make sure the sound is turned up.

They were experimenting with Cinemascope to cover the race.

Apprently this was never issued, presumably due to the taint of the Levegh disaster

The aftermath of the accident is there too... in one scene you see three guys picking up shoes of victims... not a laughing matter.
