Fair play midgrid, that is one of the most pleasant few minutes of my year so far!

 

Wish there was more of this kind of thing on youtube!  Cant believe the speed these guys were taking Paddock, I know ground effect was amazing, but Dear god they were fast

Just stumbled on this old late-1980s documentary whilst looking for something completely different, so different I'm not sure why it came up...

Not sure if this has been posted and it probably has but 25 minutes of David Purley driving a brand-spanking-new F5000 Chevron around Oulton Park:

 

 

Got that cool "gee shucks what's this racin' stuff all about? Isn't that dangerous and glamorous?" feel to it.

Looking at the road signs, it doesn't look much like 1953 to me.

Barry I agree..The in-car is too 'perfect'?? And the sound maybe real, but manipulated???

Questions...Michael

Very clever but unless Lewis Hamilton got his hands on a V16 over the winter it must surely be a fake. Modern road signs and snow on the road are possible clues. Jenks had a road outing in a Lotus 12 on Christmas Day 1957 but you'd probably get life for such a stunt these days. Especially if you got further than the first bend (unlikely from everything I've ever heard about the V16).

I'm pretty sure that's a real sound track, but non-original film. A bit of creative dubbing.

I can see nothing on the film to suggest it is filmed from a single-seater, let alone a V16 BRM. Simply an overlaid soundtrack. To be fair, it doesn't suggest it was filmed in 1953, it simply states '1953 V16 BRM'

This is mainly on Red Bull Audi (Carlos Sainz) beating the 'record' of Sitges Terramar (Spain), but it contains also news reel material on the GP of 1923 (ca 1min 10 following), and shots of the track today:

 

 

 

 

 

 

..and the homepage: http://www.autodromodeterramar.com/ contains photographs (old) and two videos on the racetrack....

I stumbled upon the old Look at Life clips a few days ago. Nostalgia, history and unadulterated corn. Marvellous! 

 

 

 

To my shame, I can't believe that I'm unable to recall seeing them when they were new. Exactly the era in which I was inhabiting the Odeon at High Wycombe on a regular basis! 

 

For something that covers an era (and a place) that's still so familiar to me it's a mixture of astonishing and slightly cringeworthy to reflect of how much things - and values - have changed.

Gary, thanks for this; what a fascinating short film.

I remember the Autocar summary of the Buchanan report showing proposed high level London fly-overs around the Euston Road / Bloomsbury area.  I think it's better without them!  Perhaps the congestion charge / improved public transport is a better approach to an almost insuperable problem.

And those Cumbernauld clips....Gregory's Girl!
