This is (if I got it right!) a film I made in 1973 at the German GP – this is the practice session – there is more to come if you like it!

Wow! Unbelievable race, who is this Mike Crabtree? I know of Jerry Marshall; and I didn't know that Martin Birrane was a pretty decent driver.

A lap of the old Sachsenring ( Well most of it, unfortunately they'd built the new track over the s/f straight by this point ). Amazing how accurate the GPL verson is.

Thanks lil'chris, yes the creators of Sachsenring did a great job. Still one of my all time favourite GPL tracks.

Sachsenring Rules!

Yes it was Beauchamp.
Not much more I am afraid - just the German GP (race) 1973 and also a motorcycle GP meeting (at Rungis, the Paris market!). Coming up as soon as I have a minute!

Here by popular demand is the German GP 1973 (The Race) – see Ronnie Peterson break down in front of the camera, see finally …. a FERRARI (had you forgotten?)…. a Helicopter (for Eric McLoughlin)… see Jackie Stewart and Cevert really pushing it on the first few laps, a brilliant Carlos Pace, Ickx in a McLaren, Lauda pressing hard for third place on the first lap, etc….

A tribute to the great Chris Amon!!! :clap: :clap:



Includes a few seconds of his scrap with Jo Siffert in 1968, and a brief clip of a 'mature' Chris at three minutes 22.

Hope it's not a repost - apologies if so.

You're welcome, Steve! Glad you enjoyed it.

Another of Chris's near misses here, Spa 1970 http://www.youtube.c...=rMjxnWs_VSY

Again, with apologies if it's a repeat, particularly to Stefan who has been kind in bringing lots to our attention.

I read recently that there was great suspicion surrounding Pedro's BRM engine in this race, allegedly a 3.3 litre, according to some sources... :eek: :eek:

Hi Barry

I quote from page 145 of 'Forza Amon':

"There was no way that the BRM could have been that fast" (in the race compared to practice).

"He (Chris) finished 1.1 seconds behind, in second place, not so secretly convinced that the BRM's surprising turn of speed was due to the use of a 3.3 litre engine."

And on page 223:

"Chris was convinced that the BRM had a big engine. No question. He and Stewart and Rindt had outqualified Rodriguez quite easily. Chris always thought it was a bit of a scam because Rodriguez passed him going up the hill from Eau Rouge. 'And he didn't even have the courtesy to tow me - he just drove past me!'"

So there! One for the pot - who knows the truth? Perhaps it's deserving of a separate thread, but it's probably been mentioned on the forum before somewhere. Maybe Keir or DCN can shed some light...?

SPA and the Belgian GP was a superb trip. I was in the open grandstand at the start. You had a great view of la Source and l'Eau Rouge plus the scoreboard that kept you abreast of what was happening out the back.

It was a sweltering hot day and that may well be the clue as to why the BRM breezed past Amon and the other DFV users, maybe the BRM performed better in hot conditions?

My You Tube favourites page is getting full as I not only added SPA but also spotted Hockenheim & Brands on the same page!

Moto Festival de Rungis 1972



This is the last of the series, more for motorbike fans perhaps! (I will post something in their thread).

I do not really know who any of the riders are, except that I believe they were the Continental Circus of the day and included Agostini, Pasolini, perhaps Barry Sheene? I would be interested to know who you can spot.

Every week-end in the early 70’s motorbike riders would flock to the Rungis market near Orly (which replaced Les Halles – which then became a deep pit for a number of years, and is now the Pompidou Centre – some people wish it had remained a pit). Every week-end evening they would organize completely unsanctioned races around the otherwise deserted streets of Rungis. Every Monday morning the obituary columns would be full of names of victims. In the end the authorities built a permanent circuit (called Carole) in the Paris suburbs.

I do not know if this (official) event at Rungis was ever organized again.

I am not really into motorbikes but I suppose I really wanted to try to capture the atmosphere – a sort of motorized Woodstock! Hence the presence of Jimi Hendrix!

I hope you enjoy it!

All the best
Marcus

Not from youtube, but the French INA (national TV archives) have some wonderful footage, like this fabulous period 20-minute documentary on French F3 mousquetaires of the late 1960s. All of it is in French of course, but you'll enjoy the 1967 Rouen GP on-the-grid-drivers-briefing with simoultaneous English translation for the foreigners :rotfl:

With unusual views at the Scierie turn at Rouen . The pictures at reims are also very good !

It's black and white with the real sound ( and a super riff guitar on the Monaco helicopter views... :stoned: )

Great post Frank, thanks! :up: Some interesting new angles on R(h)eims/Rouen/Monaco .

And Rosey - if you head to Brands Hatch on 3/4 November 2007 you'll see the British Truck Racing Association Truck Superprix. Think it might be an annual affair.

No TV coverage here as I recall, not really my cup of tea either.

Great stuff Henry :up:
So far as I can see the track hasn't changed although it has been a few years since I was there. The second scene where the cars are going right to left close to the camera is a the end of the long straight. There is a curve to the right before a sweeping left hander-the fast cars are going over 150 mph at they pass the camera.
