Question..................can anyone identify the Dave MacDonald Cobra in the video?

Not sure which Cobra he was driving at this particular event. Would like to provide this link to the family if we can identify.

Thanks,
Henry

A good friend of mine attended this race and claims to have the program stashed away in his archives. I'll ask him if he can locate it. Hopefully the entry numbers in the program can help to identify MacDonald's car.

Just had a look at my Shelby Registry and found that Dave Macdonald raced Cobra number 97 (BLACK) in the race at Kent, Washington. Chassis # CSX2128. Bob Holbert raced the black Cobra number 99 chassis#CSX2127.
Ken Miles was in the red Cobra number 98 chassis#CSX2129. Paul

Claude Lelouch at the wheel... of a Mercedes :) with Ferrari sound overdubbed. 1976, "Rendez-vous". A nice trip in the old Paris as it will never be again. But a dangerous trip too.

I apologise if this has been posted before, or if everybody's already seen it, but the 1979 British Motorcycle GP was truly sensational.

The wonderful, late Barry Sheene giving Kenny Roberts the finger on the run down to Becketts was amazing, as was the more or less constant duelling for position... It's a real shame there isn't more footage from old motorcycle racing freely available (at least to my knowledge).

And, AIRPS has added over 300 each here for simple viewing in two categories.

We encourage everyone to add more.

WOW!

Those really were different times.

Lawn chairs right at the edge of the track... Lounging on the grass at the exit of a corner... Woods & trees at the edge of the track...

I am busy sorting out a collection of mostly amateur films of the Monaco GP which I was “given” by Yves Naquin when I helped him to translate his book “Story of a legend” into English in 1990.
This film is more professional than most and I think it might be of interest. If you have read Innes Ireland’s book “All arms and elbows” you will remember the incident where he had to push his Lotus to the finish line in the 1960 Monaco GP. I happened to meet Innes at the “Anciens Pilotes” party given to launch the book at the GP in 1990 and told him I had found a film of this “incident” and he asked me to send him a copy. I later got a very nice letter from him to thank me and to say that it had brought back some very exhausting memories.





All the best
Marcus

According to his book he thought he could restart it on the downhill bit (as you can see he looked under the engine cover in case it was something obvious, like a plug lead) found he could not and since he was by then back on the sea front he thought he had better push it all the way back (including through the tunnel) and wait for the finish. I think there were not many cars running by that time. I believe he actually finished 6th overall but was not classified as he had not covered the minimum distance.

Nowadays the biggest effort the drivers make after their car breaks down is to throw away their steering wheels in disgust and jump on a moped!

Glad you liked it. More coming!

Marcus

Not really, Marcus, the car is half way up the Beau Rivage - at least 150 metres from Casino Square. That's one hell of an uphill push until you get to the top of the slope down to Mirabeau.

It must have taken him ages.

So it wasn't just Moss who pulled the pushing trick, then.

Could this make an amusing thread: Racings Greatest Pushes...?

Moss certainly did this more than a couple of times in his career.

Presumably nowadays the practice, even if the driver wanted to do it, would be banned on safety grounds: probably quite rightly.

I'm surprised we have not by now had a list of the cars in the - highly eclectic - showroom. They just don't build them like they used to, do they?

I'm not a Ferrari enthusiast (is that a heresy on this forum?) so I don't know which Ferrari it was, but I did like the BMW Isetta.

The lady in the bra (they don't build 'em like they used to, do they?) BTW is Cara Williams and the bloke, of course, Jimmy Cagney.

Lovely clip, Kurt :up: :)

Waste of time anyway, Mal. If a modern F.1 car stops, chances are it would have to be lifted away. No doubt some hydraulic system would lock everything up and anyway, why would a zillion dollar a year prima donna want to push when he can get someone to do it for him? :smoking:

Yes indeed, Barrry. Probably find it had been remotely locked, as well. I was told, by an unimpeachable source, that in the final throes of the Williams-BMW partnership any time the Williams mechanics wanted to start one of the engines for testing, someone had to phone Munich to get them to unlock (or, presumable more correctly, enable) the engine's electronic management system so that the thing could be fired-up.

In the Monaco series – a film shot (by ?) during the very wet F3 race held in 1972. This saw the victory of Patrick Depailler over Tony Trimmer and Colin Vandervell. Colin started well back but he and Trimmer had a tyre advantage and closed right up on Depailler. Colin was held up by Andy Sutcliffe for a number of laps, otherwise he felt he could have won. There was a big fuss after the race as the organisers could not be persuaded to check the air box on the Alpine. The Alpine mechanics had to be present and mysteriously could not be found...

All the best

This short film shows the pre-qualifying session at the Monaco GP 1978. It includes Keke Rosberg in a Theodore! To make the session even more fun for the drivers, the Monaco authorities would have washed the track early in the morning – this is why it looks damp!
You can see Rolf Stommelen (n.36 Arrows) – not sure who the others are.

Here is the rest of the Monaco GP 1960 film, the same as the one with the Ireland incident.
Is it Lucien Bianchi the mechanic looking after Trintignant’s Centro Sud Cooper?

Part 1



Part 2



A BRM gets cut off in this one as well - but the driver did it this time!

This was the qualifying session in 1963 – most of the cars shown at the end did not qualify, in particular Jonathan Williams’ Merlyn Mk5 which is shown in kit form.

Here we have:

Monaco 1965



Monaco 1966 – I rather like this one. There are some splendid shots of Jim Clark. He is last away at the start (he was on pole!) then he really charges. Apparently he got back into 3rd, then had to retire with a broken rear upright. Whoever made this film had several cameras around the track. A good effort!

I have found an extra bit for the Monaco GP 1967 so I have downloaded it again. This version includes Hulme taking the flag, the winner’s parade lap and a sombre shot of Bandini’s Ferrari being hoisted away.



The 1963 race – not very good, but some interesting close ups at the end including Mairesse’s Ferrari.



1970 – these seem to be the qualifying sessions – one in the wet. Car 20 is Servoz-Gavin in his last drive before walking away. 15 is George Eaton (BRM).



1972 – some nice paddock shots, the young Lauda, is that Tony Southgate driving a BRM?

I'm not sure if the times given at forix as "1st free" http://www.forix.com...19690003007&c=0 are the Thursday times, but I do remember that Stewart was clearly fastest that day. IIRC Tyrrell/Matra was the only team complaining on Friday against the wing ban, because they said they had the only really new car (MS80) that was constructed with wing development in mind - Lotus, McLaren, Brabham, Ferrari and BRM all brought more or less updated pre-wing era 1968 chassis to Monaco with the wings simply fixed to it, just like the year before. IIRC Tyrrell/Matra said they didn't know how their car would behave without wings....

The late Chris Nixon and myself (Jock Simpson) set up Terrific Stuff. The footage on YouTube comes from "The Gulf Wyer 917s & GT40s" (now available on DVD). Chris had a brilliant relationship with Mercedes and Audi/Auto Union which resulted in two DVD titles "Racing The Silver Arrows" and "The Return of The Silver Arrows". These are also on DVD. These were made with Mercedes and Audi/Auto Union full permission and we had access to both Archives. for more information see www.terrificstuff.co.uk
We were unimpressed seeing the footage on YouTube and are currently tackling them to get it removed. Up until now I hadn't thought of it as free promotion !!
