A friend found this 8 mm classic recently and Youtubed it.

Geoghan's Cortina GT, Foley's Mini etc. A real time piece, I seem to recall the M.G. and it's side was Gricey, the usual FJ mayhem is there and the circuit environs are quite different to 2009. The original pre BP Corner circuit is visible across to the start/ finish line........John

Glad you liked the old film, here's a link to the raw version, shows some additional footage, includes Brian Muir's S4 dicing with Ian Geoghan's Cortina GT, no sound on this one........John
