Indeed, Jonsie and Brian McGuire shared a house in Chiswick, selling VW buses to the green Aussies arriving in the UK. They along with Alan McCulley (a Kiwi) travelled around in an orange converted bus as 'AIRO', sometime their mechanisc (name eludes me) would run a BT21 also.

The whole surrounding block was a sea of VWs, the 'story' was that the boys themselves had just finished a European tour and were selling their VW before returning home, they advertised on the bulletin board at Australia House

WDC-champion-to-be Alan Jones. I bet there was some fruity language.

He was a big lad even then....

Apologies if these have been posted before, but it just illustrates how lucky those of us who were growing up with this quality of motor racing in the late 60's early 70's, a golden era.

On August 9-11, at the British Columbia Historic Motor Races at Mission, BC, we will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the opening of the Westwood track in 1959.  I found a few things on Youtube:

 

A couple of links with photos from the early Westwood days.  The first one has many photos from opening day.  But no, Pedro Rodriguez never drove a Ferrari there.

 

 

 

And video of the Players/GM race at the last weekend at Westwood in 1990.  When the winner, Spenard, is being interviewed at the end, my son Brian (age 9) is sitting on the guardrail behind him.  Brian just turned 38.  After that, I am handing the microphone to Spenard on the podium.

A documentary with voice-off in Portuguese about the Circuito da Boavista international races of 1956. You can skip the first 5 minutes, it is about Oporto city, though it is interesting to see everybody in suit and tie attending the race. Salvadori and De Portago featuring amongst the locals.

A brilliant but mixed bag of motor sport including Redex Trial and gymkhana along with racing at Longford and Albert Park.

Longford action appears to be the Tasmanian Trophy 1955 with the Anzani Bugatti, Cisitalia and Tom Hawkes Allard all present.

Ian Tate's Prefect Special is also prominent.

A glimpse of how things were.

 Not actually the Gold Cup but the Spring Trophy held on 9 April . My first ever F1 race , and one the Barbour clad marshals at  Deer Leap was me . Weird soundtrack- certainly not DFVs and a BRM

I think that's 1966, the footage features on an old VHS covering the 1966 race.

The clincher is that the famous turn 4 infield tree is missing.

Last year, Dann Boeschen brought his Porsche 906 from California to our BC Historic Races at Mission, BC.  He towed the car up on an open trailer behind his Porsche Cayenne.  He doesn't have a race license now, so he let Kees Nierop and Ian Wood drive it in demo laps.  Fellow announcer David Kincaid did this very nice piece:

 

 

We will be celebrating "Westwood 60" this year with the BCHMR at Mission, August 9-11.

The below video contains a radio report of the 1977 Belgium GP from 29:14 onwards. Amusing parallel to this weekends race that they still weren't sure of the final positions sometime after the race had finished.

Yesterday Peter Hickman took Dundrod back to the top of the fastest current motorcycle road race tracks at 136.415 MPH average to beat his 135.452 mph lap set on the Isle of Man last year .

 

This is from BBC iPlayer Northern Ireland so some people may not be able to see it.

A rather patronising Australian-made report on the Mahagastota Hill Climb in Sri Lanka. However, it does include some brief home movie footage of the 1939 running, plus a bit about the locally-built Magpie Special (based on an MG - perhaps a PA?).

Since quite a lot of what's shown of the Magpie is Lea-Francis rather than MG I admit I'm confused.

The enthusiasm for motor sport in Ceylon/Sri Lanka was pretty wide-spread and a number of years ago I met a Sri Lankan who after graduating at Cambridge had been in England during the war doing something that entitled him to petrol for his Bentley!

He (https://en.wikipedia...eyesekere_III) was pleased to tell me that he was one of the CUAC people who got the aerodrome at Gransden Lodge used for the first post-war race meeting.

Have just seen this on YouTube - good heavens above...  So soon after the tragic Hubert/Correa collision on the Raidillon crest during the opening GP2 race at Spa, this extraordinary failure of track inspection confronted Alex Perone in GP3 at Monza.  OK - he should not have so exceeded track limits, but the penalty was somewhat extreme...  Can anyone recall a higher/longer flight?  Mario Andretti's at Indy 2003?

Blimey. I'd heard mention of an F3 accident, and 'sausage kerbs', but I hadn't seen anything until this. Had the kerb been dislodged previously, or was it in place and designed to do serious damage to a car straying from the track limits? Crazy either way, and very fortunate that Perone wasn't more seriously hurt.

Thanks Chris, that's a wonderful film, well made, and a very effective mix of reminiscences, those of local enthusiasts, course officials, and of drivers too.  Good to see Jacques Laffite still battling away, and very thoughtful contributions from Jacky Ickx and Jean-Louis Schlesser. And film of  'Uncle Jo' too, talking with such enthusiasm back in 1968, shortly before his horrible accident.

Milling through the pits at Montreal in '78, I saw a driver I didn't know of.

Thinking him a Formula Ford driver, I asked what he was racing and he said "Surtees."

Suddenly feeling quite a bit shorter than he, I asked his name. "Arnoux" -- with a big smile.
