Mallory Park Modsports & Supersaloons 290811
Movie I made at the CSCC Modsports and Super Saloons Revival Challenge
meeting at Mallory Park on 29/08/2011. Features;
Jeff Wilson and his team fettle the ex-Mick Hill VW Bug V8, they never did
solve the problem causing a viscous weave underbraking. David Tetley and
his crew warm the "Stars and Stripes" Opel Manta 400-Pontiac V8; Thomas
Carey warming the Imp Californian; Bill Richards warming his Rover Metro;
Bernie Chodosh warming his Chevy Corvette; Joss Ronchetti in the Sunbean
Talbot Lotus. Then out for practice, footage from session two. Then lunch
and the rain comes down, first race is a wet start, Mike Wilds in Daf-ne
takes off, Pete Edwards comes through in the Escort Mk2 class-B
Thundersaloon to take the win on a greasy track. Race two is much faster, Simon Allaway (lotus Silouette) and
Pete Stevens (Sertec Carlton TS) having a real battle. Michael Bell the the
"Lairy Canary" Escort has a big moment, Lee Costello in the other black
Escort (V8 power in this one) comes through before it throws the cooling
belt. Unfortunately the camera stopped then, just as the fun was really
F1 1975 Shadow DN7 w/Matra V-12 Engine
First day on track in 39 years! Last event was the US GP at Watkins Glen in
1975. After being in storage and the Donington Grand Prix museum since
then, the car has been restored and is being prepared for historic F1
This is a roll out test day and not full speed.
1972 Matra Simca MS670C Howling V12 Sound at Le Mans (Accelerations & Fast Flyby)
The howling V12 3.0 litre of the Matra MS670C driving at the legendary
circuit of Le Mans during the Le Mans Classic, the most beautiful historic
car racing event of 2014!
This car captured my attention every single time it drove by. It has a
beautiful, howling-like sound. While a lot of other cars produce a very
heavy sound, the sound of this car was very high pitched, resulting in a
sound that could be heard from hundreds of metres away! For example when
the Matra is surrounded by other cars like the Lola T70 or a bunch of
Stingrays, you hear the Lolas and the Stingrays in the beginning, but once
all the cars pull away it's the sound of the Matra that 'takes the floor'
so to speak. You just keep hearing it making its way through the woods of
So definetely one of my favorite cars of the weekend! I never ever saw this
car before in real life, or at least not driving but I wasn't surprised it
made such a beautiful sound! A sound which I'm glad I can share with you
