BRM V16 warming up
Warming up and towing on the Saturday 18th of September 2010 for the
Goodwood Revival meeting 2010 - collision, crash - narrow escape - spectacular driving!
Video by http://www.ClassicarGarage.nl Saturday September 18 2:50 PM -
During the Freddy March Memorial Trophy this Jaguar C-type driver had a
'slippery moment'. It looks like the Ferrari 166 MM just barely escapes a
severe crash. Looking closely at the video it seems that the Ferrari
touched the C-type with the left front into the driver door... Remember
these classic racers are worth millions!

The Sound of BRM V16 (In-Cabin clip included)
The Sound of BRM V16 F1 car. This was and still is a truly amazing car and
motor. Built in the late 1940's and early 1950's, the motor was an
approximately 1.5 liter(1487.76 CC) V16 fed by a Supercharger peaking at 5.7 bar(82.7 PSI) of Boost and revving to an astounding
12,000 RPMs and producing approximately 600 peak HP. I can honestly say
that this is the most beautiful sounding engine I have ever come across.
Some of the pictures in the video are not of the actual BRM V16 engine
itself or the same car producing these amazing sounds, so please do not use
those pictures as basis for comment on the motor design or layout.
I personally favor the In-Car portion of this video which starts at about
Ford GT40 Crash Goodwood Revival 2010
On the second lap at St Mary's corner Shaun Lynn in the Ford GT40 span and
came to a stop on the track where he was hit by the Lola Chevrolet T70
Syder of Paul Knapfield. The Ford continued but the rear pannels of the
Lola were so badly damaged he was forced to retire. Please see my other
videos from the Goodwood Revival.

Coverage of the 2010 Goodwood Revival RAC TT Celebration race. Nice to see
some Ferrari GTOs racing hard - and kicking some Cobra butt!
There were 4 GTOs and 4 250GTs in the race plus a couple of 330s and a 250
At 5:41 you will see the definition of a heart-attack moment: spinning
someone else's multi-million dollar 250 GTO/64 to the infield. Yikes!
