Ricky Parker-Morris-309 Vs Paul Sibley-Elan Vs Joe Ward-Baby Bertha @ Snetterton 2013
Judgement Day!! Ricky Parker-Morris starts from the back of the grid for the final round of the CSCC Special Saloon Series @ Snetterton 2013 after a weekend of problems and bad weather. Turn up the sound, sit back, and enjoy it like we did on the day... This is an epic made possible by the mighty Ray Addis of Meryworth Services who managed to resurrect the Thundersaloon 309 Cosworth from a traumatic differential explosion whilst testing on the Friday previous, causing the diff to dump its contents and get rather hot and wobble ! Friday night and the Saturday saw Ray and the team (Mad Alex Goody-Brake Tech, Danny- No:1 Driver, Ricky- Logistics and No:2 Driver, Nicky- Physio & Catering, Helena-Mum & Sponsor, Chris- Main Sponsor- Holmes Seafood and JD- Transport & Entertainment, miraculously rebuild the differential from spare tractor parts loaned by local farmers along with free milk heated up to get us through the night ! All was good for the Sunday with two races, yes two races to test the car once again and pitch their skills against the awesome and mighty field of Special Saloons, but rain fell moments before the first race in the morning and Ricky was blinded by the spray and fogged up screen to such a point he had retire to the pits in fear of his life ! Danny felt brother Ricky had been under dealt with poor luck over the season and kindly handed him the final race of the year to prove the point of Team 309... With an earlier DNF, Ricky was demoted yet again to the back of the grid so the adrenaline began to flow, and flow it did indeed!! We don't want to spoil your fun so just click and play and the rest is history, but before you experience this 2013 epic we want you to know that without the other competitors in the CSCC Special Saloon Series video like this simply isn't possible to a special thanks to all the other drivers for the year, especially the talented and wise Paul Sibley and Joe Ward who drive like gentlemen which proves it can be done at speeds in excess of 150mph without a scratch even!!

Occasionally revived. Much missed" Daily Telegraph "You can just imagine the classic capers involving the likes of Graham Hill, Roger Clark, James Hunt and Tony Pond. Watch this film and see if you're right" Autosport "Brilliant" Classic and Sports Car This DVD brings together action-packed footage of some of the greatest racing drivers and rally stars doing battle around Britain in standard family saloons. The Avon Tour of Britain was designed to put ordinary cars, straight from the showroom, to the ultimate test on racetracks and rally stages during a 1,000-mile journey. Over three years, the Tour attracted the biggest names in motorsport, including Formula One greats Graham Hill, James Hunt and Jody Scheckter and rally stars like Roger Clark, Tony Pond and Andrew Cowan. They could not resist the challenge of fast and furious competition in standard saloons on iconic race circuits, including Silverstone, Oulton Park and Snetterton, and demanding special stages, including the always challenging Welsh mountains. Theres even a drag race at Santa Pod in the first year! All the major motor manufacturers were determined to prove their machines had the reliability, performance and style to survive hundreds of miles of tough driving by some of the toughest drivers in the business. Datsun brought its Bluebirds, Ford the Escorts and Capris, Triumph had its Dolomite Sprint and Vauxhall the Magnum. Rover were there, along with Mazda, Lada and BMW, plus, of course, the Americans got in on the act with the awesomely powerful Chevrolet Camaro. The classic confrontations between race and rally greats in standard road cars makes for compelling viewing, the driving geniuses power sliding these family favourites around Cadwell and Mallory Park, before switching to the grass, gravel and grit of rallying. Avon Tour of Britain 1973-75 brings you all the action from each year. In fact, this DVDs coverage is so comprehensive it features not one, but two films about the incredible 1974 event! "For three years in the mid-1970s, the Tour of Britain pitted stars of racing and rallying against each other in races and rallies around the country. You can just imagine the classic capers involving the likes of Graham Hill, Roger Clark, James Hunt and Tony Pond. Watch this film and see if you're right" Autosport "This brilliant DVD comprising four 1973-75 films (112 mins in total) chronicles one of Britain's best motor sport events. F1 aces such as Hill and Hunt took on rally legends Roger Clark, Pond et al in caged-up, bog-standard motors at the UK's greatest venues" Classic and Sports Car We're on INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/2evtvsg Like us on FACEBOOK: http://bit.ly/2dKA2eQ Follow us on TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2evt6Gv
