Thundersaloon Crash

In honour of the re-union race at Mallory Park this coming 28/29 August (get your butts down there!) here is the tiny bit of footage I have of Thundersallons/Silhouette racing. I loved these cars and races as a marshall, well behaved drivers, spectacular cars, fast and noisy, just what we want! First clip has Tony Sugden's Skoda and Mick Hill's March BMW (anyone confirm/disagree?) arguing over the same bit of Thruxton tarmac, big spin for Tony. Next its a Class-B Silhouette race at Brands and a fast starting Toyota Sarlet knuts the Brands bank. Then off to Donington and a race I was at, hence the brief pause, that's me on the wall on the right. The cars are Pete Steven's works Carlton leading from the Wilson/Birley Armour-All RX7, Whale/Hodgetts ex-BTCC Supra (now with a proper gearbox, lol), Wallace Sierra ?, Dell/Boarer Sarlet, Maries/Nash Holden, Chatfield BMW M3, Jackson/Liles Astra, Morris/Morris 309GTi, Morton & Bridger/Mortlock Sarlets, McLaird yellow 205. Awesome cars. The Cunnigham/Chalmes Manta spins at Redgate and gets a whack from John Quartermayne in the SD1, then Morris spins the 309. Stevens lost the race to the RX7 when a wheel bearing went South, hence all the smoke. Next its Brands and a rear view from the Stevens GM Carlton of Ron Cumming's Aberlan Honda Legend, I remember Tony Wolf running a white Legend as well, same car different owners and paint? We then see a very rare spin from Stevens when he has to slow to avoid the ex-Sean Walker BTCC Sierra RS500. Anyone else have footage of these awesome machines, let me know, and see you at Mallory next weekend.

British F3 Crash 1998
Apologies for the poor picture quality, bad reception where I was living in 97-99. Commentary mainly by Paul Musselle, and a good excitable job he does, far better than any current Sky/Eurosport commentator in my opinion.
