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 starting. Enjoy!
