NAZI GRAND PRIX Richard Seaman and the Silver Arrows (on TV 12th Jan 2004)
Grand Prix motor racing in the late 1930s was dominated by the German Auto Union and Mercedes teams. With massive financial backing from a propaganda-conscious Nazi government, the Silver Arrows were hugely successful. Amongst the drivers of these technologically advanced cars was a young Englishman, Richard Seaman. One of Britain's greatest racing drivers ever. Seaman was almost erased from history when he left British motor-sport and chose to race for the German Mercedes team at the height of the Third Reich. http://www.sportscardigest.com/richard-seaman-driver-profile/





THE GRAND PRIX CAR 1945-1965 - PART 3/3 (UK Channel 4 1988)
The Funny Cars - about the domination of the british mid-engined green funny cars - after MB withdraws, the italian domination resumes but some funny cars unlike anything seen since before WWII apear - 1959 the front engined brigade headed by Ferrari (but also including Aston-Martin, BRM) don't seem able to keep up with some small underpowered funny cars powered a water-pump engine positioned in the wrong place - 1960 the "revolution continues" the funny cars from Cooper (T51, and new T53) and now also Lotus (the mark 19; with fully adjustable suspensions) now totally destroy the stubborn front engined boys; - but the lack of reliability from Lotus means that Cooper cars dominate even moreso then in 1959 - for those not driving a mid-engined car the situation is completly hopeless - 1961 Monaco, a new 1.5 litre NA formula, almost the entire field of funny cars, the "revolution" has triumphed - 1964/65 talks about a new formula - the return to power





Triumph Story
The Triumph Motor Company was a British car and motor manufacturing company. The Triumph marque (trade-name) is owned currently by BMW. The marque had its origins in 1885 when Siegfried Bettmann (1863--1951) of Nuremberg initiated S. Bettmann & Co and started importing bicycles from Europe and selling them with his own trade-name in London. The trade-name became "Triumph" the year next, and in 1887 Bettmann was joined by a partner, Moritz (Maurice) Schulte, also from Germany. Beginning in 1889 the businessmen started producing their own bicycles in Coventry, England. In November 1944 what was left of the Triumph Motor Company and the Triumph trade-name were bought by the Standard Motor Company and a subsidiary "Triumph Motor Company (1945) Limited" was formed with production transferred to Standard's factory at Canley, on the outskirts of Coventry. The pre-war Triumph models were not revived and in 1946 a new range of Triumphs was announced, starting with the Triumph Roadster. The Roadster had an aluminium body because steel was in short supply and surplus aluminium from aircraft production was plentiful. In the early 1950s it was decided to use the Triumph name for sporting cars and the Standard name for saloons and in 1953 the Triumph TR2 was initiated, the first of a series that would be produced until 1981.

Triumph GT6 MK3 vintage race car part 1
A tour of the GT6 race car engine bay , part 1. Visit http://www.austinhealeywood.com/brakelines.html for information on the copper nickel brake line kits that I mentioned in the video. I will be adding part 2 of this video next week. My friend and I built this vintage race car over the course of several years. It may have been raced in Canada when it was new, but I have very little information about it's history. The engine was built to be reliable so that we could sort out the car on track. It could certainly make more power by increasing the compression ratio and doing a few other things. It has been very reliable so far. I drive a street GT6 and I can tell you that there is no comparison between the stock engine and this one. This engine revs very freely and is still making power up to the rev limiter (7000 RPM). This is due to all of the work done on the head, the Exhaust header and the weber carb setup.

Vintage Racing Crash Roll cages are good
This is Mark with Zapata in second place of the last race at Roebling Road. Listen close and you can hear his rear axle snap. At that point he can't do anything but hold on. Mark is fine. This is a good reason to over build safety into any racecar. We are making a Documentary movie about vintage racing. Go to www.vintageracingtoday.com for more info. It comes out Summer 2012. We are following six drivers from Nashville for a year making a film about Vintage Racing. Mark the driver in this video is one of those drivers. Go to www.vintageracingtoday.com to see the movie trailer.
