The Evolution Of The Drift Angle - 50 Years Sideways
If you're at all interested in the sport of rallying, and indeed sideways
motoring, then this is one documentary you shouldn't miss. It was created
by Helmut Deimel a few years ago now but it showcases 50 years of rally
motorsport all in one film.
Overall, some great footage is shown in the film including classic rally
imagery from the 1960s as well as ice rally footage from northern Europe.
The documentary also talks with some of the greatest rally drivers of all
time, such as Walter Rohrl, Stirling Moss and Timo Makinen, as well as
modern-day drivers such as Mika Hakkinen, Richard Burns and Juha Kankkunen.
The best aspect of the film though is that it features more than an hour of
sideways action from classic rally cars including the Mini Cooper, Porsche
911, Datsun 1600, Ford Escort, Audi Quattro and various Morris, Jaguar,
BMW, Citroen, Saab and Peugeot classics.

Goodwood Revival 2010, St Mary's Trophy, Race One
Race one of the St Mary's Trophy for saloon cars raced between 1950 and
1959. Martin Brundle was the highlight of the race for me, moving up from
4th place to challenge for the lead in his Austin A35 (car# 1), before
contact with the leader punctured a tyre and ultimately put him out of the
race. His efforts were more than appreciated by the crowd though! Tom
Kristensen took the victory in his first visit to the Revival (driving an
Austin A95 Westminster), after a good race with Patrick Watts (in the Volvo
Amazon 122S) was cut short by mechanical failure.
