Mallory Park, return of the Thundersaloons June 2011

What a morning! Baby Bertha, the Stars and Stripes Manta, the DAF V8, cars that were at their hayday, faster and noisier than any other saloons being raced. This gathering was a test & press day for the drivers and cars, in preparation for their comeback meeting on the August bank holiday weekend.

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.
