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.

Thundersaloons Race at Castle Combe 1990
A superb lead battle between the awesome Pontiac V8 powered Sierra "Black Thunder" of Cox and Farmer and the similarly V8 powered Honda Legend of Nicholls & Woolf at the fast and bumpy Castle Combe circuit. The third placed "Vauxhall Senator" is a re-badged 5 litre Holden Commodore VK which had been raced at Bathurst by Peter Brock. A much missed class of racing in Britain.

Sportscar Random Crash
**This is version2 of this film, I found an extra bit to include**. Here is a varied collection of various sportcar series, more interesting than spectacular. Starting with the best racing sportscars ever, the Group 7, with a spinning McLaren M6 and Chevron at a wet Silverstone, and moving to a historic race from Donington with I believe Charlie Agg having trouble getting the awesome M12 back in line after a spin trying a pass a Lola. A rare outside of France trip for the Peugeot Spiders to Silverstone in 1992, the BBC were there, was this race a GP support race? Commentator is Brian Jones. Also here are various Gentleman's series, including the Venturi, Lamborghini, Ferrari and Maserati versions, the full series were rarely covered just races that fitted in with international series on the same weekend. The Ghibli race is from the short-lived Helsinki street circuit, supporting the F3000 and FIA GT series.
