A montage of my 1999 season at Lydden racing a 2.6 litre dry-sumped works DTV Lotus Chevette. Approx 260bhp, 820kgs. There are three classes in each race, hence the slower, lower-spec cars out there with us. I finished second in the championship.
Lydden Final - Multiple crashes
Sunday's Lydden Final was pretty much a disaster. I get tangled up in a
fairly large startline shunt. With a bit of help from Richard Kingsnorth
(who went out avoiding the shunt, my dad and Dave Wright), I manage to
make the restart - minus all of my front end panels. The 2nd restart is
equally as bad, I get helped into a half spin at the first corner, from in
front and behind - and then hit in the rear...... The old crate holds
together and we make the chequered flag. One interesting 'moment' on the
track ahead of me - quite a 'have that' moment....
'Got a Vette' video original lo res version
This is my first music video of a car that I smashed up. This was filmed
by Tim E. and my brother Mike with an analog Hi8 camera... I wish there was
a better way to do the slow motion jump with that old equipment, but that's
the way it goes. I edited the video and then wrapped the song around the
sequences. Those were the good old days!
