He's some footage of some of the best race cars ever to grace the UK race circuits since slick tyres came along! 1994 shows a couple of ex-Thundersaloon series Escort Cossies in trouble along with the Ferguson Porsche 924 turbo, and Marcos LM600's. I short shot of Thorkild Thyrring spinning the Pantera GT5 he shared with Win Percy, then on a few years to 1998-1999 and superb clips of McLaren F1 GTR's, Porsche 911-GT1's, Harrier GT1-98's & LR9's, Lister Storm GTL's, Chrysler Viper GTSR, Venturi LM's, Ford Saleen Mustang, Porsche 935, Marcos LM500, Mirage GT1, Allen Lloyd's Jag XJ220 and the unique Quaife R4 GTS and in the pits the TVR Speed 12. No clips of the Sintura S99 unfortunately or the moment at Thruxton when the Speed 12's bonnet decided to head for the clouds, must have written over that sometime in the past. Any cars or drivers you want identifying pls let me know.
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.
Back to the real worl, some clips from Historic racing, starting with the late and much missed Tom Wheatcroft spinning his BRM V16, some Touring Cars from Donington, and events at Silverstone and Goodwood. Enjoy

Vmax er med ude og kører en lille tur i en TVR med Corvette LS3 motor. Læs hele artiklen i Vmax nr. 153
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.
Austin Healey 3000 at Oporto Boavista Circuit
A video from Jeremy Welch's on-board camera - driving his Austin Healey 3000, KVS 484 in the Masters Gentleman Drivers qualifying session.
KVS was first on the track closely followed for the whole session by the Lotus Elan of Sean walker and Ian Flux. Watch out on the 2nd lap for the Corvette who has clearly forgotten where his mirrors are , when exiting the pit lane!
British GT Crash at Brands Hatch
A Huge Accident at Brands Hatch during the British GT Round. It involves Boyzone Singer Shane Lynch in the Heavily Damaged Car. Stick to Singing......... Then Again.......... Lol....
XJ220 GT WIN AT LE MANS, 1993, COULTHARD, BRABHAM, NIELSEN
Footage from the 1993 Le Mans 24 hours, focusing on the Jaguar XJ220 entry. Jaguar won the GT class with car number 50, driven by David Coulthard, David Brabham and John Nielsen. Footage includes racing action and interviews with the drivers and pit-crew as the 24 hours unfolds.
As (bad) luck would have it, Jaguar committed a procedural error relating to the use of catalytic converters and were actually disqualified months after the event.
MG TF Crash 1998
Some MG action for you, a couple of clips of the old MG Metro turbo series, the first featuring David Leslie in the dark blue car, then a clip of MG Maestro racing, and then onto the 1998 MG TF series. Sorry for the dodgy quality, bad reception at the time of filming. 1999 season clips to follow, enjoy!
Trophe Andros Crash
And now for something completely different, Trophe Andros ice racing from France. Never a favourite of mine, rallycross with less overtaking and less car washing needed afterwards. A big event in France, it attracts a number of well known names, such as Jaques Laffite who features in the first clip. Unfortunately most of this is commentated by Mark Cole, so we here his notorious "and.....two or three cars involved" bit of commentary that basically means "damn, lost my place in the script again". If anyone know the bit of guitar music from 2:40 to 3:35 I'd be interested to know what it is, thanks.
