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.
Austin 7 box saloon 1934 Home restoration 1983/84
Home Video (1983/84) of restoration of our 1934 Box saloon, bought as a
Complete and utter wreck! and we slowly (My Mum Dad and myself) restored
her back to her former glory, near concours!. This was our first (and last
restoration!) I remember It was great fun sourcing all the "correct" parts
for her from Autrojumbles etc.(so many parts fitted on her were incorrect
and "make do" by previous owners!) Preparing/Painting/Chroming etc etc! I
appologise that this video is 22 minutes long!, (and being a bit slow at
times!) but I havent had time to edit it! So I think for three complete
amateurs we didnt do a bad job!
Extra praise also goes to my Mum (unfortunately now not with us so I cant
joke and insult her anymore! as I do in the video! (Love you Mum!X). and my
Dad (who IS with us!!) who both did all the interior in particular and the
horrible sun roof and headlining.(ha! I got out of that!)
Note I changed the registration number twice during the restoration 7 EUK
(non original number) to 161F (1GIF) (No I never noticed the bolt in the
six officer!) Great memories of 1984!

Morris Minor 1000 1957
This is Mo, my 1957 Morris Minor 1000. She has the 948cc engine which runs
as sweet as a nut. Working trafficators that look fantastic, she is
generally a very nice solid Morris minor.

THE BEST OF MOTORING IN THE THIRTIES
To buy the DVD go to http://www.motorfilms.com
A compilation of classic original travelogues from the Austin and Morris
Archives re-mastered for DVD.
The 1930s was an era when motoring was still fun. Small cars such as the
Austin Seven and the Morris Minor carried a modest price tag and brought
motoring within the reach of the middle classes for the first time. They
celebrated the freedom this relatively new form of transport gave them by
exploring the length and breadth of the British Isles.
These charming travelogues, produced by Morris Motors and the Austin Motor
Company, were intended to demonstrate the virtues of their products. Along
the way they captured a snapshot of Thirties Britain - its scenery, its
people, and its way of life. So jump into the passenger seat and take a
trip back in time, through the picturesque villages of England, up into the
magnificent mountains of Scotland, and past the impressive monuments of

Worst Figure 8 Crash @ Slinger Super Speedway Ever!!!!! 9/11/2011
This is a video of the worst figure 8 Crash Ever @ Slinger Super Speedway.
Ryan Lovald just bought Shane the Shark Beckers car and this was the first
race racing that car. Ryan Lovald hit Rick Bruskiewicz right behind the
Right Front Tire and Ryan Rolls. BOTH DRIVERS WALKED AWAY. You can here a
scream right as the hit happens. That was Nicki, Ryans Fiance. You can see
a black smoking dot to the right of Ryans car as well that is his motor,
the motor came out of the car. Ryan was wearing his INTERSECTION CONNECTION
shirt he just made up as well. That was a connection. Ryans knee was
hurting and Rick had a small cut. What happened with me in the race was
going into turn 3, Bill Shavlik ran into me and knocked my car into neutral
which you will here on the in car camera video, I then tried to move up the
track to get out of the way and Scott Goetzke was going around me which I
didnt see, We joked before the race about hitting eachother and me getting
even from the beginning of the year, I never knew he was there. He then
slammed me a few times before spinning out and hitting the rollover ramp. I
would have done the same thing to him if the tables were turned there so I
understood why he hit me back. I then pulled up next to him at the start
finish line. We talked and I explained what happened in my car. Scott
understood and we shook hands. No big deal there. Its funny now cause
everyone thought myself and Scott were fighting but we were really just
talking about what actually happened and getting on the same page. I want
to thank everyone that was a fan of the cop car. I will most likely not be
driving it next year and it is sold. I know pretty much everyone just likes
the car and doesnt even know who I am so you will be happy to know it will
be coming back as the cop car next year, just with a different driver. It
was a blast and I might do this again in the future but for now I'm done. I
want to thank my sponsors that have been with me from the beginning of me
racing. Guerndt's Bar in St. Lawrence, Keiths Marina, Kettle Moraine
Properties (Bob Hart) P.W. Walsh, Race and Street Graphics and Daves Lanes
of Hartford. Figure 8's are a blast and it is a testament to the safety
equipment in race cars that with a wreck like what happened in this video,
they can walk away. Thank You again.... Brandon Wolf.
St. Mary's Trophy Races, Goodwood Revival 2012
A collection of footage from the St. Mary's Trophy races for saloon cars of
the fifties at the 2012 Goodwood Revival. These hugely varied tin-tops
always provide exciting on-track action and this year featured a fine
battle between cars as flamboyant as Mk1 Jaguars, Austin A40s, a fine BMW
700 and the unique V8, rear engined Tatra.
