Cockshoot cup 2006 MG racing
The highs and lows of club racing from fierce battling for position to engine blow up, back to racing. My MGB race season of 2006, in the MGCC Cockshoot club championship. Circuits on the video are Silverstone, Oulton park, Mallory park and Croft.
1969 MGC GTS versus Porsche Carrera S
1969 MGC GTS and Porsche Carrera having a bit of fun.
While driving a canyon road, I came up on a guy in a Carrera S. Once traffic cleared, he took off while in a residential area so I let him go. He slowed when I didn't follow. Once in a safer area we had a bit of fun. I think he was VERY surprised that he couldn't shake a 38-year-old M.G.!
MGB V8: Starting from the back ...again
An electrical connector fell off at the start of qualifying so we never got a timed lap. So... back of the grid again... And another funny race. I made it up to 5th at the driver change and looking at the lap charts, my fastest lap would have put us on the front row. Somehow I don't think the race would have been so much fun from P2 though...
MGB Double Declutching
My 1977 MGB is a great car for learning how to heel and toe double declutch when downshifting just like the race car drivers of yesterday. A smooth heel and toe downshift is an art form and really helps on the twisty bits where balance and control are helpful
MGB laps of Mallala (South Australia) - Aug, 2006
The lovely engine sounds of a little 1800cc 1968 MGB doing laps of Mallala Motorsport Park in South Australia detracted from by the lousy wind noise in the microphone. Couldn't get the Alfa but it didn't get away either much, either!
