1967 BOAC 500 Sports Car Race Brands Hatch.mp4
Coverage of the 1967 BOAC 500 Sports Car Race at Brands Hatch which sealed Ferrari as Sports Car Champions over the Ford GT40's that year.
The intro shows a Ferrari 412P - a "customer version" of the famous 330 P3 race car, built for independent teams like NART (0844), Scuderia Filipinetti (0848), Francorchamps (0850), and Maranello Concessionaires (0854).
0854 is seen behind the Ford Transit at the beginning of this film with its unique Cambridge Blue stripe on Rosso Corsa.
These cars had carburetor engines instead of the factory Lucas fuel injection of the P4 but were otherwise very similar - A P3 was also updated to p4 spec -the 0846 being since the subject of an intense investgation of authenticity since Ferrari have previously decklared it as destroyed and scrapped.
Surviving 412P cars are worth approximately $8 million at auction. 0854 is currently undergoing restoration and conversion from Spyder back to Belinetta by James Glikenhaus.
1967 Oulton Park Gold Cup Saloons
The Ford Falcon race, much enlivened by the spectacular three-wheeled Cortinas of Graham Hill & Jackie Ickx.
Not many people know there is a small lake in the trees if you go over the Esso Banking. Graham Hill will remember that.

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.
