YESTERDAY'S RACERS Volume 1
This is the first in our series of historic motorsport videos.
I intend this to be an ongoing series of DVD's that encompass all aspects of historic racing. In time, this could well include boats, motorbikes and aeroplanes as well.
This first volume runs for approx 55 minutes and includes items on :
the Lola T300 F5000 car,
an interview with amateur film-maker Freddie Barratt, which I've titled 'Rear View Mirror' (anyone who has purchased copies of David Weguelins' 'Motorfilms Quartely' videos will already have seen just how good Freddie's films are),
one of Freddie's films shot prior to the 1967 British Grand Prix, featuring footage of Fangio in the 1955 GP Mercedes, Moss and Jenks, Raymond Mays, Tony Brooks, Philippe Etancelin and many more,
and lastly a profile of Rodger Newman and his ex-Jochen Rindt Brabham BT18 Formula 2 car.
There's also a 'hidden extra' that you will get at the end of the video.
And all of this for just £14.99 !!
(plus £1.50 for postage & packing)

Lastly, just for a bit of fun, something you should never see on a TV programme.
This is the video tape 'clock' from the start of part 1 of 'Rear View Mirror'.
All TV programmes have a clock at the start of each part of the programme, it tells the engineers etc. at the TV station where and when the programme material is on the tape. It's normally a black background with a white clock on it. On my ones I used a 'still' from Freddie's films, just for fun.
I thought you might like to see it.
