Great period footage and editing from 1967 of the very first Player's Grand Prix of Canada, held at Mosport in the rain.
Since commenter Pilote has now stirred my boyhood memories of Elkhart Lake 1993, I have to share Nigel's blisteringly fast qualifying performance at that race--at a track he'd never seen before. What a man, and what a season he had!
I was a massive Nigel Mansell fan from ages 12-15. He was my hero. And this photo of him testing the F40 at Fiorano just shows everything that was cool about him at the time! Quientessentially English but with a latin verve in the cockpit!
Just found this great period footage of Brian Redman giving a practice tour of the Targa Florio in 1970. You have to love the way he threads his way through the village traffic.
There is something about this video, just seeing these amazing cars with their wide rear ends. The epic backfires, the sound of that high-strung supercharged 4 cylinder. Groupe B was such a mad and amazing era.
