Goodwood Revival 2014 Greatest Hits

Here’s a smattering of videos that the (remarkable) media team at Goodwood have put together to mark the close of this year’s Revival event. I still don’t know how all those cars that spun in the TT race managed to avoid each other.

RAC TT Race:

Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy:

St Mary’s Trophy:

Whitsun Trophy:

Fordwater Trophy:

Richmond Trophy:

Goodwood Trophy:

It’s not quite being there, but I give huge accolades to Goodwood for allowing us to watch the action remotely.

Goodwood Revival Day 2 is Live.

For these live events, even if you join well into the day you can usually drag the YouTube playhead back to the beginning of the stream to see the day’s running in its entirety. So really there’s no reason to do a single other thing today but watch this fantastic feed.

Edit: Updated with the archived video, rather than the livestream. Thanks Goodwood!

Factories at Work: Lamborghini 1968

If you thought that vintage track footage was hard to find, you should try digging up old tours of sportscar workshops. I can’t help imagining that this precious film is the result of an expectant Miura buyer visiting the line to check in on their purchase. Whatever the reasons or motivations for the filming, it’s a wonderful artifact of Lamborghini’s early days.

Listen to that Super-8 projector whirr.

The Repco-Brabham Story: A Documentary

Check out this magnificent look behind the scenes at Repco-Brabham, and “Black Jack” Brabham’s stewardship of both the team and relationship with Repco, the Australian engineering company that somehow became a world class engine supplier. You can always count on midcentury film narration for quality platitudes like this gem: …”the new owner is assured that his Repco-Brabham is right—not only according to the jigs and the gauges—but also in its personality and temperament. Subtle qualities checked by the sensitive hands of the maestro himself.”

No Repco-Brabham film is complete without an introduction to the Tasman Series, and it thankfully comprises the bulk this film. For the impatient: jump to 10 minutes in for some shots of bonus New Zealand tikis as introduction to Formula 1’s best known off-season diversion. But really, the whole doc is worth a watch. Dust off your Dunlop blues, and make yourself comfortable.

Thanks for pointing this one out, Brian!

Ferrari F40 Promo Video

The F40 is iconic for a lot of reasons. It was the last Ferrari to be created under Enzo Ferrari’s direct supervision. It was a perfect moment at the height of the old fashioned—some say purer—supercar (old fashioned in that it was without much in the way of onboard computerized driver aids). It isn’t bad to look at either.

When the Japanese magazine Car Graphic was asked to make this promotional video for the Ferrari F40 in 1987, they may have produced something just as unique as the F40 itself… Something we’re unlikely to ever see again. I’d bet that this is as close as we’ll ever get to a Ferrari television ad.

You know… as good as it looks, the view pales in comparison to the sound.
