As more and more clips find their way onto 'You Tube', maybe we could have a sticky home for them?

Both of these feature US racing in the 60's.

Indeed they were. There are also some terrible reminders that safety then was not a patch on what it is today.

The You Tube site has footage of some infamous accidents that claimed the lives of many top drivers in the 60's and 70's.

This link is to a much better one, the 1970 GP at Brands.

Here's one for you.  I know that some time in the past I have seen footage of Frank Gardner stuffing the Willment Galaxy at Old Hall in the mid sixties (I was sitting in the grandstand at the time).  I have googled away - like yer do - to no avail.  Every seen the piece of film I'm referring to.  Can't for the life of me find it.

Not exacty what you are looking for, but i think you will enjoy this.

The Galaxy does have near miss when a tyre blows and there is one less mini in the world after this race!

Certainly did.  Shame about Crystal P, especially as I used to rent a flat about 100 yards from the old place, sadly after its demise.  RIP.
GP drivers of today just can't compete with this generation, can they?  Clark could race anything and did.  Still want a Lotus Cortina and probably always will.

Watching the tyre changes from that era is quite an eye-opener too!

What kind of car is it that comes round the corner at 1 min17 seconds into the clip?  (Big wide car).  I recognise the Cortina, Mini, Jag, Anglia but that other one doesnt look familiar.

Could you be referring to the Galaxy - the car that prompted Nordic's little find?

Could be - its just that it looks sort of american for British Sports Saloon racing!  Did the British car industry really make boats like that in the old days?

Deffo - but you're right, not made in the UK - now would we?.  Take a look at this, Fran.  Click on '60s then Galaxie - apologies, this is the correct spelling. http://www.willmentcars.com/
Frank Gardner used to mix it with the Cortinas in one of these on a regular basis during what (in my humble opinion) was the hey-day of British Saloon car racing.  It was a sight to see - fast as you like but totally cr*p round corners.  I once raced - in one of those company track day things - in  a hovercraft (really) - must have been a very similar experience only about 20 times faster!

LOL - I had an old Ford Fairlane 5500 for a (very) brief time, was quite an experience (till the petrol ran out) - not suitable for those that suffer from sea sickness!  Spent quite a lot of time going sideways even without trying....

I lived in the ar*e end of nowhere at the time and if I ran out of petrol and had to use the spare gallon from the boot, I still couldnt reach the nearest petrol station (just over 2 miles)  Embarrassed
