Aston Martin, Jaguar, BRM, Lotus, Cooper, Connaught, Vanwall - magical names from the history of British motorsport before sponsors’ advertising dominated the appearance of racing cars.
We revisit many lovingly restored examples of great British racing cars from the 1950s & 60s in action again at the historic racing car festival at Silverstone. The great names of the past including - Moss, Surtees, Scheckter, Hulme, Salvadori and Brooks are reunited with the cars in which they earned their reputations and their many international victories. Present day action footage of the great cars and drivers combines with rare archive of the 50s and 60s as each car is expertly profiled. Producer Neville Hay adds many fascinating and entertaining anecdotes from his wealth of knowledge of motor racing history.
Featuring on-board camera footage from many of the most famous classics being used under racing conditions at Silverstone, accompanied by a stereo soundtrack.
"These three, 90-minute films retrace the history of British (green), German (silver) and Italian (red) racers from those halcyon days when national pride - and colour - mattered. Each film features superb historical footage, expertly narrated by Neville Hay. Fans of racing nostalgia need all three" Autosport
