Three Pointed Star Audio CD - Description

There are few sounds that stir the emotions quite like a full-blooded racing car at full chat, and few motorsport fans whose pulses do not quicken as the revs build. 

Now you can re-live the extraordinary sounds of a bygone era of motor racing with this classic volume from the Stanley Schofield Sound Stories archive.

Take a trip back to the earliest days of modern Grand Prix racing from Aintree, venue of the 1955 British Grand Prix, to Silverstone, which hosted the race the following year, as roaring engines, squealing tyres and period commentary capture the action.

Share in the delight of the first ever English win at the British Grand Prix, as Stirling Moss edges out the legendary Juan Manuel Fangio by 1/5th of a second at the end of a Mercedes-Benz-dominated race. 

The growl of the 2.5 litre Mercedes engines take the lead role, with a support cast including Vanwalls, Coopers, Connaughts and many more.

Then join the action at Silverstone as British heroes Mike Hawthorn and Stirling Moss battle to maintain national honour only to fall by the wayside as Fangio takes the chequered flag after 300 miles of racing.

An undoubted highlight is the 1958 Richard Seaman Memorial Trophy meeting at Oulton Park, an extremely rare opportunity to hear two of the most successful Grand Prix cars in history roaring into life two decades after their heyday. 

Racing legends Tony Brooks and Peter Collins get behind the wheels of two classic Mercedes-Benz machines, the 1937 W125 and the 1938 W163, both driven by the legendary Seaman at the height of his powers.

The unbelievable sounds transport you back to the glory days of pre-war racing, while Collins and Brooks are barely able to contain the delight of handling these classics of the sport.

'All credit to Duke for re-releasing these 1950s recordings on CD. Three Pointed Star has stirring coverage of the 1955 and '56 British GPs. The highlight, though, is Collins and Brooks thrashing the pre-war W125 and W163 around Oulton Park in 1958' Octane
