I couldn’t come up with a suitable title for the thread so I chose that one ^^^
Anyway, this morning I remembered a couple of TV moments with F1/Motorsport-related content that I thought I’d share. Neither have any real relation to documentories or live footage, etc. Has anyone got any simular videos they’d like to share?
The first is from the early 1990’s, starring British comedy duo Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, both now know world-wide for their twitter account and playing a limping American doctor respectively. But before then they did, amongst other things, a sketch show.
This is the video which got me into motorsport in the first place, sort of an end of season thing for the 1991 circuit of Ireland. I would watch it over and over as a child. The last ~3 minutes (starting around 13:00) is still one of my favourite motorsport montages, pure nostalgia.
Some of the other videos of the championship in the early 90s really highlight the quality of driver Colin McRae was. You’d be used to watching drivers braking up to a corner, going round it and accelerating away, while McRae would come along and take the whole thing sideways at full throttle.
@keithcollantine Oh wow, I remember those videos. Mostly the trucks and 4 Escorts consecutively falling off the road at the same corner during a rally. There goes the rest of my days work, off to YouTube…
