The early colour film-footage at Spa is great :)
Hard to believe the crowds they got in those days.

Great little film, some lovely footage there. Fairplay for posting it up.
Incidentally, there's a good book written by him also worth a read...

That's pretty good.
Real rivalry there.
Just finished beating them in the war, then gave Gerry a dam good thrashing on the track.

Love the pathe style of news.
