"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

1st Silverstone GP: 1950

  1. A terribly awfully splendid clip GV!

    60 years of the British GP and how things have changed, eh. I was especially amazed at the trucks they used to transport the cars. It's all a bit different now.

    My favourite year was 1987, that 'hairs on the back of the neck' race between Senna and Mansell. I was lucky enough to be there too .... awesome!

    Good times ;-)

  2. You're quite rightGoT, it's spiffingly top-hole. I just love the shape and the noise of those old cars. I spotted the odd handlebar moustache amongst the pit crew too.

    It's all a bit 'precious' now, like football, but Hamilton did ok to come in 2nd.
