  • 1958 International Season - Girling Ltd     (17:42)


    Wonderfully evocative colour footage taking us back to the 1958 Le Mans 24-Hours, the Alpine Rally, the production car race won by America's Walt Hansgen during the British Grand Prix meeting at Silverstone, and the inaugural RAC Tourist Trophy Goodwood.


    1938 Tripoli Grand Prix - Daimer-Benz AG     (11:08)


    For the true connoisseur of motor sporting movie memorabilia we present this stunning-quality print of the three-pointed star's contemporary propaganda production, run complete with its dynamic German-language commentary on the original sound track. Neubauer, Caracciola, Lang, von Brauchitsch and their opposition from Alfa Romeo and Maserati, all brought into crisp focus for us today.


    1962 Tour de France Automobile - The Roots Group     (21:20)


    Excellent colour coverage of the Touring Car Category of the amazing week-long Tour de France, combining a series of gruelling two-hour races around such great race circuits as Le Mans, Rouen-les-Essarts, Pau, Reims and Spa-Francorchamps with hair-raising mountain climbs on the Cols de Braus and du Granier, and the giant at Mont Ventoux. Commentators include Peter Harper, Peter Riley and Rosemary Smith.


    1955 Tourist Trophy - Standard Triumph     (26:18)



    A team of new Triumph TR2s ran in the Golden Jubilee TT at Dundrod in Ulster, and a camera crew went along to capture the race in glorious colour. Their footage was never edited into a finished film. It has instead lain forgotten on the shelf for 50 years until unearthed for MFQ! Now edited to reflect the core of that historic race - Mercedes-Benz SLRs against Jaguar D-Types - we present the finest colour coverage of Dundrod's last motor race.
