    Devastating. :-( Thoughts with his friends and family. We all have a cross to bare, some of us feel the weight much more and have a greater battle to fight.

    Really love how the cars 'slide' thru the downhill S-curve
    ps. 1 f*cking hour of clutching, heel&toeing and what not.. If it was me I couldn't walk for days, hehe.

    Real life can be fun. You are allowed to enjoy it. But it's not realistic.

    Yeah, i notice, this simcade-like closing up from the p2 car to the leader was really showing, that there is definetly something off.

    With a possible entry in this evenings race in the formula trainer advance, full course.
    Maybe 2015 British GT champion Jamie Chadwick can give some tips .
    But first, how has Brands hatch changed. Lets ride with Sir stirling Moss back in 1960!

    Another track guide. With Watson behind the wheel

    With ground effect cars now thankfully represented in AMS2, todays vid is an in depth look at what happened when the skirts were lifted.
    Disco lasers, a handheld 6cm beam of alloy, gas shocks, rigid suspension, tyre wars, Ferraris answer to turbo lag, and a comprehensive look at the era by the English horizon tv crew following Williams. Some superb footage.
    Frank Williams actually ran 8 miles a day and also ran the tracks pre race, like the fastest track in the world at the time Silverstone.
    Brabham and Gordon Murray what did they come up with to skirt the rules?


    A little Later. AMS2
    MMmm what?

    Thank you for this! Wow I don't know if the world (other than race fans and sim fans lol) understands the value of this history.. so much in that 1960 video. The fact that they had to mount that massive camera on the car!... and the track.. the "safety" precautions consisted of.. what?... some bales of hay?.. so much danger at each corner.. the exposed cockpits of the cars of that era... Such a long time ago..While I love living in modern times (better medicine, better safety, etc..) I sometimes wish I could travel in time and just be there... smell the fuel.. what a time to be a driver! Scary, dangerous, and yet, exciting all at the same time. Respect to that group of drivers!

    @Jeff Scharpf Thanks for the comment Jeff glad u enjoyed it. Those guys imo had a shedload of guts racing tricky fast cars on proper bumpy tracks, thrill and scare factor off the scale, in our santised safe electronic world with aids and allsorts. respect indeed.
    I recall race events with just a rope between yourself and the track and the smell of Castrol R oil in the air as you approach the event location, happy days.

    .
    Was taking a timeout but could not help posting this vid below. Seems like a nice immersive experience.

    Mmm
