Another one of the names on the video Chris Maries , great driver and a propper racer who will be mixing it as usual, tommorow at Oulton in BARC Sports/Saloons in his E30 BMW.

What he doesn't know about racing Rover V8 Tuscan's isn't worth knowing .

I think Tuscan's suit the bigger boned gentleman.. have you seen a DTEC paddock lately ?

Not Chris's old TVR BTW, but one that will have shared many Grids with his car.

I asked because his original car was red - number nine IIRC.

No cut out bonnets (other than PW's by the look of it). How did induction differ back then? I don't think JR's windscreen bottom induction system was around back then yet, was it?

Darren Hi

I,m a little confused here as i am watching video footage of a GT race from 2001 at silvestone which has Micheal Caine and Bobby V Roe driving a black speed 12 and another speed 12 driven by Johnathon Roland that one is white and then there is a speed six car ( cerb ?).There is onboard footage from all three cars.As far as i have been reading on other forums on here there was only ever one speed 12 racing is this a spoof video i,m watching ?Hope not as the Caine car is leading and up against a serious lister Storm and a Viper.coffee

Get it on youtoooob! Nah they made 5 engines IIRC... Not sure at which period in time but there were definitely at least 2 running at the same time if not more - just the 1 road car though
