Onboard in the Lister-Jaguar with Monkey. There's oversteer aplenty, natch
Apologies for the lack of a proper Harris vid so far this week. We hope to pair a very exciting car and Chris's inimitable style shortly. For now, and for possibly the first time ever on PH, here's a Chris Harris production without him talking (!).
It's some lovely onboard footage from Sunday's Revival TT race, with Chris in the Lister-Jaguar harrying (and eventually passing) the David Hart/Tom Coronel Cobra. Then a powerslide worthy of Kenny Brack undoes all the hard work and drops him behind again.
Next lap, same corner, same result. But Monkey keeps it clean and tidyish through the chicane and this time retains the lead. Then he's off, straight six howling, to lap a low-drag E-Type and a DB4, as you do at the Revival.
And yes, we know the Targa Florio vid has also been published this afternoon, but we wanted to get this video out before the whole world grabs it. We'll have Chris behind the wheel of something modern, and maybe even doing some talking, ASAP.
One of the most fantastic sounds I have ever heard!

I love it: Chris Harris really boosts classic car racing with his posts.
Hoping he will do a few more classic stints next season.
Spa 6 was a bit tragic though . . .

What an amazing vid. The noise from that engine. You keep thinking "He's got to change soon, hasn't he ?"
The balancing act of grip and power is so evident in that video someone needs to get old Bernie to have a watch of it. If you cant see driver skill in evidence how do you know its there.

Bravo Chris, we all liked the video and hope you enjoyed the week ends drive!! Loved the shaking gearstick, just like and e type I have. Also the moment in the chicane when that wretched cobra slipped up the inside, still grunt and bravery got him again. Historic race cars and drivers possess maximum event appeal, first class field in that race.
Thanks to GW web site for the live streaming some of us had to use.
