Crash Cavalcade - 1960s 8mm Film (VIDEO)

Post by PTRACER » 2 years ago

I found a slightly better source on YouTube than TBK's old version. It had dropped frames every few seconds, so I fixed that and reuploaded.



Most crashes seem to be from Brands Hatch, with a few from Oulton Park and maybe also Mallory Park, 1964-5 I would guess. Some are in the CPdB and some are fatal.

Can't ID any of the other ones. I'll compare with British Pathé-footage, and see if there are any matches.
