Stirling Moss & Slot Cars and Other Stuff

Postby stoo23 » Thu Dec 27, 2018 10:17 am

hey guys,.. found this Old "Pathe" News-reel video, via a short article in "MotorSport",.. https://www.motorsportmagazine.com/history/f1/watch-young-stirling-moss-and-his-model-cars

The video is available on YouTube as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRcLPkH3ksY

Wonderful, 'Quaint' 50's footage, music and commentary,.. So 'typical' of the time,.. :)

Some great footage of the Early 'King' track (WITH Wheels !!) as well,.. Never noticed the Rise and Fall just after the 'Lead-On' before either !!,.. lol

Shame you Don't get to see How they controlled the cornering speeds of the diesel powered cars !!??

:o :o :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol:
I actually 'scrolled' through the 'Comments' under this video on YouTube and the one right at the Bottom says:- "Wow, the 50s look pretty boring" !!,.. :lol: :lol: :lol:

PLUS !!,.. Check the 'Whack' that Stirling gives his Wife just after their race !!!,.. WTF !!??,.. lol
