Everyone requires a mandatory video-break throughout the work-a-day so here we present you with a varying hodgepodge of selections that run from the odd to the old to the personal portrait to the importance of friendship and comaraderie within motoring circles.
Metal Heart – Captured at a Monster Truck Event, this strange little video manages to reflect a miniaturised, toy-like, clay-mation world back to the viewer. My favourite bit is the supposed Smash-up Derby
The Bond – Some of you may have already seen this video when it emerged a few months back but for those that haven’t, it’s worth your time. An intimate and beautifully filmed portait detailing why the most important vehicle purchases in life come from the heart.
Rattling the Hills in a Spyker – This video remains a personal fave of mine, as I’ve been fortunate enough to have driven these exquisite roads throughout the Scottish Highlands in various TVRs from years past. Shown here is a Spyker C8 blatting across the landscape and I can assure you, the Spyker sounds every bit as roaringly delicious as the soundtrack delivers it to be… I implore you all..! Go to Scotland and drive the western coastline..!
A Pinch of Salt – One from the Bonneville Salt Flats Annual Speedweek. An honest look at the camaraderie and life-long friendships that permeate throughout this event where the record books are an afterthought and helping your fellow mate achieve his/her own goals reigns supreme. Again, beautifully shot.
Targa Florio 1970 – Excellent period commentary from Vic Elford from one of the last times the Targa Florio event was run before it ended. Amazing footage. Of noteworthy sights are various scenes where Alfa Romeos, Ferraris and Porsches are being driven at full speed throughout the tiny villages while small children stand in awe, chickens stroll about and elderly gentlemen engage in card games on the immediate roadside with cars blasting past them, unguarded, at truly ferocious speeds. An essential glimpse from a time we’ll never see the likes of ever again.
