Ben has just added a new video to the old racer channel http://www.oldracer.co.uk/video-gallery.html (top left) it has his first race on the C15 and his first race on the HRD
The C15 episode was back when vintage racing still had proper starts before the health and safety inspectors made it easy (Ben is in Roger Burnett's old Rothmans leathers No 208). The HRD sequence was a year or so later. It was 'fresh' out of storage since the very last VOC Cadwell meeting at the end you will see the results when Ben stuffed it royally at the goosneck, he always blames the Brampton's, I just know it was the invincibility of youth:rolleyes:
