Product Description

This is the story of motor racing in the 1950s as told, and filmed, by a man who was at its very heart - John Tate. It is 'A Gentleman's Motor Racing Diary'. John Tate, born into the sugar dynasty and a Spitfire pilot during World War II, made this remarkable archive on 8mm and 16mm film. It provides an extraordinary record of the biggest period of change ever to take place in British motor sport, from the reign of gentlemen amateurs to the development of a high tech industry and the emergence of the UK's first factory teams such as Jaguar and Aston Martin. Vol 4 - Features action from the 1957 Grand Prix season at Monaco, Roven and Monza, plus the Horsfall Trophy at Silverstone. Vol 5 - In this episode out first port of call is the principality of Monaco where Rob Walker makes it two in a row, and there's more British success at Spa in Belgium where we take in the European Grand Prix. Vol 6 - features Sebring Formula 1 action from the International trophy at Silverstone, Grand Prix meetings at Aintree, Zandvoort and Monsanto plus the 1959 Le Mans race.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fifties Motor Racing 30 May 2010
A wonderful trip down memory lane to a less commercial time. Very evocative images, of high qulaity, are captured by an amateur cameraman. Not to be missed. Get the whole set. Great value too!

1.0 out of 5 stars Faulty copy 30 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed the first three DVD's in volume one, which I bought previously, but unfortunately this second volume is faulty, presumably bad DVD pressings. The first two discs stopped part way through, after the picture broke up into pixels, and the third disc wouldn't play at all on a region two dvd player, and turned out to be a film called "Ali meets the Cajuns" when tried on a region ! dvd player.!!!!
As I hadn't had the time to watch it within the 30 day limit for returns set by this seller, they refused to replace it!!!!
I am completely dissatisfied with the service from this seller, buy elsewhere!
