A film from the archives of the VSCC I thought you might enjoy... I did, especially the section from Oulton park..
Life just seemed so much more relaxed back then

If someone had said this was 1965 as opposed to 1975 I suspect I would have believed them

Thanks for taking the time to let me know that the link was worth posting. Glad you enjoyed the vid, at Oulton the commentator seemed not to appreciate the Nash gang... smile
Yeah things were al a tad more informal/less regulated back in a time when we took responsability for our own actions, were far less inclined to sue each other and expect to be "protected" by ever more regulation. How society has "advanced"..! Rant over. oldgit

Many thanks. Great footage of an era many of us are familiar with.

Glad you enjoyed the vids Mossy, I think the VSCC may have recently posted quite a few of their old club vids on YouTube recently so lots to work your way through.. (-:
