Thanks Mike, that's exactly my point; surely as highly experienced professionals they should *not* have sounded like they were reading from a script....

Well, of course, the highlight was meeting bauble !

Curate's egg as has been said elsewhere. Interesting archive footage, the paint scraping "story" (which we know isn't right), Alfa DTM cars, Group C, interviews with Mass, Stuck and Danner which made a change from the usual JYS and Moss on these things. Seemed a little disjointed from time to time, but overall worth going to watch.

Brought back good memories of our first visit to the Ring last year for VLN (when it was hot and sunny all day !)

3. Nowhere near enough in car footage. I fully expected in a film of this length to get a full in-car lap at serious pace from someone....
4. Occasionally the music was intrusive - especially when I was loving hearing the turbo flutter of the 956.....

But, as I say, I enjoyed it. I may not buy the DVD, but I'm pleased I went to see it.
Agree with those points. A full in car lap in something quick would have been good and totally appropriate!

I'm pleased that I took the time to watch it on a big screen with decent sound.

And dwh43's comment 'a little disjointed from time to time' is IMHO pretty much spot on as well.
