Thanks for bringing that to attention, it was an interesting watch. Admittedly heavy rain disrupted my satellite reception briefly so I may have missed something but I couldn't feeling that from memory some of the early F Ford history was a bit disjointed. For instance, there was no mention of his time with the works PRS team in Britain & Europe in 1979.

My abiding memory of that year was a European Championship round at the Nurburgring, I believe only the second-ever FF race to be run on the Nordschleife. Tommy put the PRS on pole, & seeing it as a big opportunity, the Holman brothers who ran PRS guarded Tommy very carefully between qualifying & the race, ensuring he didn't get into any trouble. Needless to say, Tommy became a bad boy in the race. German hot-shot Peter Kroeber soon got the lead, but something like six separate observers around the circuit reported Tommy as he repeatedly hit Peter until the German went off. Needless to say, Byrne was disqualified, & John Village inherited the win, having had a grandstand view of the action & could see what the outcome would be.

It was great to see some period footage last night & spot many familiar faces from those days. Tommy has not lost any modesty either, considering himself to be the equal of Ayrton Senna was a bit far-fetched!

I have always thought we should have a 'For Sale & Wanted' thread on the forum.

Not wanting to be left out, just watched C and B on the jolly old iplayer.

Thought EJ pretty much summed it up at the end! Good watch, and some nice archive footage of junior formula racing.....

Yep, I watched it last night and found it an entertaining hour. I did strike me what an arrogant so & so TB is/was, plus it was interesting to see & hear others from that time such as Calvin Fish & David Kennedy. The archive footage was also very nostalgic.

Yes to all that! Didn't appear to be too much 'crash' while he was winning championships, unless they skipped over that aspect..... Certainly a very natural talent.

Yes, attack on Parliament. Very sad that not only has a policeman been injured but an innocent person has died. We live in interesting times...................... sadly.

Signe des temps politics yesterday use to express their condemnation now they tend to say they are sorry but that we must be prepared to this kind of thing (lasting).
