Absolutely nothing to do with Lancia but two nice bits of film from the VSCC Forum:
Hamish White in a 12/50 Alvis on Drumhouse:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_TFyvqfghc
and Ari Vatanen in a Peugeot on Pikes Peak: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKgeCQGu_ug

The Alvis footage didn't seem quite right without steam puffing out the rad filler - or is that just me Sad

That Pikes Peak film was something else.  For once the big scares were the understeer moments, only a couple but real butt clenchers.  Those bumper level views of dust and sky were great.  There's a similar view at the Semi Circle up the top of Prescot but its not all that big a drop and not all that fast for all it would smart a bit falling off.  The Sloc Hill on the Isle of Man has some really big drops and while my memory is "all you see is sky" corners YouTube footage seems very tame.  At least next to Prescot it had the "foot to the floor in 4th" pace that gets the ticker really going.

In brief - thankyou for the posting!!
