just watched it , very good.....
There are only a handful of talented driver/ riders in motorsport though , there are great riders and great drivers but very few can do both successfully.

Best one to date was the legend himself , Mike hailwood…..a truly talented person.

great program .

I well remember a Brian Hart, Rob; is this the same man?

Brian did a lot with Lotus/Ford Twin Cam engines - hence the 'bvtc' i.e., Big Valve Twin Cam
