RIGHT BACK TO BRUNTINGTHORPE FOR THE 1987 NASC NATS, THIS IS PART 1 & THERES LOTS MORE TO COME. THE FOOTAGE WAS KINDLY LENT TO ME BY ALAN LARCOMBE (OUT A THE BLUE ESCORT VAN) & LES DUNNE (RED V6 SUNBEAM ALPINE & USED TO HAVE THE MK1 ESCORT VAN WITH TRIANGLE CUT REAR DOORS).

BOTH ALAN & LES WERE/ARE ERIC MEMBERS (ESSEX RACING IS COOL) & IN THE VIDEO PARTS THERE WILL BE LOTS OF ERIC PEOPLE INVOLVEMENT, ITS NOT ALL CARS, DONT GET BORED THOUGH THERES SOME GREAT FOOTAGE ON HERE.

TALKING OF FOOTAGE, I HAVE HAD TO EDIT OUT VARIOUS SWEARING/MOONIES ETC, SHAME BUT IT HAD TO BE DONE, I HOPE ALAN DOESN'T MIND ME SAYING THAT AT TIMES THE FOOTAGE IS RATHER SHAKEY ETC, I HAVE CUT SOME OF THE SHAKEY BITS OUT BUT HAVE LEFT SOME IN WHERE THERE MAY BE CARS ETC IN THE PICTURE.

IN THIS PART IN THE OPENING SCENE YOU CAN SEE ALAN LAMBERT STILL WITH HAIR & HIS V8 SLEEPER MK4, WATCH IT SHIFT!, YOU WILL ALSO SEE KEITH SMITH (THE BEAST JAG, AC COBRA IN VIDEO) & HIS EX JULIE WITH HER VERY FARAH FAWCETT 80S HAIIRDOO, AS WELL AS ALAN LARCOMBE, WIFE AND VERY FRESH BABY & OTHER MANY OTHER ERIC PEOPLE, ALSO VISABLE ARE TREVOR 'DIGGER' GARDINER (GIVING US THE ONE FINGER!), DAVE HENSON (FORD FEVER), STEVE DODDS (AMERICAN HEARTBEAT MUSTANG IN WHITE), MARK BAILEY (RED CONSUL MK2), DAVE KELLY (IMSA BMW), JON WEBSTER (HOT LEMON MINOR) BARRY FLOOD & MANY MORE, OTHER NAMES WOULD BE NICE PLEASE.

COUPLE OF POINTS TO MENTION, YOU WILL SEE A CHOPPED HA VAN GOING ROUND THE STRIP, THOUGHT IT WAS THE BALDY VAN BUT IT AINT, ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING?, & WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO THAT BIG FOOT MEGA TOT/ADULT ROD!

NOW I WILL STOP WAFFLING, JUST LIKE TO SAY THANKS AGAIN TO ALAN, & EVERYONE ENJOY...:lol:

BY THE WAY, MR LAMBERT, MR SMITH & OTHER ASSOCIATED EMBARRASSED ERIC PEOPLE, IT WAS ALL MR LARCOMBES IDEA!! ...:pmsl:
