Did anyone watch the Formula E racing at Battersea Park at the weekend? 

It was quite good (on the TV of course). It was surprising to me to see how many relatives of well known names were racing. It is good to see this younger generation.

The technology behind the cars was interesting especially when they dumbed it down and made comparisons to battery power I was more familiar with.  I also liked the idea that the way the driver used the car's battery resource contributed to the end result. Once I got into the rules it became quite fascinating especially when those rules determined that a Brit won the race.

Post by: Tony oily bike on July 04, 2015, 07:31:12 AM
There's some tyre noise, otherwise it's just the noise of a lot of electric motors. Same sort of sound as the TT Zero bikes on the IoM.

Here's a couple of observations:

One driver was penalised for using too much power.

The guy leading the last lap, and who went across the finishing line first, was disqualified because his "tank" became "empty" before the chequered flag.


On F1, there's discussion about making the exhausts systems noisier. Guess its a bit like putting the playing card against the spokes of your bicycle when a youngster!  :D

Channel 4, 8pm, Tuesday 15th Sept – Battle of Britain: Return of the Spitfires.

On 15th September 2015, the 75th anniversary of victory in Battle of Britain, an estimated 40 Spitfires and Hurricanes and  Blenheims from across the UK, USA and Europe will come to Goodwood Aerodrome, West Sussex, to take part in an historic flypast over the South of England. The event brings together in one place more Battle of Britain aircraft  than at any time since World War Two.

http://www.battleofbritainday.co.uk/#!about/mainPage

http://www.channel4.com/info/press/news/channel-4-commemorates-battle-of-britain-with-aerial-spectacular

The event brings together more Spitfires and Hurricanes in one place than at any time since World War Two - all converging on Goodwood Aerodrome in West Sussex. The roar of 40 Spitfires and Hurricanes starting their engines will transport the airfield back in time to the Battle of Britain, when it was known as RAF Westhampnett and home to two fighter squadrons that fought in the campaign.
Using helicopters and a chase plane, the show will capture all the action as the Spitfires and Hurricanes form ‘Wings’ of up to eight aircraft and embark on routes covering the South of England. It will be a truly dramatic and emotional spectacle as they pass over iconic locations connected with the Battle of Britain, such as the White Cliffs of Dover, Biggin Hill and RAF Uxbridge

Post by: BikerGran on September 15, 2015, 07:22:33 PM
Yup that was it!   When you think about it, it was never going to be the fantastic thing it was touted as - there were about 40 planes taking part, flying 10 different routes.  If my maths is correct that could mean a maximum of 4 planes on each route.

The way it was reported in the new wasn't factual either "the formations were seen from (can't remember all the places named) and Weymouth" - well our single plane was heading for Weymouth.  Hey ho.

Sunday 8th Oct from 7pm on the Travel Channel, African Motorcycle Diaries.

As Spanners pointed out in next message: It's 8th NOV, not October  ::)

http://www.travelchannel.co.uk/shows/african-motorcycle-diares

From their website:

Spencer Conway adventure motorcyclist takes on the biggest challenge of his life. Unsupported he circumnavigates Africa on his motorcycle through 34 countries, covering a staggering 55,345 km. This monumental undertaking tests Spencer's physical endurance, challenges his determination and commitment and ultimately puts his life at risk. Without a support vehicle or team, Spencer's low budget, light-weight approach means he is forced to sleep rough, eat when and what he can when the opportunity arises and navigate by only a rough map and local knowledge.

I've given up watching these programmes where they 'build' stuff - they make it look so easy!

On another forum I belong to a bloke came on and said he wanted to build a bike like this (posted a pic) or this (another pic) and did anyone have any advice.   They were both very fancy builds with fancy paintwork (all overdone IMO) and apparently from some TV programme.

People started giving him good advice and it then became clear he hadn't a clue what they were talking about, had never ridden a bike and didn't know anything about bikes!

Guys Wall of Death live on Monday 28th 7.15pm - He's attempting a world speed record on a Wall of Death, and the speed he's aiming for is apparently 100mph.

That may not seem particularly fast, but according to an article I read, the speed on a normal Wall of Death is 22mph.

The increased speed will mean G forces approaching 10G, which means blacking-out becomes something he has to be aware of.

Saturday 2nd April 2016 - Channel 4, 5.30pm - Speed with Guy Martin - Pikes Peak.

This a repeat from series 2 - where Guy with home-made bike, van & mate or two, takes on the infamous Pike's Peak hillclimb in the US of A.

To say it's a little different to a UK hillclimb is a bit of an understatement............

Pike's Peak (first used for competition in 1916) used to be loose surface, but over the years more and more was tarmacked until the whole of the 12 odd miles is now 'pavement'.

The start is at about 9400ft and the finish just over 14,100ft (which reduces engine power by around 30% for normally aspirated vehicles) and each competitor has to negotiate 156 turns, which is a lot of remembering!!

If you haven't seen this, I reckon its well worth a watch, just keep an eye out for the drops at the side of the course!!

There was talk of an anniversary custom show there a couple of years ago, which looked quite hopeful after they stopped holding Sunday markets there, but unfortunately, nothing came of it in the end. My first experiences of drag racing were tagging along with my brother & his mates to the meets there, back in the late 70s.

Watched an episode from the new series of "Wheeler Dealers" on Quest last night, 3rd Nov (series 10 episode 8 )  and it turned out that the guys got a V8 Ford Pop that needed some TLC so they did their thing.

Mike Brewer said his father had owned a Pop back in the day, and it turned out to be Micky Bray's Pinball Wizard (doesn't Sir Mankey have/had one if its engines tucked away somewhere?)

Guessing the episode will be repeated sometime, maybe soon, so if ya want to see it, best refer to your TV listing for Quest

Title: Re: Programmes coming up on the tele
Post by: Manky Monkey on November 04, 2016, 04:19:44 PM
Never seen it, (I don't own a TV), but heard about it. The Pop was finished in purple wasn't it? Wasn't very well received by the Popular crowd, but if Ed China was involved, (is that the programme he does?), it would've had some unusual touches, which might not be everyone's cup of tea. Also some dispute over whether his Dad actually owned the Wizard. I think they decided he may have part owned it for a short time.
Yes, I owned a 383ci Mopar engine that came out of Pinball Wizard. I was given it for free by the current owner, Pete Legrice, to go in Tazet's Dodge Charger. It went with the car when I sold it & last I heard, was being rebuilt to go in it.

Not on everybody's TV but if you have Sky and access to the Box Sets, there is a three part series called 'Harley and the Davidsons'. It's about the beginnings of the well known company. It is free at the moment. I believe it was shown on Discovery originally. I did search MMM to see if it had already been mentioned but I didn't find anything. The DVD is supposed to be out for Christmas but you can also download the series now from Amazon for £4.99 or £6.99 in HD.

Thurs 23rd March 2017

ITV4 9pm


The Goodwood Members’ Meeting is a weekend of motor racing which aims to recreate the atmosphere and camaraderie of the original BARC (British Automobile Racing Club) Members’ Meetings held at Goodwood throughout the 1950s and 1960s and includes cars from classic tin-tops and GTs, to motorcycles and open wheeled Formula 3 and F1 machines.

Unlike the Festival of Speed (June/July 2017) and the Revival (September 2017) meetings, to which tickets are available to the general public, the Members’ Meeting tickets are only available to GRRC Members.

Here’s a sort of straw-poll question – what film do you think has the best car chase without the use if CGI ?

Reckon its fair to say Bullitt will be up there, as maybe The French Connection, Dirt Harry Crazy Larry, Ronin, The Blues Brothers, The Italian Job with Michael Caine, (Gone in Sixty Seconds with Nicholas Cage? – has CGI with the scene on the bridge!), The Driver with Ryan O’Neill, Drive, The Bourne Identity and Vanishing Point......

But how many have seen the original 1974 Gone in Sixty Seconds?
It has a 30+ minute chase and was written, directed and produced by H.B. Halicki, who just happens to have the lead role as well as doing his own driving and stunts in the film!!!
Oh, and he also supplied the vehicles, of which it is said that nearly 100 were totalled.

I also rate the original Vanishing point.

I didn't realise the most recent 'Gone in Sixty Seconds' was a remake.

A 30+ minute car chase!! Wouldn't that be too long? It would be like listening to a 30+ minute drum solo or watching a 30+ minute firework display. Even though I love all those things, that length of time would be overkill. I will have to watch and see if it also applies to car chases.  :D

I do love the 'Blues Brothers' car chase. It was on the other week. My favourite scenes are the chase, the country and western bar with 'Rawhide', the church scene and Aretha Franklin singing. Such a great film.  8)  A very appropriate emoji!  ;D

From RT website - Guy takes part in his first-ever Formula 1 race as he goes head to head with 2009 world champion Jenson Button around Silverstone Grand Prix circuit. Guy is driving a classic 1983 Williams FW08c, working for six months with the Williams heritage Division to restore it from museum piece to racing condition, and learned how to drive Formula 1 style under the direction of Karun Chandhok, formerly of the Hispania Racing F1 Team, while Jenson takes to the track in a prototype six-wheeled Williams from the 1980s.

Motor racing Grand Prix style.

It’s the start of the 2019 Grand Prix / GP motor racing season for both bikes and cars.

The motorcycles (normally) have 3 (televised) Grand Prix races at each venue, one for each of the formulae (the formulae being similar to the cars with Formula 1, Formula 2 etc).

Checking out the gap of the opening race at Qatar across the finish line between 1st and 2nd for each race makes for interesting reading, and exciting racing. Moto3 – 0.05sec, Moto2 – 0.03sec, MotoGP – 0.02sec.
If you don’t get BTSport, highlights appear to be shown on Quest, for the Qatar race it was the following day.

Its the turn of the four-wheelers on Sunday.

Enjoy...........

Find it, fix it, drive it.

Sun 21st April 2019

More4 08.55


As I quite like old British drag/sprint bikes, I thought I'd mention this prog.

There’s a chance to see a 500cc blown Triumph sprint / drag bike on the TV on Sunday (21st) morning starting at 08.55 on More4, so set up the Betamax if you want to record it. (ps it may well finish a couple minutes later than scheduled)

The programme takes an old 1960’s ambulance, then converts & paints it so it’ll haul the bike, in period style, to Elvington where the bike is run on the airfield (the bike part is predominantly the last 15 minutes ish).

Interesting to hear the comment/statement about Elvington as “ this is the Mecca mate, the birthplace of English land speed”.

Me thinks what happened at Blackpool, Brooklands and Saltburn/Southport in the early part of the 20th century just might question the birthplace thing.....................

I watched "The Highway Men" last night on Netflix, (at Archie's house -I don't own a TV).
The story of Bonnie & Clyde's demise told from the lawmen's point of view & starring Kevin Costner & Woody Harrelson. Very good. Great scenes of depression era America, good portrayals of the 2 aging Texas Rangers tracking their foe across the country & lots of gorgeous 30s cars.
https://youtu.be/aH6vC-BBKOc

When I flew to Japan recently, I watched Green Book on the plane. The true story of an Italian American from the Bronx, hired to drive a black jazz pianist to a series of concerts across the Deep South in the 60s.
Again, beautiful footage of period America & a great story of the growing friendship between 2 completely different characters as they travel in a rented Cadillac.

Goodwood Revival. (from previous weekend’s event)

Thurs 19th September 2019

ITV4 8pm


Fri 20th September 2019

ITV4 9pm




The annual Goodwood Revival in Sussex is a 3-day event and features historic-vehicle motor racing on a circuit that basically remains un-changed  (bar the odd gravel trap or run-off) since its closure in 1966.

All the competition cars and bikes are of the era when the circuit was open.

In addition, all vehicles within the circuit boundary (with the exception of safety related vehicles) such as breakdown trucks, ice cream vans and pace cars are all period, even the marshals get taken to their stations by period bus.

Tickets (for the Sat & Sun) sell out way in advance as this is considered a world-class event with a huge array of famous drivers from the past attending, many racing alongside some of today’s drivers. (at time of posting, Wed 11th, some Friday tickets are still available!)

Its also worth noting that the 'races' are races, not parades, and the vehicles are originals, some with fantastic history being given the beans good 'n' proper.

There are parades as well, this year they include the Stirling Moss parade, D-Day parade, Cooper Car parade and 1959 TT parade.

The paying public, along with mechanics and officials tend to dress in clothing reminiscent of the era too, which may sound a bit naff, but it fits in brilliantly with the event.

Oh, and how many motor racing events can you turn up to and they have a 10 minute air display at about 08.15 (usually with a Spitfire - well, it was an RAF airfield during WW2............) and around 7pm when the track closes.

Here’s a music prog about an eccentric chap known as Rock and Roll’s Greatest Failure, (the one, the only) John Otway. The prog is a film, funded by fans, and simply called Otway The Movie.

Its scheduled to be on London Live – Wed 2nd October 22.15

“London Live”.TV Channel. The Web says “Watch on Freeview 8, Sky 117, Virgin 159 and YouView 8 or stream online. http://londonlive.co.uk”

Folk of a certain age (prob over 50!! ouch) may remember seeing a track called “Cor Baby, That’s Really Free” by John Otway and Wild Willy Barrett from 1977 which (bearing in mind there was no internet or social media) was broadcast on the Old Grey Whistle Test (presented by whispering Bob Harris) and Top Of The Pops.
The success of Cor Baby allowed John to be known as a One Hit Wonder................

In 1999, the BBC held a poll as part of National Poetry Day to find the nation’s favourite song lyrics. The results include songs by the Beatles, Queen, John Lennon, and (you’ve guessed it) John Otway with “Beware of the Flowers cos I’m Sure They’re Gonna Get You, Yeah”

Here’s that great old sing-along: Beware of the Flowers..............
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cihz-Ftq6wU


John had a dream for second hit, and the movie tells the story of how he decided to let his fans select a song from a selection, and the fan-based strategy adopted to try and make the top 20. Its a bit of under-dog vs the establishment.
The second hit was (as you all know – ahem!!) Bunsen Burner, and John returned to the Top of the Pops studio.

He played a crazy drum solo by putting drum pads in his pockets & beating himself up! The guitarist with him played while stood on top of a stepladder, before somersaulting off the top onto the stage -while still playing.

The drum-pads 'song' would have been Body Talk.

Somersaulting from the stepladder? Sounds like that would have been John himself, probably during his version of You ain't Seen Nothin' Yet (originally done by Bachman Turner Overdrive / BTO)

Guy Martin’s Great Escape

Sun 8th Dec 2019

Ch4  9pm

Guy attempts a re-creation of the motorcycle jump from the film The Great Escape, but with the difference that he wants to clear both fences.


It’s worth noting that although Steve McQueen had the lead role of Hilts (who stole the bike etc etc), it was his good friend Bud Ekins who performed the jump sequence.

McQueen & Ekins worked together in the film Bullitt, most notably during the car chase as the guy on a motorcycle takes a tumble is Bud, whislt McQueen’s character waits and looks over his shoulder waiting for the poor motorcyclist get to his feet before chasing after the Charger.

The story of the Great Escape motorcycle side of things from the Bud & Dave Ekins website
https://www.budanddaveekins.com/the-great-escape-jump/

Back in 2009, The Sunday Times did what was titled as a renactment of the (single) jump using a Meriden Triumph twin which is considerably closer to the film bike than the machine used in Guy's programme

From what I've seen on the TV, its a car-only event at the circuit (ie not at the house).

There's a mix of events including some 'normal' races as per the Revival, a Drifting competition which includes a bit of the track by the chicane and some of the normally-pedestrian area, another one-car-at-a-time event (rally cars) which includes blatting it through the entrance tunnel, and a shoot-out competition where one car at a time does a standing start lap against the clock (includes modern winged single seaters).

The tin-top circuit race was pretty good. Galaxies, minis, capris, escorts etc

We love Bangers and Cash!  It's the best car (and bike) programme on tv - no bulls**t, no-one trying to be anything they're not, no over-dramatising, just a great, really entertaining programme!   We don't even care how many times we watch repeats either.

Secrets of the Transport Museum.

Tues 30th March 2021  (the first of 10 scheduled episodes, so maybe its time to fire up the old Betamax)

Yesterday  8.00pm


A programme looking behind the scenes at the Brooklands Museum in Weybridge, Surrey.
For info, Brooklands was the world's first purpose-built motor racing circuit.

From the Brooklands website:
Go Behind the Scenes at Brooklands Museum

Welcome to Brooklands, the birthplace of motor racing, a powerhouse of British engineering, and home to one of the world's most extraordinary collections of historic vehicles, with their roots embedded in this incredible site. 

With hundreds of cars, aircraft, buses and motorbikes, maintaining a collection like this is no mean feat. An army of volunteers work day-in, and day-out to keep these crown jewels of British transport in tip-top condition. 

In this new UKTV series by Middlechild Productions airing Tuesdays from 30th March at 8pm on Yesterday channel, we follow the engineers and speed fanatics responsible for ensuring these magnificent machines can fly, race and drive another day.

Watching this one at the moment. I've moved in with my girlfriend so now have access to a tellybox -they'll never catch on.
Nice to see somewhere I know, although obviously it features the usual "reality" TV fake jeapordy -will they fix it in time? Of course they will, just in time for a happy ending.
Nice motors though :)

Tellybox - is at 405 lines or the more modern 625 lines monochrome, I hear 625 is a bit better. Rumour has it, the boffins are trying to make a tellybox that will receive colour - yeah right!  ;D
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/405-line_television_system

Jeopardy - agree  :D. If memory serves me, seem to remember something along the lines of "catastrophic failure" and "major disaster" being used in the progs so far.

Let's hope the prog gets some of the younger generation interested in "spannering" eh.

The team checking for corrosion on Concorde's wing referred to ACF-50.
For those interested, here's a link to the product.

Secrets of the Transport Museum.

Apparently a second season of Secrets of the Transport Museum has been commissioned following the huge success of the first 10 episodes, with filming due to begin(at Brooklands) in July, and airing planned for early 2022.

Seem like some folks in TV land like old vehicles, oil and spannering, which is nothing new to certain MMM folk.
