Esprit videos on Youtube, hundreds of 'em...!


The Pits

Recommended Posts

only just spotted this little gem!

 

 

can't believe how well Barrie's Essex holds off the GT3 down the straights, the performance in 1980 must have been outrageous, the Ferrari 308 of the day would have been toast! Looked pretty tidy in the corners too. Oh, and you can see the gleaming Compomotives reflecting on the track surface. What a car!

 

:thumbup: 


Could be time to change the thread title!

I was testing a new chip that day (bad decision) and it was absolutely abysmal. I must have been 40 brake down, and was literally matching Bazza on the straights. Chip was history next day.

British Fart to Florida, Nude to New York, Dunce to Denmark, Numpty to Newfoundland.  And Shitfaced Silly Sod to Sweden.

those guys in 'behind the drive'  ..should read about more, especially about the Esprit  ;)

 

Esprit shown with S350 wheels ..instead of the factory version for a typical V8(SE)

-S350 front lip added afterwards -mentioned 'ground clearance'

or:

..talkin about "AP racing" brakes with 320mm all around  :D    ...and camera points on BREMBO calliper

 

aftermarket steering-wheel is an other point ..but the best detail is his two finger shift on the first ride, prior to the driver change

 

 

 

'has sound & presence'  ..for sure not with factory exhaust -right !?

oh dear, can't help

Not sure if this is what you had in mind....   Anyway this was a short test of my Phone camera:

Look up mine "damfastgang" I have so much lotus footage from inside my own car and also from Throckmorton, I filmed the guys making the film, in fact I think I captured more, my own car had a puncture on the day, I went up there with my pal in his Elise.

What I need is time to upload more, I also have "damfastgang02" which has my last  V8 chasing my pal Lee's "Countach"

off to check out the damfastgang now, sounds like my cup of tea.


Bibs, please feel free change the thread title to 'Esprit videos'?

 

It's getting like the 'what did the Romans ever do for us?' sketch!

Nice one Bibs! Much better thanks.

 

It's so woeful I wasn't going to bother posting this, but what the heck, it's got an Esprit in it.

 

Apologies in advance.

Buddsy thats either the worst Esprit video ever or the most artistic!

 

It's Friday so I'll go with artistic. Moody, minimalist. So atmospheric.

 

Like all the great directors a lot was left to the imagination!

 

Genius!

Nice work Buddsey! A hit man leaving the scene of the crime in a hurry!

 

Looks fast and sounds great.

 

:clap: 

 

Hope to compare notes at MBW.

 

cheers!

Good video mate but despite the gloves your steering wheel looks very very dirty now, full of oil....so best you can do is to send it to me and I will send you a brand new one from Momo..... :sofa:

 

BTW, is always quite impressive for me to see a fast drive on the wrong side of the road :harhar:
