Default 1990's racing in Guernsey, Monaco and Key West film

I had a friend post this on his Facebook, and thought you guys might enjoy watching it.

I originally lived on Guernsey, before moving to Orlando 5 years ago, but enjoyed seeing the island again through the racing.

Hope you enjoy

Default Safety Comments

It was interesting to hear the thoughts on the safety of the sport, even 22 years ago!

I guess that even then, they knew the risks, but nobody has a failsafe solution to how to stop death or injury when traveling at speed

Default Website Link

Here is a link to a UK website, which has many movies and pictures archived.

Go to the movies tab along the top, and select your decade and event. Mainly European races, but may be a few US links in there too
