    Not a real problem just had to brake earlier than with modern brakes.

    i think that is why they left the gate open on the escape road. it is about 2km straight from there into Bathurst.

    The biggest problem with drims is getting rid of the heat. 10 laps around Bathurst at those speeds and thet would be starting to fade let alone 500 miles.


    Years ago, (maybe 10 years) I remember my dad telling me that he and my brother stopped off at Bathurst one Easter coming back from a 4CV weekend.

    Dad was in the standard 4CV and Steve was in his modified R12 powered car with 4 wheels discs. Steve couldn't believe how fast Dad was going down the mountain, Steve was having trouble sticking with him. Steve's thinking the old mans still got it when it comes to driving skill but Dad told hime later that after a lap or 2 the drum brakes had faded to completely nothing and he couldn't slow the car down no matter how hard he stood on the brakes.

    According to my extensive research this was a common scene at the first corner past the Conrod escape road, it's now a roundabout I think..

    This looks like a "staged" scene. I don't see much damage to headlights, grills etc, but bonnets and windscreens are damaged! It also appears that the manikins have been strategically arranged. Maybe a stunt to shock drivers into driving carefully?

    Found: I don't think it's Bathurst after all because it's spoken in French and overdubbed in Russian (I think), the above scene is at 49:10.

    I'm fairly sure your Morris is a Mercedes

    What a dangerous road, glad I don't live there.

    At least that would save time, the ambulance driver wouldn't have to search for the body.

    You must have sausage fingers to mistype to that degree.

    Default These Florides should hit a solid object

    Stopped at the Renault dealer in Richmond to have a look at the Floride in the front window. I'd still rather have the three in my garage no matter how rusty they are.

    back to Florides, I assume you've read the latest 4cv register issue of Fourword Graham - a bit dispiriting.
    cheers! Peter

    All kinds of (new) French cars lying on top of each other like toy cars after an old Parisian parking garage had collapsed.
    Paris, Rue Carpeaux, 1956.
    Recognizable are:
    RENAULT: Dauphine + 4CV (2x) + Prairie,
    CITROËN: Traction Avant (3x),
    PEUGEOT: 203 (3x),
    SIMCA: Aronde (3x) + Ariane,
    PANHARD: Dyna,
    Plus two unknown US-cars (I'm wondering if someone recognises them: one car is visible in the corner right under. The second one is visible right in the middle of this fabulous picture behind 3 bars, between two 203s).

    Judging by all of the suites I think this might be a serious one...
