Live Show – Ep 7: Gilles Villeneuve remembered; Enaam Ahmed on-line

This was a different sort of show for two reasons: 1) I decided to focus our AP Archive segment on just one race – the 1979 South African GP.  This was partly because we uncovered some amazing and quite extensive colour footage from that race and partly because it was won by Gilles Villeneuve.  And any race won by Gilles is always worth re-living in as much detail as possible. 2) Keen as we were to try a live link to a guest, I invited the very eloquent and intelligent Enaam Ahmed onto the show.  Enaam, 20, is not only amazingly talented but also a very refreshing guy with whom to spend time: he doesn’t conform to the Young Gun Stereotype; far from it.  He isn’t afraid to talk about his faults – and nor is he afraid to be open about his beliefs (he is a practising Muslim). On top of that, Enaam also recently contracted Covid19 – something that’s not supposed to happen to very fit, 20-year-old athletes. He spent three wretched weeks before recovering – and then began fasting for Ramadan. He talks about all that and more in this show – and he stays around for the 1979 South African GP segment, too; he’s that sort of racer. Enjoy.

Clark wins at Aintree

1962 British Grand Prix.A big thankyou to AP and their superb new archive for this short colour Movietone film of the 1962 British GP at Aintree.  The race resulted in a resounding win for Jim Clark and the Lotus 25-Climax but until now our feel for the occasion – well, mine, at least – has been limited to classic photographs – particularly those of Jim shaving the grass through Melling Crossing and of those famous shots taken from behind the grid as the flag dropped.  Now the last British GP to be staged at the Liverpool circuit comes to life as never before.
