That was an awesome sound. To finally hear the Allard fire up after all these years on display as a museum piece was a fantastic sight to see, and I was pleased to have witnessed it first hand. Great vid Jon. one that will go down in the annuals of time.

This is the best video so far. Nice to see you are at last taking credit for the excellent work you do documenting these historic occasions.

I think I said that the cacklefest shots were the first public fire up of Ally. I had forgotten about this one we did in the pits - which is in fact a lot cleaner and not so lumpy.

This weekend the team will be perfecting the change over sequence from methanol to nitro along with more renovation work to the body and other parts needing attention. Lots more to do before she's back to her old self.

that'll also be 50 years since it's last pass at Blackbushe 4th October 1964, give or take a week...

Correct Nick. There is some interest over the Pond to celebrate this occasion and returning the favour by going over to the USA seems apt. Much work to do to make it happen but it looks promising.
