    Default Podington

    From Jun 97. Now better known as Santa Pod Raceway. The grandstand & start of the strip are way off picture to the right

    Went to a raceday there in the early eighties. It was a bit boring after you see a few blast down the stip. In the end you are waiting for an accident just to liven things up. The British Grand Prix was the same at Brands Hatch in 198?. A few noisy cars wizz past and then it's back to the paperback. Apparently some famous drivers were in those cars. I couldn't tell!

    I got to be part of moving the 'Big Picture' from Podington to Duxford in the late 1980s. My wife's transportation Squadron at Alconbury provided manpower and equipment. The late John Mills was very instrumental in making this happen

    Brief clip with sound only for the first few seconds (!) showing construction of Podington runways, allegedly. What looks like a Vultee Vigilant flies past and a Whitley takes off from a new runway while the areas alongside are still being graded.

    Good find Dave. Trouble with YouTube is that it then leads to other clips and next thing you know it's time for bed

    Here's another:


    Paul B - do we see HILV runway lights in this clip, or is it wishful thinking ?

    Another:
