Goodwood / Lister Jag / Chris Harris Video

The Lister-Jaguar "Knobbly" was the hot setup in sports car racing in 1957, but it inspired Lance Reventlow to
 build the Scarab ("we can do better").  The one-off Lister-Jag coupe in the video didn't make any impression
on FIA GT racing back-in-the-day.  But at Goodwood in modern times, the ante has been considerably upped
with demon-tuned engines and retired professional "ringer" co-drivers...

I don't need much of an excuse to post another Goodwood video, especially when it includes an Alfa Giulietta Sprint Veloce.  Or, for that matter, the GT racers that stirred my blood back-in-the-day and still do. The video runs 18 minutes.  It tells a story, and is therefore best watched from beginning to end. (Sorry, you thumbnail-scrolling, race-footage seekers...)

I love the look of this car. Obviously, I'm old.
