Channel 4 - Restoring a Race Car

Post by chrisgallacher » Mon Nov 21, 2016 10:10 am

Anyone watch last night's 'The Lost Lotus - Restoring a Race Car' on C4? If so you might have spotted Simon Drabble's Sabre Six being kissed by the spinning Alfa TZ1 in the 2016 Silverstone Tourist Trophy.

Some screen shots:

Yes I saw it - and cringed when the Sabre got hit.

It looks as though the Alfa came off worst. Maybe Simon could enlighten us?

I've just posted a piccy of the Sabre Six on its trailer showing the damage - it is in the "Sabre Six on Channel 4" thread

That's 2 Sabra/ Sabre TV sightings in a week. A few days before the Restoring a Race Car programme I watched an episode of US TV programme Chasing Classic Cars. They visited the Dezer collection museum in Miami and there was a nice shot of their red Sabra GT.
