Best of British Racing at RM Auctions 2015 Amelia Island Sale

A couple of promotional videos for RM Auctions 2015 Amelia Island sale coming up on March 14 ended up in my YouTube suggestions. So I had a look and figured I couldn’t be the only one interested.

First up is an extended look at a 1988 racing Jaguar XJR-9 (link here in case the video won't run). It was apparently one of only two built to IMSA specs, and is discussed by Martin Brundle, the driver of the other one (which no longer exists). For more details on the car, check out its page at RM Auctions. Quite a piece of art.

Continuing with our British theme, here’s some vintage footage of a 1955 Austin-Healey 100S at Sebring, appropriately enough in British racing green (also here if the video disappears). It’s the one sporting number 44. The video doesn’t show much racing but it’s shot at pit row. Interesting look at how much things have changed—they seem to be pouring fuel in with a funnel, and everything takes forever. RM Auctions provides more details on the car here.
