Don't know how I missed this footage before...

Stellar post Dave, they ran those things on the ragged edge of desruction, engine life wasn't too much more than required to make it through the course . . . 328mph back then was like breaking the sound barrier . . . brave, ballsy blokes and Mitchell had an eye for aesthetics very rarely matched in the eighty years since . . . great shit man, thanks.

Dave, hope you're good.
There's some excellent racing footage in the film Spitfire.
How it took the Trophy to convince British top brass that Mitchell might be onto something.
