    Hi Guys - Well after some issues, holdups, false alarms we knocked it off! The current series (weekly half hour shows) will feature an interview, a machine, and a historic racing news section. Sponsorship and advertising has got us out to February and we have seven interviews and four machines "in the can". This week we kick off with EPISODE 1 - David Oxton/Fleetwood Mustang. We hope you will view, share, subscribe and most importantly ENJOY! Thanks to our initial advertisers on the show we can bring you the first four weekly episodes through to Christmas, You can view them in SD on Sky Channel 83 (Face TV) or in HD on the Legends of Motorsport YouTube channel. If you subscribe to this YouTube channel you do two things - you receive notification when the next show is up, and you support this endeavour in raising support to continue and to upgrade.

    We have some great champions to come and plenty planned in the pipeline. Meantime view EPISODE 1 here;

    It would have been nice to have seen more clips or action photographs during the interview with David Oxton, but it was still enjoyable.

    It didn't come up on the MySky programme guide, even the day before showing, but thanks to an email from HRC and also JT, we had some notice of the broadcast time and channel, even though the guide said it was a concert!

    Thanks for the feedback ERC. I'll follow up on the Sky programme guide.

    Consideration given to using this forum for suggestions on content, on questions you would like asked if we have advance notice on the next group of interviewees, and seeking photos we could have permission to use.

    Remember our budget at present is paying costs only so this constrains what we can do. Next year that will change I'm confident based on the feedback and viewership.we've had in two days. Early days, there's so much more we would like to do with the basic concept you see today.

    Emphasising subscribing to the Legends of Motorsport Youtube Channel, Google will only monetise channels with 1000+ subscribers, that's the first bar with that outlet, plus those statistics help command advertising. My plea to you all is -
    View, Share, Like, Subscribe.

    Thanks for your constructive Ray. Appreciate we are getting the initial programs up on an extremely small budget. We want to involve you all as historic motorsport followers in this endeavour and believe there are enough compelling subjects to run a weekly show for a long time if we have the support.

    Photos - this is something that the people on this forum can help with. We also will be asking for questions you would like put to our interview legend.

    Episodes 3 and 4 are now cut and ready to go to air over the coming weeks then we take a break of at least 4 weeks.

    What photos can we have access to for Garry Pedersen (especially the GEMCO, B&H), Ginger Molloy, and Rod Millen who have all been interviewed.

    Shortlisted to be interviewed is 5 times NZ Champion Paul Fahey. What question do you most want to hear Paul answer about his legendary career? Who has photos of Paul and his cars Anglia, Mustangs, FVA Escort, Cologne Capri? Maybe even his earlier motorcycle career.

    I have just watched the first 2, well done. Both have such lengthy careers that it would be impossible to cover everything, but yes, even the back wall with pics of the interviewee cars to point to would be great.
    Well done though. Thanks.
