Onboard lap of Silverstone pre-1991

Silverstone is one of the best known and most popular circuits in motor racing. It hosted the first ever Formula One World Championship Grand Prix in 1950, is currently the venue for the British Grand Prix. In the circuit’s 65 year history, the track has undergone a few major alterations and seen many minor modifications. One of the more significant re-designs took place in advance of the 1991 British Grand Prix.

This video shows the layout that was used up to and including the 1990 race. The car is a Lola-Lamborghini with a V12 engine, and was entered by the Larousse team. The driver is Eric Bernard. The year is not shown, but it is either 1989 or 1990, as those were the years that Eric Bernard raced with number 29 on his car. Commentary is by John Watson.
