    Definetly made some progress since then. Great to see the lack of health & safety regs.

However I am testing new software methods which should allow Android Tablets & Phones, Iphones Ipads etc to see both the replay and live streams rather than just PC's as in the past. So I'd like members to try it. I'd appreciate feedback here on which device / browser you've tried and whether it worked or not. If it didn't can you please report what error message you saw.

    Thanks

    Hello, I have just watched on our iPad 3 and it loaded up very quickly and played with no buffering. Was it at Woburn ( before my time)?

    We've had about 50 hits with a variety of devices so it's looking good so far, but more hits and feedback would be welcome.

    I've been doing a bit of hover-archeology putting together a draft commentary to dub onto the video, using my own recollections and the invaluable help of Bulletin 5 (1967) from the HCGB's own online archive. The draft is also available at archive.hover-racing.org I'd welcome corrections and folk filling in the gaps.

    I think the video covers Isle of Wight & Sutton in Ashfield Rallies 1967 and a latter one unidentified. I've managed to id many of the characters of those historic early days - the first year of real HCGB events, pre racing but when many of the 'way we do things' was established.
