Simon Arron covered several rounds of the 1983 British F3 Championship, but missed the Thruxton decider between A Senna and M Brundle. He and Brundle discussed the campaign when the latter was reunited with his Ralt RT3 at Silverstone. We borrowed another top-line F1 analyst, too, when David Coulthard drove Jim Clark’s Lotus 25. Aiming a lens while hanging out of a camera car’s hatch is a tricky gymnastic feat, and Matt Howell says he came closer to falling under the wheels than ever before, but the shots are excellent, which bodes well for his entry in the Taylor Wessing portrait prize. Lotus expert Doug Nye has been peering at 25s as well, uncovering some important new facts. Recent recruit Alex Harmer trained in film production, but has become our first online guru. Between tweets he flew to BMW Classic, to see how they restored a Brabham BT52.
