The Racers that Stopped the World

Post by BevC » Mon Aug 03, 2020 8:27 pm

For anyone interested and with access to Sky on Demand, Sky Go or Now TV there is a documentary (The Racers that Stopped the World) about the development of the disc brake with Sir Stirling Moss and Norman Dewis. Unbelievable to think it was 1952 - a really big leap forward in safety.
