Interesting article here,

I've seen bits of this clip before but don't recall seeing the whole thing.
But I am getting older....

I haven't seen that film before either...thanks for posting.

Fascinating listening to him talking about making a business work in 1968, with many of the same challenges still in evidence today.

Here's one of my favourite films showing Chapman racing. It's a fun race in Escort Mexicos, with Jack Brabham, Frank Williams, Ken Tyrrell and other team managers.. Grotty quality, but still a great watch!
