Dave Randall has sent us another vid to edit, a make you gasp stormer start, lots of gob smackers and a stinger end.  What is terrifyingly magnificent about Dave is his 1500cc Ginetta G4 isn't that powerful ... he just waits longer than everybody else before braking.  This is Dave at Cadwell Park 2006 dealing with a spinning Lotus ... twice.
