From time to time, interesting videos are posted on the www featuring Matras.

A few of us enjoy watching them, so please post here if you come across one worth watching.

A good place to start is of course the YouTube.

I have two favorites there:

Interview with Henri Pescarolo about his famous crash in the Matra 640: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCv0QqxKEiw

And this one showing a wonderfully tuned J. P. Beltoise Murena on a mountain rally track:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_dzVCHeH54

So... go on! start digging! Smiley

Cheers,
Anders

I've a dvd called "la course en bleu", ou quelque chose comme cela ...

Half of it is on Matra . The other half on another little blue french car  Cheesy

But my favorites are here
1) With my 1975 Bagheera S on Spa Francorchamps tracks : http://naze2ooo.free.fr/images/spa_petit_avant_gout.mpg
2) With my 1979 Bagheera X on the same location  Grin http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=_zCBm7h-D5I

I can try to extract some part of this DVD

AFAIK yes, I think it's a Sodemo tuned 2.2, bored to 2.5 and turbo charged to 360 hp Cheesy

I think you are right, it's a group 4 Murena - they were N/A with very hot cams. I just re-watched the video and it stikes me that it's new - notice the Feu-Vert posters: I doubt if that business existed in the 80's and if they did, I'm sure they didn't have the same logo as they have today. This must be one of the actual cars that Politecnic used to run - wonderful! Cheesy

I like the turn with the yellow Bagheera and the gold Murena at 4:03, especially the way the Bagheera seems to handle the turn.
Pity we don't have any snow here now...!
