How British Motorsport Was Born is a short film (under 8 minutes) that takes a look at the modern day Brighton Speed Trials, whilst taking a look back at the history of British motorsport.

While the team at MotorPunk were at it, they tried their hand at breaking a 90 year old speed record in a proper British sports car – a Morgan 3 Wheeler.
