Alain De Cadenet’s new show: “Renaissance Man”

(photo taken from VeloceNews)

I’m puzzled as to why there is minimal information present online about Mr. Vintage Race Car and his brand new show debuting this Monday on Velocity.  The show isn’t listed in the list of shows on the network website, and when I do a search I find a few scanty details and no official information.   I just happened to see a short little advertisement on Velocity when i was flipping the channels earlier this weekend.

What I have been able to find out from listing information on the channel’s schedule is the follows:

Episode 1: Alain de Cadenet navigates the history of the iconic Lancia Ferrari D50 through restoration of the original cars to racing it on the track at the Goodwood Revival Meeting.

Episode 2: Alain de Cadenet explores 3 of the most important 20th Century British motorcycles, historic and contemporary classics Brough, Norton, and Triumph.

Sounds pretty great to me!  Alain’s Victory By Design series is one of the great classics in automotive videos of recent years—-and his gentlemanly take on vintage cars and race cars is pretty much always great to listen to.  I can’t wait to see what he has in store for this new series which debuts tomorrow (February 20th) on Velocity channel at 10pm (EST).

    I was always a fan of Victory by Design. Hope he still wears the goggles.

    I just saw the first one (in USA that is?) mainly about the 1950’s F1 Lancia-Ferrari F50. Hour long show and really quite well done. They actually spent the time showing the CAR (unlike Top Gear and other shows that only use the cars as background for stupid antics) and it was not only historically accurate and informative but nicely presented.

    It would be good if they continued more of these. Maybe even promote them a bit?

    Clearly the the finest automotive program the Velocity Channel has to offer. Alain Dr Cadenet has all the proper credentials and passion to to make the show very enjoyable and informative. Well done!

    What about the importance of the Vincent motorcycle – engineering ahead of its’ time ? Let alone top speed recognition in the day… Absolutely LOVED the episode about the Merlin engine used in the WWII airplanes.

    Very well done! No flashing from shot to shot and no “we have to move Mt Everest in 17 minutes” drama. Keep them coming.
