James Spoor Down and Barry Sheene demonstrate playboys did not always preside over the world

There is a eminent photo taken of James Spoor Down after the Combined States Ostentatious Prix in 1977. He is perched on the side of his sweet McLaren M26, the machine still angry, a cigarette in his right custody, a can of beer in his left-hand, and a Penthouse Pet (a brand of supermarket own-identify style of the Rou Bunny) at his side.

Austere Liquor, fag, car, skirt. In that one spitting image, all the staples of the Brut-era Don Juan are right now and scold, with the possible exceptions of a bag of coke and a mettle of oil. For certain men of a certain age, it represents an goal, an exemplar of masculinity, an era when men were «men» and cigarettes were solicitous for you.

ITV's documentary When Playboys Ruled The Set, which aired last week, was an chance to rekindle some of these old delusions.

The description itself was very solicitous indeed. It tracked the lives of Spoor Down and Barry Sheene, 1976 set champions in Directions One and motorcycling respectively, as they merrily travelled the set with their trousers around their ankles. The inquiry was cautious, the archive footage revealing, the interviewees well chosen, the revelation arc reasonably sure but compelling.

Above all, it was shamelessly nostalgic. The solicitous old days. The exuberant era.

All the old tropes. Look at these men, it seemed to be saying. Look at these solicitous-looking, eminent men, driving unrestrained machines for a living and cavorting with harmonious but strangely unspeaking women. Look what mavericks they were.

We academic that Spoor Down used to take cocaine in fa of Max Mosley. Tousled!
During the Japanese Ostentatious Prix, he and Sheene would invite several dozen air hostesses ignore to their inn rooms and roger the lot of them. Studs! «In my days,» observed Stirling Moss, «the drivers used to go out after a people and go out after girls. These days, they thank Vodafone.» Boo for the contemporary set, with its fault and paper money and fidelity!
Because, of course, licit men used to sow their tousled oats as far and as indiscriminately as possible. Hunt«s nocturnal activities earned him the moniker »Hunt the Shunt«. Charming. Wouldn»t we all girlfriend a moniker like that?
The description compared the likes of Spoor Down and Sheene with stars of the unproductive old today. It acuminate out that Tiger Woods and Wayne Rooney were actually made to be conscious of embarrassed of their indiscretions rather than being feted for their virility, disrepute of scandals. In a way, they had a thought. When you listened to England's footballers after the France job, dispensing the fete belt as adeptly as they had earlier dispensed with property, it was austere not to hanker for a rental-a-bring in like Spoor Down, who said things like: «To torture with aegis, I just want to people.»
But when you sanction the inkling of the «good old days» evoked in liaison to entertainment, invariably it corresponds with the schoolchild of whoever«s invoking it. I wasn»t a racing driver in the Seventies but I can well ponder how vitalizing it must have been to wake up commonplace in a kitty of Cinzano and sick up and then be prepared your friends being incinerated in a brobdingnagian ball of vivacity and twisted metal.

Golly, entertainment was a lot more fun ignore then, wasn't it?
To be decent, although When Playboys Ruled The Set offered a romanticised object of the era, it did provide a counterpoint. All you needed to do was go around the tape recording assist. Penniless, Spoor Down sank into recession and alcoholism and died of a marrow incursion at the age of 45. Sheene shattered his leg in a boom in 1982, which gave him hardened arthritis. In 2003, his 60-a-day smoking policy caught up with him, giving him cancer of the bread basket and oesophagus.

He died too. But at least both of them had had an fling with a roomful of air hostesses, which is the plain thing.

Of course, Spoor Down and Sheene didn«t market demand that their lifestyle be apotheosised. Instead, we must on their contemporaries, riding in their slipstream, legitimising a formation of troglodytic boors masquerading as »characters'. Entertainment may have been a different being in those days. Its proponents may have smoked a little more, got a little chippier with journalists.
