Hello,

I search photos from the Formula 1 RENAULT-elf RE 30 1981 driven by Alain PROST and René ARNOUX.

It would be fantastic if the photos had been taken in the paddock during these grand prix:

MONACO 1981

SPAIN 1981

FRANCE 1981

GREAT BRITAIN 1981

GERMANY 1981

AUSTRIA 1981

NETHERLANDS 1981

ITALY 1981

CANADA 1981

USA Las Vegas 1981



Thank you very much,

Yours Sinceraly

Benoît

If you PM me your e-mail address, I can e-mail you my collection of pictures of the RE 30. I collected most of them of the internet, but I can't recall the copyright owner. Except these two.
The first is the first RE30, it never raced, but this picture was used for the add of Longines:

This is the picture I made in Zandvoort in 1981.

It was on friday, because I remember seeing this picture (taken by an other photographer) in de Telegraaf on Saturday.

Quite correct... and so is the other photo of the mechanics working on the gearbox. Sorry about that.

These are leaving the pits at Dijon 1981.

Was this when the height of the car was raised in the pits to meet ground clearance requirements and them lowered when they were on the track?

Fabulous shots !! Just look at the ground clearance and wishbone angle differences !!
Would you mind if I stuck these pics side by side to ease comparison ?

No problem. After sitting unloved and rarely viewed in my photo album all these years I am delighted that others enjoy them.
