I do too, though I fear some of these are not totally "on thread"...

Even more off thread than some of those above, this is a very small ad on a wall near the pits at Rheims, taken pretty close to get the detail...

Those last two shots of Don's show vividly how safety has moved on in F1. Impossible to have any sort of frontal impact in those without injury?

Nice thread David, bravo for kicking it off! :up:

Many marvellous shots - any chance a book might be worth publishing? That's me asking as someone with no knowledge of the book business by the way so don't be too harsh on me if it's a completely insane idea...
