This pic really captures the essence of an era where a whole bunch of very fast and fearless privateers on reasonably competitive machinery made the 500 gps in general and the British GP in particular stick in the memory for ever. Thanks for this.
Ps. Is it my imagination or was the British GP weather better in those days as well? Remember getting absolutely roasted at the 1981 Siverstone GP. Absolutely fantastic times.
I well remember the infamous 1978 GP washout and the wet 1986 GP at Silverstone but they were nothing compared to the storm of Donington GP 2006.
Catalunya 2006 was decent though, i remember getting baked a bit there .
