I can't recall ever seeing Johannes Willenpart's Lotus 64 before. This unrestored example bore Jochen Rindt's name, & I wonder which chassis of the 3 built it is?

Mornin' Giraffe!

Could only get to the FOS yesterday. Great day despite the wind and showers in the morning. Said hello to Gregor and "Old Nail" in the afternoon.

According to the chassis plate it's 64/3 Was this the car at Donington back in the 1980s?

Yes indeed, and what a wonderful ambassador for the sport. I watched him trying to discuss something with the Renault people, but he was constantly called away to pose with what seemed like an endless succession of middle-aged women who wanted to be photographed with him. He charmed them all, good humouredly skipping to and fro over the barrier, smiling and putting his arm around them while pics were taken. He also signed a lot of autographs, which he did with some care, not quite in the Johnny Rutherford league, but not all that far off it, not for him the unintelligible scrawl that many offer. I'm sure he was pleased to be remembered by so many, but the sport could certainly do with a few more like him, and he wasn't a bad driver in his day either, one of the stars of this year's Festival.

Hi signed an autograph for my girlfreind (I won't tell her that she's middle-aged though!!) and he was put out that she had got Alain Prost's before his but was in good humour and a lovely chap.

Apologies to those that I missed on Friday - I was at Goodwood for 4 days and the only free time I got was 90 minutes yesterday afternoon when I went for a wander!!

This was the first time I've driven/competed at the FoS and I have to say that I have never been so busy, stressed and nervous and c*cked up Sunday morning's run ( :blush: ) but luckily it all came good for me in the afternoon shoot out (I improved my time by over 4 seconds!!) and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thanks to all TNFers who I did talk to and who sent me messages. :clap:

There was a lot of money about today
The 1908 GP Itala went for £ 1,737,500 including commission which seems exceptional until you look at the next lot but one:
The Birkin Bentley 1929-31 single seater went for £ 5,041,500 and
The Birkin/Howe Le Mans 1932 8C Alfa Romeo went for £ 2,689,500

at those prices will we ever see them race again?
I suppose we just have to be pleased that we did see them race


Apparently they all went to the same guy, the same guy who bought the alloy 300SL and the other top cars at Goodings recent sale in America.

A few of my happy snaps from the Friday = starting with as nice a set of 24 cylinders as you could hope to see.

Tony Brooks in the Syracuse Connaught. I'd hoped to tell him how much I enjoyed "Poetry In Motion" but was outflanked by autograph hunters.


The autograph hunters were a bit of a surprise and rather overwhelmed Tony, there were plenty of genuine people who wanted to meet him and had personal books/photos etc they wanted signing but the professionals (quickly labelled Ebayers by 'the team') who wanted multiples signing meant we sometimes had to do some 'bouncing' (in a door supervision way) to protect him - he is a lovely, polite, 82 (?) year old man who was far too polite to tell people to go away even when he was tired, so we occasionally had to protect him which means that some genuine fans were sidestepped which was disappointing to all of us and I apologise to anyone who missed the opportunity to meet him and I'm sure Tony feels the same.

I'm absolutely knackered and roughly half Tony's age (in my dreams/bad maths) and can't imagine how he found the energy to meet everyone let alone drive the car!
BTW when you put an ex-F1 driver in a car and give him a rev-limit he will use exactly that, even at 82 years of age, no namby pamby I'll keep it down and pootle along stuff!!

If anyone else has any photos of the Connaught (with/without Tony) I'd love to have them (I think you can find my e-mail address via the forum if not PM me), I did not find time to take many myself.

No complaints from my end, Peter - and as a mere bystander, I felt sorry for him being slightly overwhelmed by the throng (the character that emerges in his book suggests he's far too pleasant to tell people to b*gger off and I certainly didn't want to add to the problem). The nearest he got to delivering even a slight rebuff was when he donned his helmet, clearly implying "Right, now please let me go to work." Another time, I hope.

Peter, it may have been you that my son and I spoke to on Saturday morning. We had a brief chat about professional autograph hunters ( I told you about seeing how they pursued Vic Elford) and you advised us to return at 3.30pm. We did so and had a brief chat to Tony who kindly signed my copy of Poetry in Motion and then a bit of banter with Pina who also signed it. She said to me "you don't want my signature", but I assured her that I did as it was her story too. I didn't catch the name of the blonde lady who was helping deal with the public but thanks to her and yourself it was a pleasure to meet one of my heroes. Really made my day.

Yes it is (and the other one), thank you.

The only pictures I really took myself were detail photos of the instruments since one of the next tasks is to try and get some instruments that actually work....
Oddly enough my girlfriend didn't think they were very interesting photos when I showed them upon my return.

Paul I remember the conversation and I'm glad you managed to meet Tony - when we talked in the morning I was working on timetable version F and did not realise they had issued version G(!) and then there were the delays, which meant that by the afternoon we had no idea whatsoever about when we were expected to perform!!
Pina is a lovely lady isn't she, all of us really enjoyed spending time with Tony & Pina.
The blonde chaperone would have been Sarah Diffey, wife of Simon who was doing the early morning drives - unsurprisingly Tony didn't fancy having to get up early to drive while the spectators were still queuing to get in!

Hi Tony,

A closer view of the chassis plate.

Posted Image

Maybe this space might get filled with a suitable power unit one day (like 64/1). Wonderfully original, though. How extensive is Johannes Willenpart's collection. I see that there were the three cars exhibited (49/6; 72/4; and 64/3) plus the GLTL AEC transporter. Lovely to see them at Goodwood, so grateful thanks to their owner. I must try and find some pics taken at Donington as I'm pretty certain that 64/3 was exhibited there for a little while. 64/1 was rebuilt by Classic Team Lotus and appeared at the FOS in 2008. Does anyone know what became of the late John Foulston's car?

Posted Image

The offside front endplate looked like it had been kicked a few times by later in the day!

I believe Joe owns a collection of ex-Rindt cars including the 49, 72 and 64 plus a 69 F2 car, as well as a Brabham BT18, and the Senna test Williams FW08C

[quote name='Odseybod' post='5798984' date='Jul 1 2012, 21:24']Maserati 151/3. Last time I saw this, it was a crumpled heap beside the Mulsanne straight after Casner's fatal crash. It's hoped it will be running at the Revival.

Posted Image

I read somewhere on the net that the 151/3 that TT saw in a 'crumpled heap' in 1965 was 'scrapped', is the car we saw at Goodwood the vehicle Peter Kraus had built in the 1980's (?) using the original buck or a more recent resurrection of of the 'scrapped' 'crumpled heap' that TT saw at Le Mans in 1965.

Relevant answers maybe credited and used to correct a blog.

David Beard's one? - I have to agree if so, it's my favourite out of all of these brilliant photos, and I can't put my finger precisely on why. Maybe because it has so much detail without looking cluttered, a study of man and machine. I keep getting drawn to look at it again. :up:

Hopefully without appearing unduly morbid, here's a ropey scan of a dodgy little print from what was probably never going to be one of my better shots - but it does show 151/3 as I last saw it.

A surprising amount of the tub seemed to have survived but I'd say it's definitely a restoration in the 'suit enthusiast' category.

The car in Goodwood last weekend is not the rebuild wreck of Castner.
In the early 90s Peter Kaus got permission from De Tomaso to made a replica based on the original mock-up of the car. Kaus also found the original engine of the wreck. Everything went to the Louwman-Collection some years ago and was auctioned by Bonhams. The current British owner commissioned an exact replica of the Castner-151 and the many visual mistakes of the Peter-Kaus-body were corrected. The original motor had been sold by Louwman seperately but could be purchased for this project.

Precisely Alan, and Hill did drive the car in practice on at least one occasion.

The programme does tend to be somewhat economical with the truth, and also alludes to the aforementioned Maserati Tipo 151/3 as being THE car that Casner lost his life in.....
Mean looking machine, nontheless....

The programme tells me that he also owns this 63 (which "Graham Hill and Jochen Rindt refused to drive"?!?!). I presume this the ex-Dawson-Damer car?

Tony,

I don't believe so, I understand this is the car which was in the Donington Collection. I do not know for sure whether the Dawson-Damer car was rebuilt after its owner's unfortunate demise at the FoS.

Michael, Tony,

Wasn't the rebuilt Lotus 63 part of the Dawson-Damer collection sold at auction (Bonhams?) in 2008?

Looking at the position of the stickers etc it certainly looks like the Donington car.

Did anybody get a picture of the Mercedes C291 with the engine cover off?

Historically significant as the last in a long line of Untertürkheim built racing engines?

The Eagle is a stunning car. It's certainly one of the best looking cars yet designed.

We had a great weekend and it was terrific to finally get an outright fastest time of the weekend despite getting pipped in the shootout. For anyone interested we filmed the shakedown of the Leyton House - the rear ride height is now 3mm higher...
