Well, Pesca bought the ex-Lunger car, didn't he? Perhaps a test drive before the actual purchase, or before he came around to putting a splash of fresh colour onto it?

I reckon that is Pescarolo (at Brands).  The car had all-white sidepods - except for the number 18.  At first I thought the picture might have been photoshopped.

In my opinion, it's clearly Pescarolo - wearing his 1975-spec helmet - testing the Surtees at Brands, as mentioned.

Henri didn't compete in the entire 1976 season, so this could have been taken at a spring or early-summer test.

The monocoque, as opposed to the bodywork, appears to be 'virgin' white, telling me that it's his new chassis in readiness for his team debut at Monaco.

Just to add a little confusion into the mix racingsportscars.com show's Henri taking over chassis #01 from Brett at Monaco where Henri failed to qualify and Brett did not show up.
