Hello Gary - yes, but from another film!
So we'd better have another picture of Mlle.Hardy (in a fake Eagle again):
And in this shot the journalist beside the car looks vaguely familiar, can anyone put a name to him:
I can announce that I have found some pictures which prove the existence of yet another 'out-take', a filmed sequence that didn't make it into the final cut, which I will post soon. How I wish I could get a sight of an original shooting script.....

I'm notoriously bad at faces, but was going to suggest Mike Kettlewell?

I have absolutely no idea what he was doing at this time, but he looks a bit like Peter Warr to me?

Was watching Dr Zhivago for the first time in ages the other day. I thought how much the soundtrack sounded like Grand Prix. I fired up the computer and Google to find that both movies had the same composer. Dr Zhivago was released in '65 and Grand Prix in '66. Interesting.

that's not Peter Warr with the microphone in his hand, an actor perhaps?

Yes, there was a link many moons ago, but I don't know where. Here is a photo I hadn't seen before of Garner driving at Willow Springs or Riverside before filming, and looking more like Jim Clark than Chris Amon:
Going back to the journalist/interviewer at Brands; I don't know what Mike Kettlewell looks/looked like, but I know it's not Peter Warr. I was wondering if it was a journalist from one of the British motoring mags - I can eliminate DSJ, Posthumus, Bolster, McNally, Blunsden, Boyd (and of course DCN) but another name is Peter Garnier.
I see that, as well as the film about the making of 'Le Mans', there is a new book by an insider - I wish there were someone willing and knowledgeable enough about GP to write one about it.

Paul, btw, there has been a lot of Grand Prix photos on e bay recently, unless that is the norm
