Nigel Roebuck has mentioned that "My best memories of Zandvoort? The mesmeric fight in the rain between Jacky Ickx and Pedro Rodriguez in 1971". I seem to recall a photo of those two in the issue of 'Road&Track' covering that event; it showed, quite clearly, one of the drivers intently looking into his rear-view mirrors at the car so close behind.
I was wondering if anyone had a copy of that picture anywhere?

Surprisingly, I remember that pix well. It's not the one stavelot posted. It was under breaking, with Ickx in front, and a very clear shot of his eyes through his visor watching his mirror instead of the approaching corner. Pedro was right on this tail.

Can't remember the issue for sure, but usually, the early June races would appear in the September or October issue.

There is a far better pic that appeared in Road & Track. You can see Jacky's eyes as he checks out the "Mad Mexican" in his mirrors.

Thanks, all!
The photos were good, but not the one I remember. Guess I was hoping that someone had a copy buried in their attic and could scan a copy. I don't recall if Autocourse had the same picture in it that year or not. Unfortunately, all of my Autocourses from 1969 to the present vanished during a move....

I have a copy buried somewhere but it will likely be months before I uncover it. But I remember it well.

There were two photos, the first the close up of Jacky checking his mirrors with the caption:

"You are Jacky Ickx. You are leading the race. And..."

Then the zoomed out photo showing the BRM on the Ferrari's tail, with the caption:

"Pedro Rodriguez is this far behind you."

If no one finds it first I will scan it in some future month.

Hmmm...I wonder if this was the September issue? That issue had LeMans, Monaco, a Ronnie Peterson profile and an article w/ Denny Hulme. I think the Dutch race may have been in that issue.
