Hi all! We have just done an interview with F3 and F2 ace, ex-Ferrari driver Jonathan Williams for our site. (Great guy BTW: generous, articulate, funny). It's pretty interesting IMHO, and he speaks of his experiences living race-to-race in F3, and unhappy memories of Ferrari as well as a few words on the Abarth F1 project and other things...

Anyway, we were wondering if any of you fine folks might have some pics of Jonathan that we might humbly borrow to illustrate the interview? We have a few from his website, but nothing of his early-60s F2 and F3 days... anyone?


Here's a tidbit while I wait...

What are some of your early memories of Frank Williams?

I met Frank at Mallory Park in 1961. I crashed my Mini on the damp track at the very fast Gerards corner, and then sat on top of the bank watching the suicidal antics of someone driving a grey Austin A35. Inevitably, it crashed and finished on its roof, and I helped Frank get out. We spent the time until the race ended discussing how to get our respective cars raceworthy ASAP, without having any money available. Piers had come along to help me, and that is when he met Frank for the first time. We all hit it off and became great friends.
