Driver and car I.D.

About 1965 ( I think) I took these pics at a Grand Prix at
Watkins Glen. On a some of them I am missing information.
I have been reading this site for a few months and am sure the people in here will know every car and driver in them. Some of them I think are rather interesting. So take alook if you will and help me out. The links below should lead you directly to them. Feel free to coment as much as you want. The pictures are all numberd so that should help. When I get the information I will update them.
Thanks in advance.

Pic 02 and 03 are Denny Hulme, not Jack Brabham. Brabham is in pic 12.
Pic 04 and 05 are Jim Clark's Lotus 33.
Pic 07 is Surtees, I think. Not sure who was driving the other Ferrari in pic 06. Bandini?
No doubt others can add more detail!

04 is indeed a Lotus 33, taken in 1966
05 is indeed a lotus 43, again taken in 1966
09 was taken in 1965
14 is indeed a Lotus 33, taken in 1965
15 was also taken in 1965
and 16 is Bob in an Eagle-Climax taken in 1966
These are indeed interesting shots. As we are currently producing a 1965 season mod for GPL some of the details are helpful. I'd always assumed the Honda badge had the word Honda as well as the H, but this is the first photo I've seen confirming it. The Brabham badge used in 1965 has always looked white before, but it looks silver in your photo.
Thanks very much for sharing. I don't suppose you have any more?
