Talking of old farts: despite huge investment by MSV, some of the fixtures are getting a bit crumbly. :smoking:


At least his trainers look new :)

I always find it annoying that the old cars have to compete carrying modern stickers. I know it is all about sponsorship either via the championship or if they are very lucky through personal deals. However I do think that it is inappropriate where these garish embellishments make the car look like a billboard. They should only carry the 'stickers' that were on the cars 'in period'!

:mad:


I'm more than happy to race my car without logos, if you're happy to pay for it! :rolleyes:

I certainly would not pay for your car but would not consider putting inappropriate stickers on my own car unless compelled to do so by the regulations.

Prompted by the huge success of the "personal photos from the paddock" thread, what about a place where we could post our own photos from the "track" , selected - of course- for their "artistic "nature ( who said self-indulgent , or pretentious ? )

It's Graham Hill's P83 at the 1966 Oulton Gold Cup (as posted here in the Oulton thread by Steve Jones). I'm puzzled by the Goodyear tyres, though.
