Hi All

Can someone have a look and see if they can identify this?

How about Le Mans, 1956 - Ferrari 500 TR #21 (chassis #0624) - driven by Tavano and Meyrat ?
See: http://www.barchetta...4MDTR.500TR.htm
Looks like Hawthorn in a D Type passing the scene ....

Yep, that's what I came up with in this thread, which also includes a picture of it from the front. It was picture number 3, but BorderReiver seems to have removed them.

And it looked so nice before it was bent. Sorry the image is so small

Does anyone know where on the circuit the accident happened?

According to Dominique Pascal's "Porsches at Le Mans", the collision was on the straight between Maison Blanche and the pits.

Footnote:
In fact, Richard, I hadn't seen the previous thread, before. However, thinking that I could just make out a 'Scudetto' above the wing vent, I followed a similar line of logic that you used in your post #11, and flicked through the pages of Dominique Pascal's 'Ferrari at Le Mans'. On page 30 there is half page B&W photo of the aftermath of the accident, taken from a similar angle to the one in your post #13, but earlier on the Saturday night, not long after the accident had taken place (10:00pm). Tavano was flung out of the car, but got away with just a broken nose. The Porsche (#26) was destroyed, and it's driver Glöckler suffered burns and a broken leg.
It's seems strange, given the current market value of TR's, that #0624 is one of the very few NOT to have been restored or 'resurrected' (yet?) ....
