Probably early 63, Pau or Imola. Rob Walker's Cooper t60.

My idea is that's preparations for 1963 Pau GP. Jo Bonnier and R.R.C. Walker's Cooper-Climax T60 is in the foreground, while Scuderia Filipinetti's Lotus-Climax 21 driven by Herbert Muller is visible in the background.

Isn't it of Ecurie Nationale Belge. Thus the one for André Pilette?

That would have been my choise too , but I have never seen that transporter before , ENB did not race F1 in 1963 , and Pilette had an aggreement with Tim Parnell (some co/work for transports). But It is a fac that entrants names do not always confer with the actual drivers , cars or transporters. (That is why I say there are no complete books on either F1 or World Championship/Sports cars) .

I may be talking off the top of my head but wasn't Pau F2? If so weren't Anglo-Spanish Racing around(Brian Classic &?????) which would fit as Spanish colours are Red & Yellow.
Just a thought

Any thoughts on this one? It turned up on Post-War Classic yesterday. The identity of the chap on the left is pretty obvious, but who are the rest and what are they looking at? Taken at Zandvoort, date unknown.

Hello to all and thanks so far , just found a picture saying The John Fisher Equipe , who was that?


The John Fisher Equipe ran Lotus 12 and Lotus 16 Formula 2 cars in 1959 for drivers such as Bruce Halford and Maria Theresa di Filippis.

Definitely checking a spark plug reading. Cahier is a good call, and the chap on the right looks familiar, too!

I think the chap between Clark and the Champion Technician plus the gentleman on the right wearing glasses are circuit officials (or club officials).

I would have thought if it was J Ickx, he was standing on a box.

The chap on the right with the glasses and suit looks familiar. One for GG?

I'd appreciate it if anyone can ID this Gp 7 car for me. I'm in the process of scanning all my old photos and, of course, to my shame many are un-captioned. I believe I took this picture at Brands during the 1986 GP meeting.

Many thanks

Nigel

I'm afraid it does not look like anything I recognise on the entry list :confused:

Thanks - I appreciate the comment. Maybe I got the event wrong - it's adjacent to the 1986 BGP frames on the neg, but not among them, if you know what I mean.

Could it be a late entry for the all important GP meeting perhaps ?

Well, I knew it wasn't a McLaren, and a bit more digging led me to conclude it's not a Lola either. I think it's a BRM P154, so I'll be trawling the old TNF threads.

I thought I recognised parts of the car, but the sponsor and rear wing threw me completely.

Were there Thundersports and Historic races at the Brands '86 GP meeting perhaps ?

The two photos below are from 1966 Innsbruck sportscar race held on 9th October.
They appear on the Vienna website (without ID) here.. http://www.technisch.../articleid/2262

The car/driver does not appear in the race program and is not listed on the RSC website so I would like some help with car/driver ID please.

Any info appreciated.
Thanks
Rob

Apart from the caption I don't find any mention of the car elsewhere. It just says the car resided in Switzerland for a while.

Bjorn was this a meeting with motorcycle and car races perhaps ?

Scroll down for an image of a ticket for 18.08.57 Sachsenring here.

Scroll down for some some motorcycle results here.

Willy Lehemann is credited with coming home 4th possibly on his Scampolo-BMW at the same meeting here :confused:

I believe it was both MC and cars , but the MC was the 17th . I have a picture in the book "Renntransporter" on page 129 , a paddock shot showing a British transporter etc. The text does say "a Dunlop service car" but they don't know that cars were advertising then.

But I read your lines and did a rethink.....BINGO , it is from the MC race , Len & Neil Tinker , so found out. Thanks for rattling me !

Sorry, can't add anything further, though one might guess that the yellow Veritas is from Belgium...

Eifelrennen 1951, the Veritas is Swedish (Wahlberg) and credits should be given to "Mr.Hudson" of fotocommunity for having published this shot.

It's Valdemar Stener's Ferrari 166 and Gunnar Wahlberg's Veritas RS at Eifelrennen 1952. They travelled together. Stener had sold the Veritas to BMW racer Wahlberg.

The official Swedish race-colours were blue chassis, yellow body with three blue ribbons over the hood. The Stener car got a variant of that...
