Anothe lot from "Pollo's" current listing - Silverstone 1956

Oh for the want of an anti-roll bar! Possible a contender fro the St Mary's Trophy, if you threw a shedload of money at it.

No.10 is Bluebelle Gibbs' Riley. A car my Father owned for a while many years later.

Which Norris Dutchy? There was one on a Nash chassis with an Alvis engine, last I heard of that, Ian Stirling had it but I think Ian has now left us so i don't know where it is.

The venue should be easy if you happen to know it, which I don't. Perhaps Julian (Fuzzi) can help us.
Since both Norris Specials that we know are Alvis-engined Frazer Nash specials and the car concerned has semi-elliptic front springs it's not a Norris. Nor is it the Norris Alta of course.

Good point about the springs - I should have checked the obvious.

I was thinking of the first Norris (the one with the FWD Alvis engine), not that it's relevant now. It is alive and well and currently competing though the owner's name escapes me at present.

In the earlier sets I particularly enjoyed the '59 Gold Cup shots of 2 Lotus 16s, plus good profile views of Moss' Walker Cooper on rear wires, a legacy of Monza precautions, IIRC, although Trintignant ran with wires all round at Monaco I believe. Allowing for the built-in "chuckability" of the Cooper chassis design, I wonder how much looser the wires made them feel, as I recall that the Vanwalls ran wires at the front as the webbed alloys were too stiff on the front end.
There was also a nice period paddock shot of the Scirocco at a later Gold Cup

Unusual to see this edition on eBay: the original (1939) Lonsdale Library volume XXVII on Motor Racing, edited by Earl Howe. There is some duplication of content with the later volume XXXIII edited by SCH Davis. It's mainly technical articles, but a useful addition to any pre-war enthusiast's library.

Low start price, and I think a lot of dealers also under-price it, due to confusion between the two editions.

Just so's you know there is a batch of some 30 Geoffrey Goddard original darkroom prints being offered within eBay motorsport memorabilia at the moment, including a truly spectacular study of Aston Martin DB4GTZ 2 VEV careering through Melling Crossing at Aintree. Worth a look perhaps whether you feel moved to bid or merely to browse.

Merely type 'Geoffrey Goddard' into the eBay search function, press the wotsit and all should be revealed - Aston Martin, Ferrari, Ford GT, Mirage, Vanwall etc - and more to come, all printed by Geoff himself though not all bear his stamp simply because they were boxed as standby stock which would have been stamped when required.

Looks pre-war to me, but I can't think where. Obviously a part-completed housing estate or similar. Initial guess would have been Whitchurch, but Bloody Mary didn't run there. And I don't think it rained either.

Reading my newly-acquired copy of Peter Hull's "History of the VSCC", it occurred to me that these could be the 1937 Littleborough Sprint. The description of the course from 1936 on page 11 seems to fit and Bloody Mary ran there in '37.

It's not a particularly good buy - good 18 Juniors won't make much more than that and it needs money spending to put it right:
get rid of the rose joints
remove the silly roll over bar stays
repair the back of the chassis and either fit the right gearbox or at least the correct Hewland sideplates
and preferably remove all that horrible aeroquip, wrong water & oil tanks and whatever else you find hidden under the nose.

There's a better one for sale in the UK for £42,000 with lots of spares and another one in the States for $52,000.
Oddly enough the UK car has a very similar 'frame number' (987192) whatever that may be...

There are presently some very rare prints by Geoff Goddard of the 1958 'Monzanapolis' Two Worlds Trophy race being offered (not by me) under Motorsport Memorabilia - while a range of his finest Ferrari images are there too. Worth a look even if it's only from passing interest without any intention of bidding.

I particularly like the Monza shot of Harry Schell in the NART Ferrari 375 running in formation with Moss in the magnificently OTT Maserati Eldorado Special - Ferrari v. Maserati in an unusual category for them both.

I think the Lotus 23 might be Jim Charnock at the October 1965 BARC meet ( your father was busy winning in his Mk 19!).

As for Roger Lund's query - yes, I am pretty sure the Daimler SP250 is Dick Crosfield's car.

RL

Whilst that may have been true on occasion, I remember both Crosfield and Cross racing SP250s in the same race - Crosfield developed his to quite a high state of tune which it still was in when Roger Connel or John McClay had it (can't remember which it was - might have been both in turn). Lord Cross, as with the AC Cobra he had later, kept the car in roadgoing condition but could still give anyone a run for his money.

Cue another 'documented from day 1, including purchase paperwork' Lotus 23? I wonder where this one fits into the Normand story?

Is it a 'known car' in Historics? Perhaps someone should alert the owner - If I had the car I'd want this stuff, not only for the history of the car, but also to stop the inevitable clone.

I thought I'd plug my ebay antics here as well, I hope the moderators will allow me to!

I have a number of lots of photo slides from the German Formula 1 GP in 1977 up for auction at the moment. It's hard for me to part with some of this stuff, but I just want to make some space and concentrate on subjects (50s, early 60s and the 80s) that I find a bit more interesting.

I have split into a few lots, there's Niki Lauda, Jody Scheckter, shots of the Tyrrell six-wheeler, Fittipaldi, Brabhams, Lotus:

http://www.ebay.co.u...a-/150790178373
http://www.ebay.co.u...a-/150790186378
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/150790182799

I also have stuff on formula super v, inteserie sports cars, group 5 at Hockenheim and Formula One at Long Beach in 1980. Also there is a photoalbum on 60s motorcycle racing at the Nürburgring and world championship motorbikes from the 1970s. They might not be listed for the moment please ask if you're interested!

Also some model cars and a rare kit of the Arrows A2 in scale 1/24 (I just don't get around to building it!!).

I will probably list some more in the coming days that might be of interest to anyone concerned.
