Yes indeed - the desperate braking efforts do seem to have got him somewhere and, now that I see the full sequence, I can recall the race. Your last two shots show us going into Energol on the final two laps after Iain had very cleverly managed to have me boxed in behind some lapped traffic on the approach to the dogleg giving him the opportunity to dive past on the second last lap and take the lead I had held all the way until then. As these shots also show we had both by then managed to pull away from the pair of Midgets and the rest. This race and Iain's well judged pass was the subject of several posts some time back on the Marque Sports thread in which Iain confessed about his gamesmanship with the back markers which created the opening for him. Great photos and thanks for posting them as they bring back some very pleasant memories.
I've just been looking at that thread & there's a photo (Dec 19 2009) which must have been taken about three seconds after my second last shot.
(I could have used "penultimate", but that's a bit too "Murray Walker" for me.)
Reading through the MS thread, it appears that CAMS couldn't stand the minor rule bending that brought about the success of your class, & decided to change it.
Clubman racing was at its best with the invitation 1500cc cars, & was left alone.
For several years, Sports cars produced seriously good races which even caught the attention of the tin-top junkies,
proving that all that was wanted was a good close race.
In later years, the politics were obviously different when Nissan got Godzilla under the radar, & we saw a Sports car win the Touring Car Championship.
Two days ago, these photos were just forgotten negatives.
I calculated today that I have around 1500 yet to scan!!!
