I wasn't previously aware of captions being used as an intimidatory weapon, David... Thee and me can't have been too far apart, looking at some of the snaps. I couldn't make it today, but here are a few more that I was too tired to post/identify yesterday evening.
Watts the story, mourning glory: Matthew's March 772 was beaten by Andy Meyrick's 782 in the Historic F2 race.
[Robert] Barrie sheen: habitually lurching 911 heads a Safety Car-jumbled Guards Trophy phalanx...
...the Safety Car having been scrambled because of this, the other side of the E-type/Marcos skirmish in my previous post. The 1800GTs of Ian Cox (left, top) and Peter Thompson both ended up in the gravel - and Cox's car wasn't especially raceable thereafter.
Marshal arts: Andy Somerville receives due notice that something has just happened behind the photographer's right shoulder...
...photographer tunes in slightly late as Andrew Hill contemplates his freshly spun B8.
The apotheosis of a neat, perfectly proportioned sports car...
...but is this where Spen King drew some of his inspiration for the original Range Rover?
Calm down, Mallory Dan: the Ralt RT1s of Philip Harper and Hans Peter.
Brown's lane: David of that ilk and his Brabham BT30.
Soft machine: Graham Oakins's Alfa Giulia Sprint.
Had this been pointing the wrong way, I could have written something about Saints and spinners. But it isn't, so I can't: Steven Bee's Volvo 1800S.
That's probably quite enough from me, so I'll sign off with the thought that the Brands Hatch Grand Prix loop's relative absence of debris fencing complements older cars to perfection. Here's a selection featuring Nigel Webb's XK120 (twice, in fact), Jeremy Wheatley (Surtees TS15), Andrew Jackson (Alfa Giulietta), Martin Stretton (March 712M), Richard Owen (TR2), Barry Ashdown (Elan), Dave Kirby (TR6) and Jim Gathercole (Elan +2).
