A few of my photographs from Saturday at the excellent Brands Hatch Superprix. I'm always intimidated by Simon Arron's captions but here goes...

Posted Image
Yvan Mahe in the BRM looked and sounded amazing blasting out of Stirlings.

Posted Image
The prettiest car at the race meeting, Lotus 41 driven by Gareth Williams

Posted Image
Historic Formula One pit garage including Hunt's Dutch winner

Posted Image
Chevron, the staple of the Guards Trophy

Posted Image
Historic Formula 2 battle

Posted Image
Superb Orwell Supersports Cup lead tussle finally settled by Piper's falling oil pressure.

Posted Image
Equally good lead battle in the Derek Bell Trophy - Richard Piper said all he could see in his mirrors was orange.

Posted Image

Posted Image
Sean Walker in his Lotus 26R and Roger Bevan in his Lotus 69 - you can tell Lotus is my car of choice.

The Superprix is one of the seasons' best meetings, strange that hardly anyone comes along (it doesn't usually clash with the FOS).

Lovely photos, chaps. Looks like the weather held out. Like you, David, I have always thought that the Lotus 41 was a very pretty racer - such a neat and tidy car. I remember especially hillclimber Geoff Rollason's version, and Jackie Oliver's FVA-engined Lotus Components F2 incarnation.

Just to indulge ourselves then Alan, two more photographs of the 41 in the pits yesterday.

While I'm on, looking at your FoS photographs from 12 years ago makes you realise how quickly nostalgia kicks in - it was a far better event than the trade show/carnival it has become.

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.

Posted Image
Watts the story, mourning glory: Matthew's March 772 was beaten by Andy Meyrick's 782 in the Historic F2 race.

Posted Image
[Robert] Barrie sheen: habitually lurching 911 heads a Safety Car-jumbled Guards Trophy phalanx...

Posted Image

Posted Image
...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.

Posted Image
Marshal arts: Andy Somerville receives due notice that something has just happened behind the photographer's right shoulder...

Posted Image
...photographer tunes in slightly late as Andrew Hill contemplates his freshly spun B8.

Posted Image
The apotheosis of a neat, perfectly proportioned sports car...

Posted Image
...but is this where Spen King drew some of his inspiration for the original Range Rover?

Posted Image

Posted Image
Calm down, Mallory Dan: the Ralt RT1s of Philip Harper and Hans Peter.

Posted Image
Brown's lane: David of that ilk and his Brabham BT30.

Posted Image
Soft machine: Graham Oakins's Alfa Giulia Sprint.

Posted Image
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).

Simon, Alan, and David - thank you all for taking the time to post your great shots for we here at TNF to enjoy.

Alan, I especially enjoyed your Goodwood wayback machine photos. I know Bill Spoerle and Walter Goodwin and it is neat to relive those moments. As big as Walter is, I don't know how he crams himself into that Lotus 38!

Thanks again,
Brian

We must have been within yards of each other. I planned to be there today but the heat at the track got to me, a shame as the Formula Juniors and the Saloons were there today.

While you have concentrated on the tiddlers in your last post here are a few more of mine of the heavier metal.

Norman was no mean peddler either; I saw him qualify it 13th (out of 30 entrants) on the grid in the European F2 round at Donington in 1977 with the likes of De Angelis & Ghinzhani in his wake. Don't know where he finished tho'.

Paul Allen's B34 - the future wouldn't be orange for long. A few laps later he crashed quite heavily at Surtees and prompted a red flag.

Tobacco road - Robert Shaw (B42) negotiates Stirlings.

Dingle Dell boy - Terry Fisher (B40).

And one for all lovers of the Palliser WDB4 - Greg Thornton prepares to be swamped by Richard Evans's B40.

I know Phil, I had noticed, ain't it great. There's something not quite right about the Dicksons livery tho', I can't put my finger on it yet. And did you notice the Evans B40 has a B42 nose? And do you recall that it was B Cal Helicopters that backed the car, rather than B Cal Airways...

In a parallel universe this would be Richard Morgan (B29) absorbing pressure from Howdy Holmes (March 78B), but nowadays that translates to Chris Sharples v Daryl Taylor.

Mark Dwyer (March 782).

And finally, Richard Evans (Chevron B40) without any TCR jammer Pallisers in view.

Terrific shot of Chris Williams, ASDC. Don't think I've ever seen the Napier Bentley attempt to set fire to a cricket pavilion before. Here, meanwhile, are a few things I noticed during the weekend's course...

Posted Image
Oodles of charisma fails to lure punters to the latest round of the Classic Endurance Racing series at the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve.

Posted Image
Senhor citizen: Carlos Barbot and his Lola T280.

Posted Image
Straining Datsun cogs: Jean-François Favre's pretty 240Z qualified last, almost half a minute shy of the class pace.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image
Sky-blue thinking: from the top, Marc Devis (Chevron B36), Olivier Cazalières (Lola T298), the Heiko Ostmann/Lucas Luhr De Tomaso Mangusta, Jean-Marc Merlin (Porsche 935) and Stéphane Sabates ('73 Chevrolet Corvette).

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image
United and ignited: the full complement of BMW M1s driven, from the top, by Sean/Michael McInerney, Fernando Spirito Santo/Ricardo Bravo (with Christian Traber following) and Gilles Gibier.

Posted Image
Frédéric da Rocha (Lola T298) does a passable impression of an M1.

Posted Image
Sinclair and Citroën have both made a C5, but Sauber got there first... Not sure which of the Brunns – Siegfried or Philipp – is at the wheel.

Posted Image
Chairman Portimão: Jean-Marc Luco's winning Porsche 936. In due course, I will doubtless feel the temptation to stick some of the weekend's more modern stuff on the F1 2009/nostalgia in the making thread...

Hi,

Can anyone inform if the Ferrari 712 CanAm (1971) is or was owned by a Brazilian ?

Is Abba Kogan Brazilian ?

I saw some photos of this Ferrari where it carries a sticker which says "Fica frio" (Keep cool) and another for "Escuderia Lagartixa (Escuderia "Lizard").

Best regards.

Yes indeed, Roger, it is Donald Day's car, but it's R14B - and which he still drives in sprints and hillclimbs.

Thanks so much, Alan - yes, enough Ralt RT4's and the like to keep me happy too! I grew up watching these cars as 'the main game' and they still seem to me to be what a single seater should look like! :)

Once I've finished editing and uploading the whole batch in the next few days, I will set about adding some descriptions and tags. There are already quite a few of the latter.

Beyond this, if at any time you would like to know more about any of the pics, please feel free to email me (at the address noted on each one) and include either a link to the image itself or the filename (to be found at top left) or both and it will be a pleasure to tell you more.

All the best
Peter

This may help! Two links to websites, as follows:

- the VHRR (Victorian Historic Racing Register) who manage, amongst other events, the annual Phillip Island Classic, the annual Sandown event and the annual historic car activities at the Grand Prix : http://www.vhrr.com/

- the HSRCA (Historic Sports and Racing Car Association of NSW), who manage, amongst other events, the Tasman Revival meeting at Eastern Creek : http://www.hsrca.org.au/

The content and links within these sites will provide you with plenty of information about the historic scene in Australia.

Happy reading!

Hello Everyone,

I've been stuck to this wonderful forum for a few years now and I thought that it was high time I posted something! Anyway, below are a few snapshots I took at the 2009 Historic Sandown down here in sunny Melbourne.... I do have many more slides of racing at Calder, Sandown and Winton during the period 1981 to 1986 but I'll have to get around to scanning them. :well:

Welcome aboard! :wave:

Those 1981 to 1986 pics would, I'm sure, be very well received here. So please start scanning!

ciao

Thanks for the welcome Peter. I will try to scan the slides but I think it'll take me a few months as there are hundreds.:eek: The majority were taken at Calder Raceway and include open events like the Grand Prix's (81 to 84), Touring Cars, Sports Sedans, Formula Pacific, Formula 2, Formula Ford plus club meetings and test sessions. We lived approx 15 minutes drive away then so it was easy to get out there and take a few pics.

I still haven't decided whether to load them up to Flickr and have a link or have them visible on TNF (only the better ones of course!). Any feedback on this would be welcome. Well, I better get scanning! :wave:

Cheers

Paul
