#2: looks like Nurburgring to me. German GP 1961.

#10: lack of wings would indicate Monza. At a guess, without time to research the idea, could it be Graham in Jochen's car in practice in 1969?

6 is NGH at Monaco in '71 or '72.

No rain, must be '71.

Agreed; it looks to me like the left-hander before Adenau Bridge.

Certainly is; 1973 F Atlanatic I reckon.

#4 Looks to be a Leda, with Trevor Taylor at the wheel?

#5 Is that Howden Ganley in the McLaren leading Chris Amon in the Lotus 70?

I agree with Vitesse that #2 looks like the Nurburgring - is it the left hander before Adenau bridge, on the way to ex-Muhle?

#5 features Chris Amon in the Lotus 70.

#8 I agree with Gregor...definitely Colin Vandervell in an Atlantic (?) March

1) I don't think it's Piper
5) It won't be Ganley, but I can't think who...

No.7 Not sure about the Lolas, but on the left is a Surtees (TS15?) and, to the right, Bill McGovern's championship winning Imp.

Number 4 is surely Trevor Taylor and I think it's the 1969 F5000 race at Koksijde Air base (Belgian coast).

No 4 is definately Trevor Taylor in the Surtees TS5 F5000.

No 5 and the McLaren on the left doesn't look like it is being driven by Brian Redman as the crash helmet looks wrong.

No 7 definately Two Lolas - F2/FAt/FSvee - probably the early T240 and T242 prototypes

No 8 is Colin Vandervell in the FAtlantic March

Still on No.5
There were six M10 McLarens in the Australian Tasman rounds in 1971, and by a process of elimination this must be Keith Holland (who hadn't done the NZ races, which is why I didn't immediately recognise the car)

Looks a bit like him. If the Zeltweg 1959 ID is correct then presumably it's the Flugplatzrennen on Aug 23rd, where Pipes came second.

And as the only front-engined single-seaters were Lotuses, that would make the car either Piper's 16 or Peter Monteverdi's 12.

Picture 10 is practise for the 1968 Race of Champions at Brands; the spoiler wasn't used in the race.
