Rob, thank you for posting those for me, I think the first, of the Lola can-am requires no comment ! !, as for the second, of the Millen team in victory, I count eight on board, is there a record, for the amount of hangers on ?

 

Group7 in canada

 Yes the record is ---11 plus the driver---- way back a few years ago sitting a Endurance sports car a Porsche i think. :wave:

As discussed earlier in this thread, and before that, here:

Although the photo in the opening post is no longer visible, this is definitely the photo under discussion. It's Tony Marsh in his hillclimb car being filmed for a commercial.

Might the driver in post #32 be Jim Hall?

He and Ireland were teammates in the BRP effort in '63.

 

Just askin.

It's definitely not Jim Hall. The photo was taken at Clermont-Ferrand in 1965, and DSJ in his report in Motor Sport clearly identified the drivers as Bonnier, Ireland and Ginther (see post 6 in this thread for the quote from his report).

Well, in truth Jacques was just sampling Matra V12 power in trying to make a decision about next year. And isn't it neat how, when you're standing behind the car and looking down on the rear wing, it reads "don don don don..." - I'm sure Don Nichols was very happy with Universal Oil Products... :D

I have a question. In this picture you can see Renzo or the guy behind him leaning with the foot on the exhausts. I've seen pictures of guys sitting there or somewhere there on or close to the engine. But would that not be damn hot? Added to the fact that most F1 cars and other open wheel-cars (like this F3) did not have engine-covers...

I didn't know that Renzo Zorzi was a contortionist, but to me the REAL HERO in this pic is the guy with the glasses, resting his feet in the hot air from the radiator!!!! Man, those feet must've smelt...


Seriously, of course it's hot after a race, but it cools down pretty quickly, too. This is after the prize giving, presumably upon returning to the F3 paddock, so several minutes after the race. Bearable.

I've come across a great many people for whom that is an unimaginable concept. As a long time SCCA Tech Inspector I was chastised many a time for attempting to give a car a "helping hand" on the rear wing only to almost be yelled at to not touch the wing.

Somewhat later methinks, without wading through books and mags, note the camera man's helmet and garb, not the 1950s surely.

My first thought wasthe lap of Modena Auitodrome that featured in the BP film "Tribute to Fangio" which was filmed shortly after his retirement, ie circa 1959.  But the Armco barrier does suggest somewhat later.

So who are the other two passengers?  One seems to have goggles so is perhaps the riding mechanic. If so, why isn't he doing the throttle work and how did this Ramponi guy get involved?  And who is the fourth guy at the back?

Judging from the armco and stands etc this must be from the shooting of the Hugh Hudson film Fangio: una vita a 300 all'ora.

Sorry for the late reply, or my bad english, for that matter. Giulio Ramponi is the riding mechanic. According to this website, the other two are also Alfa mechanics who helped get the car running after it stopped just a few hundred meters before the end. Despite this, Ascari was the first to cross the finish line (with all three mechanics on board), but the judges told him that they wouldn't accept that, so he backtracked to where the car stopped and crossed the finish line again but, as team-mate Ugo Sivocci caught up to him, he had to settle for a second place.

Thanks.  I am a little unsure whether Ramponi is in fact the one at the front on the front suspension. He is wearing a cap, but has no goggles, just as the man at the back of the car.  It seems more likely that Ramponi is the one sitting on the scuttle, as he has goggles and looks dirty like Ascari.  He is also possibly working the throttle (otherwise why would he be sitting there rather than in the cockpit?).

As per the later Alfa Romeo 179's also coincidentally driven by Patrick, the front wings of the Tyrrell 008 were forward swept, presumably for yaw stability.
