#3 the car looks like the  Cisitalia "upgrade" which appeared briefly as a works car during the 1948 season and then was bought by Swiss Claude Bernheim, which  would also quite fit to the colour scheme. So my guess would be a hill climb in the (at least partly) French-speaking part of Switzerland, maybe Les Rangiers, La Sonnaz, Vue des Alpes, Le Sierre, Ollon-Villars...

#18, #19, #20 all from the GP des Nations, Geneva in 1950

 

#18 - the Formula 2 race with No. 18 Trintignant / Gordini in front of No. 34 Macklin / HWM with seemingly a Cisitalia ("Robert" Klempener) far behind? The circuit consisted mainly on two lanes of road in opposite direction, separated by just a row of straw bales, as you can see in the foreground...

 

And #19 and #20 show the two class winners in the supporting sports car race: Class up to 1500cc:  No. 6 Franz Hammernick / BMW-(Veritas) - No. 36 class over 1500cc: Willy Daetwyler, Alfa Romeo 4,5 litre.

#4 is obviously the Freiburg Schauinsland hillclimb (note the wirting "ADAC Bergrekord" on the building at the back). Further it must be after 1956, as the Porsche already carries one of the new license plates that had been introduced during that year. So the car in front would be verey likely of the Formula Junior category that blossomed up at the change of decade. A glance at https://www.formel3guide.com delivers two possible candidates, Herbert Russell on a "Gazelle Hansa" for 1960 and Philipp Meub / DKW Spezial for 1961. Further googling on http://www.pro-steil...rennen_1960.php gives a good collection of FJ cars at the 1960 Eifelrennen, and indeed our candidate does look very much like Russel´s "Gazelle", with the word "Hansa" pointing towards an engine from the Borgward/Hansa/Goliath group. 

 

Thank you very much for all the pictures. This is really fun like in the old 8w days!

 

Merry Christmas to all!

Seconded, although I did think that #2 was Donnington.

Agree on no 4 being the Freiburg hillclimb, and it has to be 1960 or later, see the nose of a Lotus 18 poking out behind the Porsche. The car in front seems to have VW-based front and rear suspension, but the huge front rad points to a water-cooled engine. Formula 3 came in for the 1964 season, Formula junior preceding that but that formula allowed for 1100cc engines only, and surely the Borgward t/c engine was 1500cc?

 

Interesting stuff. Season's Greetings from a  snowless Halden, Norway

Mix of dead easy and really rather difficult...  No 24 is indeed Eoin Young's Motormedia VW shop at a Brooklands Reunion meeting, possibly 1987?  That's our friend Maurice Hamilton - great fella - attending, in the natty headgear, with DSJ conducting an inspection.

 

I'm surprised nobody has so far tackled the wheels, No 31...nor, indeed, that privately built racing car, No 29...
