Odd request – does anyone have dimensions of the pit stalls at Brands Hatch circa 1967? I’d like to create a diorama and any assistance would be helpful,

 

What would be helpful is the height of the pit counter, width of the pit stalls between walls and the height of the pit stall – from the top of the pit counter to the pit stall roof

 

Appreciate any assistance and thanks in advance

Bill, you never know, someone here might have a copy of the architect's plans!  If not, having had a look at various photos of pit-stops etc 1966-68, I'd estimate the pit counter at around 3'6", the overall height 7'6" - 8'0", and the width of each stall 7'0" - 7'6".  All very unscientific, based on pit stop pictures, heights of standing mechanics etc.

There's a GT40 behind the P68 in this photo which is helpful and seems to be nearly the same height as the pit counter so a good starting point I guess...

John - Thanks - That looks close to what I was guessing at - I used 12in as a baseline and most measurements would be some variation of that - I'll do a cardboard markup first to see how it looks with a model
