I think the second photo (and your Ferrari pic in the 'track' thread) is from the 1968 Gold Cup at Oulton.

Quite emotional since, outside of the casual "ambiance" that it depicts, this is probably one of the very last photos of Seppi....


Thanks for the link Philippe
I did post it to this thread (05-Nov-04 post#33), but a smaller version. It's still there ;)

Mike Hailwood in there as well.. I agree Barry, 1964 British GP at Brands.

Alan Rees at the rear wing of the Arrows looks as happy as he does in my photo :) Probably tired of showing 2 enthusiastic schoolboys around the pits when the A2 was giving him even more of a headache than we did!

I haven't got the current copy of MotorSport in front of me, but IIRC JB mentions that he was briefly working with Rebaque after Chaparral, before he went on to the restructured McLaren team.

I saw a "pit lane test" of that trolley somewhere just recently.

At various times, many of us have posted images on threads. It occurred to me last night, as I came across an old photo album of mine that it might be a nice idea to have an on-going thread onto which those of us who are fortunate enough to be able to scan and post images, could do so, for the dilectation of others.

Do I have any support on this one.....?

Oh yes! I am thinking of racing oriented images, by the way!

Alright, seeing that I suggested it in the first place, I'll set the ball rolling with a few. I should add, in my own defence, that these were taken a LONG time ago, with a camera that was given away free with Corn Flakes! :)

All these pictures were taken at Brands Hatch

Posted Image
I presume that is Ron Tauranac behind Ickx. Clearly this must be 1967 - Jacky's one year with Jack's team.

Posted Image
From a BOAC 500, or whatever that was called. 1970, I think.

Posted Image
Taken during practice for the 1970 British Grand Prix.

Posted Image
A particular satisfying photo for me because 1. I got into the pit lane; 2. It was the very first appearance of an F1 Surtees (TS.7) and 3. All 3 designers are in the picture - one in the car and two at the back right - Shahab Ahmed (white jumper) and Peter Connew (orange jumper).

I hope everyone accepts that the motives for posting these pictures are not self-congratulatory, but rather are a genuine wish to share them with other interested parties.

Here is Graham Hill saying 'Goodbye', at Silverstone in 1975. The last time I, amongst many, ever saw him.

This is his son, pictured in the Silverstone paddock at an International Trophy F.3000 meeting.

After playing about with this 32 year-old photo, which was spoiled by light getting onto the film, this is the first time it has EVER been viewable. The young man in the March is pictured in the Nurburgring paddock in 1972.

Ah, Staff, if only...... but then, I doubt you will see many race mechanics toting cameras around the paddock, even today. Much too busy - far too many things to do.

Yes, you are all quite right. I forgot that some of the pictures went back into the 1960's.

Chris looks tired - he had just finished the Austrian Grand Prix and it was HOT - even outside the cars.

I thought the pale yellow Brabham Climax might provoke the odd question.

It is quite an unusual one. IIRC the car was owned by a George Pitt and was to have been driven in the 1969 Race of Champions by none other than Roy Pike.

Darren's excellent site reminds me that the car seemed to achieve no practice time at all, and didn't start the race.

I guess the removed bodywork gives us a clue that the problem was mechanical...

I think you will find that is the oil tank. Oil tanks hanging out the back of cars were quite popular in the early 1970s! :blush:

....or did you mean the little white catch tank? It's job was to collect the oil that would otherwise have dribbled (or in some cases gushed) out of the main tank breather.

dwall - that Vanwall, where when?

Dan, the Tui was taken in 1970, I think, and it was definitely an F.3 car. I never saw any F.2 racing at Brands during that period.

As for the Brabham, I assume a 2.7 litre Climax 4 cylinder engine (maybe 2.5) and I have tried to find the pedigree of this one but without success as a 23B is not listed as an F.1 car at all.

Is this worth a thread of its own?

So he did! I didn't realise they ran the Vanwall in that configuration at all in 1960.

Apologies, dwall.

David - 1959, don't think so.

It is a 1962 Formula Junior car called a LIGHTNING.

The current owner, at the time of that meeting, was Bob Diggory. I assumed that he would be related to Jim Diggory who built cars called Gwyniads, in Wales. I guess this may also have been one of his creations.

Then again.... :(

Is the only difference in this Ferrari between the Grand Prix and the International Trophy the fact that the number 10 was in a white roundel in May?

Or are there other subtle things that we plebs don't spot?
