Personal photos from the paddock
Posted 25 January 2006 - 07:22
I think the second photo (and your Ferrari pic in the 'track' thread) is from the 1968 Gold Cup at Oulton.
Stewart in the MS10 #5, Derek Bell in #17 Ferrari.

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 ;)

A 'when?' would be interesting - we have Baghetti and Anderson in there so I guess at 1964.
Mike Hailwood in there as well.. I agree Barry, 1964 British GP at Brands.

Check out the 'ELF' logo on the rear wing.

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!

It that Don Nichols standing to Riccardo's right and does anyone know who that rather forlorn looking figure sitting in the garage is?

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.
Originally posted by Twin Window
The Chaparral he designed was a 1980 chassis. So, if he were a freelance in 1979, he could have been working for Rebaque too I suppose. And Zolder would have been an early-season race; May, perhaps?

I saw a "pit lane test" of that trolley somewhere just recently.
Now where was it?
Posted 02 November 2001 - 20:25
Do I have any support on this one.....?
Oh yes! I am thinking of racing oriented images, by the way!
Posted 03 November 2001 - 09:14
All these pictures were taken at Brands Hatch
I presume that is Ron Tauranac behind Ickx. Clearly this must be 1967 - Jacky's one year with Jack's team.
From a BOAC 500, or whatever that was called. 1970, I think.
Taken during practice for the 1970 British Grand Prix.
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.

I will have to edit the links to my pictures so that they re-appear. I have a few more I can add later, I suppose.
Posted 05 November 2004 - 19:16
Well, it was 2001!!!

This above has probably been shown on the Amon thread but a long while ago.
This one is around somewhere too, but it's a personal favourite of mine.

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.

1971 Racing Car Show at Ally Pally, sir?
It certainly is, sir!
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.
Posted 30 November 2004 - 23:33
These are all from 1970 or 1971 - some at Brands, some at Salivastone.
Sorry, I forgot, the Amon pic is from Austria 1972.
Posted 01 December 2004 - 19:00
Chris looks tired - he had just finished the Austrian Grand Prix and it was HOT - even outside the cars.
Posted 24 February 2005 - 22:46
sorry about the angle on the Hesketh pic. It's supposed to be viewed at 45 degrees! BTW, I have always thought that the smiling little chap in the white shirt was the famous mechanic 'ball of string'. Is it?
Posted 24 February 2005 - 23:02
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...

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?
Posted 25 February 2005 - 16:35
David - 1959, don't think so.
Posted 02 May 2005 - 08:39
I am interested to know in what class of racing this last car, a PIERCE M.G, would have raced, and when.
Posted 02 May 2005 - 10:51
Posted 02 May 2005 - 11:36
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.
Over to you, anoraks....
Posted 05 May 2005 - 08:38
Or are there other subtle things that we plebs don't spot?
Posted 07 October 2005 - 18:04
Posted 11 January 2006 - 23:03
All taken in the Brands paddock in, I think, 1972; but others will know better than I!
