Question, what is Phil Hill? whispering to Dan?
Another point of interest - isn't George Wicken a long way up the grid at the Brands Grand Prix circuit opening race in 1960? I was just 100 metres along from the photographer on the approach to Paddock.

It just dawned on me that EVERY driver is wearing the same light blue overalls and are standing/sitting in front of a Dunlop van.
A 'when?' would be interesting - we have Baghetti and Anderson in there so I guess at 1964.

Next row #14 Salvadori - Cooper, Surtees - Lotus and #6 Brooks - Cooper.
Then, #16 Wicken - Cooper, Gurney - Cooper (wearing white stripe on helmet) and #12 Henry Taylor - Cooper. Just visible on Taylor's right is McLaren - Cooper.
Behind them are #18 Bianchi - Cooper, #42 Phil Hill - Ferrari, and you can also see #40 Ginther - Ferrari, far right the nose of Bruce Halford's Cooper (Yeoman Credit) and finally #38 which is David Piper's Lotus 16.

Caption, I suppose, would be 'WHOOPS'.

My sympathies are with you, Cargo (and others)

Well said Rob. I'm pleased someone else knows there can be a problem. If you're on slow dialup (and I am) It's VERY difficult to stay interested in a thread when you end up staring at a blank screen for fifteen minutes - and all you can see is 2" of blue sky at the top of some 5000x5000 pixel scan that some thoughtless %&6%$ has posted.
I've posted some images myself on this thread, but because of HUGE pictures posted in adjacent posts, I cannot even see MY OWN postings! I just ain't got the patience to stare at nothing for 30 minutes..... I know it's difficult to be critical of people who mean well by wanting to share their pics, but I really think the mods should stomp on this pretty hard. 500x500 pixels should be the maximum. If you want to post bigger, then make sure you go the thumbnail route.
Sorry all, that this is a bit of a rant, but I'm really ticked off with not being able to view my own stuff (within a reasonable time). Not everyone is on broadband.
Before I went broadband, I used to regularly have to wait 20min for a series of images to load. Even now huge photos can taker several seconds

If it helps...

I've looked at this thread on two different machines today, and in both Barry Boor's and Twinny's posts, all I get are those annoying little boxes with Xs in the middle. I can see all the other shots posted so far.
At home on my Mac I couldn't see Barry's but had no trouble with Twinny's
Here at work they are both OK
(But I don't think I've had any trouble with Barry's in the past)

I think the idea of this thread is for people to post photos they've taken themselves
Posted 07 December 2004 - 08:59
Maybe Peter Jopp?

Amon and Mo Nunn at Brands Hatch 1976
(And apologies to anyone hoping for 100 photos in one go)

I think he was clean-shaven when he won at Silverstone
But it was back in place fairly soon after Long Beach

The car in Barry's picture however is a newer one built by Harry Peirce, and did not appear until, I think, 1957. The sliding-pillar front suspension is from a Lancia.

I hope you can see them now - see above
Still can't see them - though I can see Twinny's Shopped versions - and the selection you posted ten minutes ago

I'd swear it's former New Zealand champion Angus Hyslop

I've got some F2 photos I took at Interlagos in 1972 when I was 13 years old. My dad knew somebody from CBA and we manage to watch the race from the pit area. And I also have some F1 shots I took at Silverstone (British GP) in 1983 when I was living in England. But I don't know how to post them. Can I e-mail them to one of you and you post them for me ?

Brazilian driver Pedro Victor Delamare replacing Clay Regazzoni ( Regga was racing in Argentina that sunday)

Spot on Dan. IIRC, David McLaughlin had a late-season 811 in 821 Rothmans colours. Or was it a 821 in Guinness livery? It was a long time ago...

Chaps, I think Terry Sayles owned a Leyton House 90B as well as the TS20, so I reckon it was probably this car hired out. As for the Marches, visually there was little difference between the later, lightened and 'Coppuck-ised' 811s and the 821s. This car could therefore have been the 811 Rob mentions, made to look like the Rothmans 821s.

Let me just go and rattle a techie's cage...

I haven't seen Barnard's name connected to it anywhere.
Posted 20 September 2005 - 11:15
According to Doug Nye's 1966-85 book, Barnard helped the team over the 79-80 winter and was designing a second Rebaque for them. So maybe he came to it later. 8W could be wrong. After all, I frequently am!
So far I can only find one contemporary mention of the designer: GPI saying Ferris.
Posted 20 September 2005 - 11:24
Still no Barnard. Maybe this has to be filed with those stories that he designed the Lotus 79?

The #30 wasn't on the entry list but was identified earlier by dwall as the "Gelo Racing Team Porsche 917 Spyder driven by Franz Pesch".
Posted 21 October 2005 - 14:37
Nice picture of the Noel Le Tissier Chevron. Is that definitely the B30? Could it be the B32?
Posted 21 October 2005 - 15:59
Any Lime Rock or Thompson Formula A? Either L&M or Nationals? It's really, really hard to find pictures from those early years (1968-72) of US Formula A/Formula 5000.

I have never worked for a team - my photography has always been for my own pleasure. I am originaly from Connecticut in the Northeast US. As a teeneager I ocassionaly would carry an Kodak Instamatic carmera (the 2 Watkins Glen paddock photos were taken with one). I think the first race I ever took photos of was the '67 Sebring - Unfortuntly those photos were lost in a family move many years ago. I do have some slides from an old SCCA race in '66 or '67 at Thompson, CT. They're terrible.
