I didn't realise that Carlos Pace ever wore a blue and red helmet.

Point taken, Twinny, but there is no sign of an arrow design that I can see on that helmet.

Bit of a problem with the old images, Tony.

Don't you just LOVE that picture of the drivers?

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.

Surely that drivers photo must be an example of early advertising in racing?

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.

Co-incidence?

A 'when?' would be interesting - we have Baghetti and Anderson in there so I guess at 1964.

Front row, left to right, Hill - BRM, Ireland - Lotus, Brabham - Cooper and Clark - Lotus (Clark was on pole).

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.

Here are 2 pictures taken about 20 minutes apart on a cold, misty, damp day at Brands Hatch in 1969.

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. :down:

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.

My sympathies are with you, Cargo (and others)
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

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.

Barry Kalb

If it helps...
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)

He had it in NZ in January 1978
I think he was clean-shaven when he won at Silverstone
But it was back in place fairly soon after Long Beach

The Peirce-MG (note spelling) raced in '50s GP car events, with date of manufacture declared at, IIRC, 1951. A car of that name was among the most successful of several MG specials raced in South Africa in the mid '50s.
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'm reluctant to take issue with the man who took the photos, but have to say that although the grid shot is from the 1960 Silver City Trophy, but there's no way the drivers' shot could have been taken in 1960

Hi folks
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 ?

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.

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...

Geoff Ferris I think. The same man who did the PC7 semi-ground-effect and PC9 full ground-effect cars for Penske.

GPI says it was designed by Ferris and built at Penske workshops. Autocourse and Autosport don't mention its designer - implying it was a straight copy of a Lotus 79. But the suspension was closer to the Williams so somebody much have done some drawings.

I haven't seen Barnard's name connected to it anywhere.

What 8W actually says is "The HR100 was designed and built at Penske's British base in Poole - under the guidance of John Barnard, no less". That is not the same as saying that Barnard designed it.

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.

PS Autosport 30 Aug 1979 p2: "much of the design work has been done by Geoff Ferris". Motor Sport Oct 1979 p1466: "they commissioned the Penske organisation to scheme up a modified Lotus 79".

Still no Barnard. Maybe this has to be filed with those stories that he designed the Lotus 79?

Thanks Bill. So the #50 is Joe Kretschi's Formel-Rennsport-Club "Lola Spyder"

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".

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.

:wave: 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.
