    Absolutely beautiful shot here of the Tyrrell crew working on their cars. Even though there is a temporary fence to keep the race fans at bay, by todays standards they are still very close, and get to see everything that is going on. And its grass-roots stuff by todays standards. Note the make-shift seat the nearest crew member is using. Just fantastic!

    Ronnie Peterson waited to the very end of the practice session before going out and doing 3 flying laps.
    Each time he came through the Woodcote Corner just before the pits the tail was way out and he was
    right on the limit. It was great to watch and it got him pole position by .2 sec over Hulme and Revson.
    This photo shows him on the way out to begin his last minute attempt at pole position.
    Friday 13th July 1973.

    Jody's car was chassis # M 23 / 3. It was only driven by Jody Scheckter in the 1973 French GP and the 1973 British GP. ( Crashed on lap 2 )
    It never raced again.
    I believe it has been restored but I am not sure where it is today.
    Does anyone know where and how it is at this time ?

    How times have changed ! I started talking to this mechanic (I think it was Bob Dance) He said they may need more mechanics at Lotus. I wrote to them and a month later I drove up to Hethel and was interviewed by Peter Warr and after lunch he showed me around the Lotus race shop. Ronnie Peterson came by for a fitting into his Formula 2 car.
    Starting pay was forty pounds a week and all travel expenses covered ! The guys told me that Norwich is one of the coldest places in England in the winter and most of the pay would go to heating the flat !
    I was in awe knowing how Peter had been manager to Jim Clark, Graham Hill etc.but was amazed at how ancient most of the buildings and work conditions were. I had it better in Morrinsville !
    Well, I did not get the position but it certainly was an experience I would not forget.

    Practice Day. Silverstone. 1973 British Grand Prix.
    This shows Jo Ramirez, the Tyrrell crew chief, standing on the railing, waiting for Francois Cevert to come through. Cevert's fastest lap that day was 1 min 17.3 seconds as is shown on the pit board by Jo's feet.

    Also note Jackie Stewart surrounded by many people.

    In contrast Denny Hulme sits alone in his McLaren M 23 as he preferred and if anyone that he did not approve of,interrupted, they would soon find out why his nickname was " The Bear" !

    You know, the striking thing to me is the number of people in the pit lane, with no speed limits.
