    I probably took this photo at the 1969 BSCC Touring Car race held on the 16/08/1969. In which case #86 is the Alan Mann Racing Ford Escort Twin Cam of Australian Frank Gardner. He finished second to the Falcon Sprint of Britain Dennis Leech. There were two Camaro's in the race. Bill Shaw's 1968 Camaro retired due to an accident, whilst the Camaro of Mike Kearon finished 25th of 26 finishers. Unfortunately the results I have only have race numbers for 4 cars so I'm not sure which one this is, although I suspect it is the Bill Shaw car.

    In the Motoring News report of the race on that date, only one Camaro is mentioned. That was the car of Roy Pierpoint, which was running second between Leech and Gardner, when it crashed into a tree.

    Thanks Milan. I guess that a car finishing in 25 out of 26 places would probably not be of much interest to a journalist. The results I consulted showed two Camaros, but without their race numbers. The Bill Shaw car (driven by Roy Pierpoint) is just shown as retired due to an "accident". I think my photo shows the Pierpoint car before the accident, probably about to overtake Gardener on the fast run down to knicker brook.

    A friendly wave from Jochen Rindt after he finished second in the 1969 Oulton Park Gold Cup. The car is interesting, being a Lotus 63 Cosworth "experimental" with four wheel drive, a car described by Graham Hill as a "deathtrap". I guess Rindt was relieved to finish in one piece. The car was scrapped at the end of 1969.

    [QUOTE=Chaswin;75204]Well known Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato (Reg: SBH209D) in the late 1960's heading down the Avenue at Oulton Park.
    That would be Tom Leake.

    Ken is correct regarding the V16 BRM.
