    No apologies as this is a mix of pics, but a trip to the speedway to support number 1 grandson who has given up motocross to be a sidecar swinger.

    Had to wait for ages to see him run - then here they are in fourth place on the first lap just as something broke and rendered them clutchless... We missed their first race (they finished second) as they brought forward the event start time due to the suspected weather deterioration. May have to go to Western Springs Saturday, as the sidecars have a race or two there.

    Back to Dad's pics - pre and postwar. Once again, scanned from prints rather than negatives or plates.

    All very well wearing a suit, collar and tie Freddie, but looks as though it needed a clean by the end of the day...

    This is Leo Kinnunen's mighty 917/10, which won the European Interseries. Although never gaining the status of the Can-Am, the Interseries still attracted some impressive machinery. Note also the Shadow MkIII Can-Am car in the background. Thanks for the image Ray.

    Any idea where the last two were taken? They look like Climax V8's.

    Silverstone International Trophy meeting May 5th 1963.
    No shows were the Sirroccos and the BRM's didn't do too well. Hill and Ginther retired and Bandini in the 1962 Centro-Sud BRM failed to qualify. I was there, but no camera... Probably the last motorsport photographs dad took other than one Shelsey Hillclimb and a Curborough Sprint.

    Yup. At the Goodwood Revival 2009, the restored car had Denis spelt "Dennis" so not sure if that was so in period. My pic isn't sharp enough to see properly!

    I think this same Gethin McLaren is now in NZ too - also in Sid Taylor's colours of course.

    Might be a victory or demo lap, looks like car has a passenger as well, or is the non- helmeted person driving?

    According to John Starkey "LOLA T70" book it was Sid Taylor at the wheel year 1966, Victory Lap. Denny that year had many victories in SL71/31 that year. The historic pictures show spelling as Dennis Hulme.

    We didn't stay after Grandson's race so no idea what happened afterwards!

    The Lola pic was the victory lap! Mind you, elf and safety probably would not approve of how close we were to the track in those days.

    I do have a pic from the same day showing the Lola behind another Lola and in a spin at the same hairpin... Just checked my photo/programme list and yes, it was Sid driving, but thought the helmet looked like Hulme's, so might have to correct that one! Always appreciate corrections so thanks for that.

    Denny drove the race, but let Sid drive the victory lap. He did this quite a bit that season including one of Surtees driving the victory lap. Your Dad's photos are magic Ray.

    Thanks Spgeti. I'm sure he'd be thrilled to bits knowing that others could share the images. He was a very modest man and after the war, worked for a large company who were schools, industrial and aerial photographers, as Works Manager, right up until his retirement. He was fantastic on the production side with extremely high standards and had a great loyal workforce. He would have been a real whizz with Photoshop!

    There are a few more Donington ones I haven't yet scanned or posted, but some need a bit of work.

    Excellent Nigel - and maybe we need the comment that all these pics were from just one race group!

    * Note: Refers to Nigel's pics that have now been moved to the ERC Series thread.

    It just shows you the advances in cameras and photography over the last 80 or so years, when you compare Nigel's fantastic shots with those taken in the late 1930's, often on an old plate camera, where you'd be lucky to be able to carry more than about 12 plates a day, without going back to the darkroom to reload!

    If you'd told a prewar photographer, that one day, you'd have a camera producing great colour shots, with a zoom lens that focused automatically - and you'd be able to store thousands of images on something about the size of five postage stamps stuck together, you would have been classed as totally bonkers. If you'd also said that you'd be able to manipulate the images in a thousand different ways whilst sitting on a bus or train and send them across the world in seconds, or send colour movies with stereo sound to hundreds of people, they would probably have locked you up.

    We may not care too much for the modern cars, but we sure do appreciate the technology!

    In date order - possibly:

    Bira chases Mays when there were trees all around the Donington track, not to mention the squared kerb. Pretty - but dangerous.

    Muller, Auto-Union. Brave men with over 500bhp on skinny tyres, no seat belts, helmet etc., and a narrow tree lined track. Image partially cleaned up as it wasn't the best.
