The Woodcote Cup

This photograph has alway been a favorite of ours. It shows the front row of the grid accelerating away at the start with four different cars, the starter standing on his podium just behind the 5 minute sign. This race was part of a meeting at Goodwood on September 25, 1954 and was a 10-lap […]

Fangio, Moss and B.R.M.

This bucolic setting was at the Dundrod circuit in Norther Ireland on Saturday, June 7, 1952. Cresting a rise and howling past some locals is Juan Manuel Fangio in one of two B.R.M. 15s entered in this non-championship formula libre race. With the change to Formula 2 for the World Championship, Fangio was without a […]

A Win for B.R.M.

This is the Monaco Grand Prix on May 22, 1966 as Jackie Stewart exits the famous tight downhill hairpin in his B.R.M. 61/2. This hairpin has had a series of different names down the years. It began as the Station Hairpin because the railroad station was situated on the outside of this turn, then when […]

The Beginning of Safety in Racing

Jackie Stewart in his BRM 61/2 in the pits during practice at Spa-Francorchamps for the Belgian Grand Prix which took place on June 13, 1966. Stewart would qualify on the outside of the front row, albeit 3.5 seconds behind poleman John Surtees in the Ferrari 312 with Jochen Rindt’s Cooper 81-Maserati between them but only […]

The Boys

In 1950 the International Daily Express Trophy non-championship race took place at Silverstone on August 26. Before the start a group got together for a photo on the grid in front of The Motor magazine bridge. On the left is Alberto Ascari with Yves Giraud-Cabantous who would drive a Talbot 26C peeking over his left […]

Give Me Goodwood on a Summer’s Day…

Indian Summer it was – as Americans would perhaps say – on September 27, 1952. But nevertheless, Roy Salvadori’s famous words ring true in this photograph as mechanics roll Louis Rosier’s Ferrari 375F1 back to its paddock stall after one of its races that day. In the typical format of those years at Goodwood, there […]

An Old BRM

Silverstone, July 20, 1963 – the British Grand Prix. Here is a wonderful close-in photo of Graham Hill pressing on with his BRM 57 which carries the number 1, indicative of the reigning World Champion. In those days photographers out on the circuit stood inches behind a low cement wall (seen in the lower left), […]

Ready, Set – GO!

They don’t let the crowd stand this close to the grid today. Everyone is perched right at the edge of the track, and just on the exit of the 140 mph Woodcote Corner. If two cars had come together leaving the grid… But this was at Silverstone for the start of the British Grand Prix on July 10, […]

The Maestro

Looking superbly relaxed, Juan Manuel Fangio sits on a rear tire of the 1.5-liter V16 BRM that he is about to drive. The race course is Goodwood, a former RAF airfield in the south of England, on September 26, 1953. The race will be the Woodcote Cup, a five lap Formula Libre affair. Most of […]

Smoking Tires

The starter up on his podium at the left has dropped the Union Jack and turns away as the two BRMs explode at the start of The Woodcote Cup Formula Libre race for Grand Prix cars at Goodwood on September 27, 1952. Nearest the camera is Reg Parnell’s BRM while across the grid is a sister car […]
