A Ferrari at Druids

We think that this is a superb photo, probably taken during practice for the Brands Hatch 1000 Km. race (sometimes also referred to as the BOAC 1000) which took place on April 12, 1970. The car is a Ferrari 512S shown braking for Druids Corner at the top of the hill which is about a […]

Pedro’s Greatest Race?

On April 12, 1970 the BOAC 1000Km. Race, counting for the world championship for sports cars, was held at Brands Hatch, located in Kent south of London. Here is the Porsche 917K which was entered by John Weir’s team on behalf of Porsche and driven by Pedro Rodriguez and Leo Kinnunen. Their Porsche is shown […]

A Ferrari Barchetta

  Here we are in the hills above Lake Garda, north of Brescia, on July 10, 1949. For a number of years a race was held on a public road circuit in and above the town of Salò at the southern end of Lake Garda. The race was called the Circuito del Garda. It started […]

Porsche versus Ferrari

The Syracuse Grand Prix in 1960 was held on March 19th on the old public road circuit at Syracusa on the southeast coast of Sicily. The race was for Formula 2 cars then of 1500cc motor capacity. There was considerable interest from both the entrants and the spectators as this would become the capacity for […]

Ferrari, klemcoll, Chris Amon, Charade

A Lone Ferrari

This is again one of our favorite images, Chris Amon in the Ferrari 312F1 during the French Grand Prix on July 6, 1969, probably in the long right-hand Gravenoire turn. This running of the French Grand Prix, the oldest of all, took place at the Charade circuit near Clermont-Ferrand, home town of Michelin, in central […]

Jackie Stewart, Monaco Grand Prix, klemcoll, Louis Chiron

To the Victor the Spoils of Success

We love this iconic finishing photo of Louis Chiron offering the checkered flag to Jackie Stewart in his BRM P261. The occasion was the Monaco Grand Prix on May 22, 1966. Chiron was one of Monte Carlo’s most famous motor racing figures, having won this race in 1931 with a Bugatti Type 51 and competed […]

Ferrari on a Pedestal

Raised on a workshop pedestal in a garage in the town of Le Mans is one of the three Scudeia Ferrari entries of the factory’s so-called 121LM, an in-line six cylinder sports car of 4.4 liters displacement. This work is taking place after practice as the car shows some post-running wet weather effects on its […]


A Personal Memory

This lovely image was taken by our dear friend the photo-journalist Jim Sitz during practice for the Swedish Grand Prix, a six hour race for sports cars at the Råbelövsbanan circuit at Kristianstad, which took place on August 8, 1957. This portrait is of the talented Belgian driver Olivier Gendebien who was driving one of […]

A Champion at Spa

The raised apex of the La Source hairpin was always a favorite spot for photographers during races at Spa-Francorchamps as it allowed for close up photographs of the drivers at work at low speeds on this otherwise super fast circuit. Also, as here, the often wet Spa weather did not involve the massive amounts of […]

klemcoll, John Surtees, Cooper, Oulton Park

A Double Champion

John Surtees, seen above, was already a famous motorcycle racer having won a total of seven World Championships on both 350cc and 500cc machines for MV Agusta. Now he was thinking about trying four wheels… So here he is on the grid at Oulton Park on April 2, 1960 aboard a Cooper-BMC T52 FJr. entered […]
