I believe Lola-BRM from my photo title, but could be wrong. Does this help?

I think it’s more like a lotus 23 or similar.

Nope, I'm wrong - seems to be Brabham-BRM BT8:


Driven by Duncan Dayton (the Texas logo on the side matches also)

So it was comprehensively bent in 2004 Revival / Whitsun Trophy, then repaired and 10yrs later sold at auction for USD250k as per your link

I’m fairly sure the bridge is being driven by Covid and the need to keep people spaced out.
The last thing we need is a lot of drugged up people wandering around a race track!

The cynic in me says this is just another ploy to create a 'landmark' location opportunity for a future sponsor.

Well, you can be as cynical as you like , but having been to the early Revivals, and latterly the Members' Meeting , I'd happily admit that some of my best times at race circuits have been at Goodwood . I prefer Cadwell as a place to watch racing cars at very close range , and Goodwood may cost an arm and most of one's legs but it is magic , I don't mind admitting . If the Duke wants to sell some advertising space on the bridge that is fine by me- I am sure it will be in keeping , and not a big ad for Gocompare .

I got very chippy with the hooray element at the Revival , but the last MM in 2019 (which seems a lifetime ago ) was sheer bloody magic. I have never understood why so many spectators have apparently lost the ability to move under their own steam and watch at the chicane (so- so at best ) or Madgwick (good but only if you don't mind looking at the back of people's heads). As said above St Mary's is wonderful , and last time I was there you could count the spectators present with only a few hands' worth of fingers .
