Oh no, it's a 2 litre in the same race:

Angry FHA is a close match to the V8 Lolas.


Up close and personal.


One of the best 60s / 70s sports car shapes in my eye.


I can tell you I don't fit very well.

Next: historic 60s / 70s / early 80s F1.

Late 70s / early 80s DFV powered F1 look so good.


Back in the day Clay was a poster on my wall.


Classic JPS livery.


More old skool smoking: Gitanes was my brand when it was still allowed.


I'm not an expert on early 60s F1 but how fragile does this Lotus look?


Soundpr oof! Two litre four screamer.

Next: Porsche and night shots.

Ferrari monoposto magic.


That must be the Jano V6, later enlarged and used in the Fiat Dino and Dino 246.


Imagine sitting there, fondling the stick and keeping the 6 on the boil with your right feet while waiting to rip the skies with a burst of raw decibels in a hot lap around Spa.


Resting.


The 30s to early 60s racing cars (not sports cars) are the best, they really are. Originallity in design and approach made unique characters to love and enjoy. I can only hope they will be enjoyed and campaigned at future events.

Next: 1950s Maserati entries.
