........ Later this year I'll be doing a 1950's UK racetrack paddock diorama with truck, two cars and caravan. Looking for inspirational photos as to what else to include, I came across this late 60's Team Lotus photo.

The teams of today would have a pink fit. Just look at the DVF just lying there on the ground!!!

Thats Hills 49B at silverstone if i recall correctly....

Was scrunching through the BBC archives and saw that ........ there was one where a mechanic was warming up a cooper at Oulton park ... wheels just off the grass and spinning nicely on a flip stand and directly in line were about a dozen people ... if it dropped ... oooo ya bugger!! ... no worries though there was a bit of string protecting them at ankle height lol

I'll try find the link...


Edit .... quicker than i thought

I love the picture of Moss.

When's the last time you actually had a cup of tea and a saucer. I haven't seen an actual saucer for years now.
