    Here's one to start off.
    It's Jack Brabham at the Nurburgring.

    Here's one of my favourites. In what I consider to be the best era for beautiful racing cars - mid 50s to mid 60s - the DBRs were some of the absolute best.

    I've been scanning in photos and slides from my grandfather, for my parents, and came across these pictures. Apparently my granddad and great uncle worked occasionally for Silverstone on the medical side, my grandfather a GP and great uncle as a surgeon.

    I hope they are of interest, I quite like the one of Stirling Moss on the monkey bike :)

    It's great.

    I just wish when I was a kid watching F1 with him in the late eighties he had mentioned it to me, I only found out today (he was always quite a reserved chap).

    Unfortunately my grandparents had a minor fire and he lost 5 boxes of slides he had stored in the garage, shortly before he died in 1996; there could have well been more motorsports photos :(

    Anyway thank you Patrick (Pat) Phillips for this blast from the past :)
