Historic Racing Pictures by Bob

Post by Bob Bull on Fri Mar 28, 2014 4:03 am



My latest wheeze! A place for the photographers to post their photos (OK Pete?), this a random pick to get the Gallery underway. Perhaps it may persuade a few more people to sigh up and show off their prowess. Well we can only hope.

Well I never!....after patiently waiting 7 days, 'they' allowed me to post my photograph in "Silverstone Classic". Rather than incur the wrath of the 'Punctuation Police', I refrained from using any abbreviation of "photograph".   jocolor

Well done Greg, as far as I could tell there was no reason for the 'ban', however, get your own picture gallery, I don't want to take the blame .... sorry! Credit for yours.

Cobber....now there's a word you seldom here in Australia these days. The younger generation is adopting 'American' as their language. Examples:-

Bloke or cove....now 'dude'.
Mate or cobber....now 'buddy'.
Bonzer or beaut....now 'cool'........and so on.  No

Bob, I had a lot of trouble reading "Andrew Jordan", on the A40 - how could you read it with that silly hat on  Question

Bob, Thank you for the link to your photos [via email]. Outstanding !

You must have been out standing in all sorts of weather for those shots. Seriously, I have not seen better.

Damned Gob-smacked.

Why thank you Greg, praise is always welcome, even from someone whose photographic skills have been shown to be somewhat less than average.

All are free to download so you could probably make a fortune selling copies to the Outback cognoscenti.

Very kind regards,

Mr Bull.

This one is for Pete, our Black and White man. Ah! But does he know what it is?



This really was taken with a Box Brownie long ago and not too far away.

1934 Derby-Maserati.

Moss on a Cooper-Alta T23? God, was it ugly, not exactly a beauty like the Vanwall 58. Don't really know, but must be Silverstone on a weekend GP.

This Moss's own Cooper Alta, purpose built for him, but never very good, he also had a standard Cooper (Bristol) with an Alta engine running on nitro methane, but that is a whole different story.

The second car is a Rover Formula 2 car1 Really!!!

Bob.

Thanks for identifying the Derby, I had completely forgotten what it was.
