A Blast From The Past

From my archives; Perhaps someone can turn them up the right way, I can not seem to manage it.
I found these while Spring cleaning a few old files, maybe you might like to ID them?

The third one is the '84 Tyrrell. Stefan Johansson did a few races for them. That's the year that the team got disqualified.

I don't think I'd win any prizes for saying the "Fly Saudia" is a Williams. Given the cheeky message perhaps its Alan Jones at a test session.

As for the rest of them.....go to blazes will ya.

I've always thought that motorsport photography might be a sideline of yours Baud, the ange of your posting appears to confirm this!
Once I've managed to turn my monitor over I'll have a look and post in my answers.

Not bad Paradise, certainly the Swede, Brands Hatch 1984. You can read his name on the airbox.

Yes of course a Williams during a tyre test at Silverstone, but the helmet should give a clue as to who thought what of Frank.

The other two? You can just see the car from which the wheel had come off. A shunt that stopped the race.

The Metro? It was originally a colour shot and Castrol actually bought a copy for the Winner of the Saloon Car Championship of the day. One of my few successes as a photographer.

I did not pick the pictures out they just came to light when clearing out a few files.

If it helps I have only worked in the UK.

Well done,

Bauble.

Actually Viv all the pictures are the right way up, they were all having accidents.

That Metro is Roger Saunders' car from 1982. Looks like Brands.

Bottom Bend (is it still called that?) British GP support race Brands Hatch 1984.

If I recall correctly Roger won the Saloon Car Championship that year, and Castrol purchased a copy of my, colour, picture to present to him. I was particularly pleased with the shot as it was exactly what I was trying for.

The wheel is from one of the cars involved in an accident at Paddock Bend on the first lap in 1988, I am fairly certain it is from Laffite's Ligier, which might give you a clue at to the helmet picture.

The other picture is Stefan Johansson's Tyrell during qualifying for the 1984 Grand Prix, he was involve in a shunt at Paddock on lap 1.

Memories, memories.

The wheel may be from the Laffitte Ligier but the car in the background No 29 is the Huub Rothengater Zakspeed 861, Laffittes car was no 26. I do not remember Rothengater in the 1st lap crash though. the other Zakspeed, no14 of Jonathan Palmer was.

Not sure you have this one right Bob. Perhaps some better informed tenthers can clear this one up.

Now listen here young fella, don't question my memory, there were several cars abandoned at Paddock, and just because you can see a Zakspeed does not mean the wheel is from that.
However, as I said I only think it was from the Ligier, but it was a long time ago.

The cars involved were; Danner's Arrows and the Osellas of Ghinzani and Berg plus the Ligier. I was to bust dodging out of the way to get any action snaps, but the wheel caught my eye afterwards.

Now if I am completely wrong and it was in fact 1984 then the casualties of a first lap carambolange (?) were;

Cheever Alfa Romeo
Johansson Tyrell
Alliot Ram
Gartner Osella
Cecotto Toleman.


I'm sorry I started this.......

Cecotto didn't start due to a crash in practice which ended his F1 career.

The first lap crash was caused by Patrese doing a 360 between Druids and Bottom Bend

Which Saloon Car Championship? Saunders definitely never won the BSCC title, neither in his class nor outright. He didn't race in 1984 either, and nor were there any Metros in either of the Brands Hatch races that year.

That picture is definitely his late-1982 livery (the car was red & yellow earlier in the season), so unless he kept the car in that livery and raced it in another series later, I fail to see how it could be any other year.
