1960/70s Sports Racing Cars

To accompany the 1970s 2-litre sports thread, how about some of the other Long distance sports cars from Groups 4, 5 & 6? This period gave us some of the most beautiful race cars ever built.
See what I mean? The start of the 1969 BOAC 1000 at Brands with Amon's Ferrari at the front.

Another favourite - the Chevvy powered Lola T70 MkIII. Seen here at Spa in an historic GT race.

Just had to steal this pic I posted in the 'Snetterton' thread. T70s and GT40 on the grid at Snett in 1969.

Here a very rare one , the Willment BRM, looking like a pick-up in 1968. This car was also raced by Hans Hermann some time earlier.

Who remembers this one, never raced in his home-country, only once in Spa, suffering the terrible rain during the race. (photo 1968)

Re nothing. This is just such a sexy shot. Actually, it's Bobby Rayhal in 935 of course, practice at Silverstone. Probably 1990 but I need to dig deeper to check the date. And Rayhall was super quick in those conditions.
Bravo the marshals as usual. How do you spell Rayhal?

Rahal - earlier than 1990 I would have thought John? Early 80s?
