1980 and 1984 Birmingham parades

On Facebook, I stumbled across a photo album of the 1980 On The Streets parade and 1984 Chequer Bitter parade in Birmingham, UK. I was able to ID some of the cars myself but I couldn't ID the rest of the photos. Could anyone help me out please?

Who is the driver in which car?

The Lola T297 is not listed on the programme notes so we need to find out the driver but Mike Hailwood is driving the Gulf Mirage M2 BRM.

Nigel Dawes is a good friend of Martin Hone who organised the parade so that must be him. But what is the car as I can't find anything?

Who are the sidecar riders/pilots?

I got photos of Andy Grahame and Finn Jensen so who is the Birmingham Brummies rider?

David Ham in his 1958 Lister Jaguar. What about the driver and car behind?

Ford GT40 - Could it be Mike Salmon, Vince Woodman, Lord Ian Lowson, Brian Poole or Mike Dawes?
