Thanks Bob.... I got the Bugattis and the Astons ERA's and things but the Cognac Special I did not have a clue. Talbots I am getting better with as they feature a bit here. Im getting better at them all generally now though. Sandown Historics in a few weeks time so I will be making a point of looking closely at the early machinery then, camera in hand.
Ten hours ahead here so not bedtime yet, and I tend to be a night owl these days. Dont have dinner much before 10. Anyway I digress. Back to pictures. I'll dig out some F5000's for you
Oh and love the Maserati. (250F?)

morninggents should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
That Maserati is a beautiful looking car and epitomises that era. I was lucky enough to see them race in period, at Silverstone in 1958, but they were becoming uncompetitive by then. The Ferrari 246 of the same period was also a fine looking car.

Where were you spectating? We might have been rubbing shoulders?

I was at Copse.

Chris, re the Cognac Special, not sure when it was built or who built it but it uses a GN Chassis with an AC engine all ffrom the 1920's. I remember Ron Footitt winning many VSCC races in the 1970's.
Looking forward to seeing your F5000 pictures particularly the more unusal ones ie Begg and Matich. We do have a McRae GM entered at Silverstone this weekend.
20F's were great looking cars then and now.

What a great name for a car! Unfortunately though Cognac’s nomenclature has no direct link to the French appellation. It is an acronym composed from the maker’s name – Mr S. A. Cohen, the fact that it had a GN chassis and an AC engine. All together that gives CO-GN-AC!
The car dates from 1925 and has a 1991cc engine. It has been raced all its life, most notably by Ron Foottit. Now in the hands of Tony Lees.

I was at Copse.

Bottom end of the circuit between Stowe and Club. Don't remember too much about it as I wasn't feeling too good and we went to Silverstone on our way down to London to see my sister and then on to Dorset where I spent most of the holiday in hospital at Poole with pneumonia.

Love the little leather armrests! A bit lacking in rollover protection, but at least a padded spot for your arms.... priorities!

Thanks Bob.... I now feel edumacated.
Great to see it has been used hard all its nigh on 100 year life

Did someone mention 1950's Ferraris? (Well they did race the original Lancia first.)

I have always loved the D50 with the sidepods, be it called Lancia or Ferrari, dependant on year.

Do not think so Bob Vittorio designed it for Lancia and they used them in 54 & 55. Ferraari did enter some late in 55 but 6 was the 1st season as a Ferrari. Castelotti was one that was entered in a Ferrari D50 at Monza but he finished 3rd in a Ferrari 555.
