The Stewart/Cevert shot looks very much like North Tower to me - if it is, I was standing right behind that Dunlop banner!

Thanks for the "Hawkeye" pic, he's one of my favourites.

There is a report in today's Sunday Times that say's if London bids for the 2012 Olympics then Crystal Palace could be used for the stadium. The current sports arena would be torn down and rebuilt. This would still leave room on the site for 2 other stadiums.

Presumably this, should it go ahead, would tear up what little remains of the existing circuit.

Shall we start a "SAVE CRYSTAL PALACE" campagain now ?

I recall that the last meeting was well publisised. The Motoring News editorial commented that the crowd was not as large as they and the organisers anticipated after such publicity. The editor concluded that London didn't deserve a circuit so close to public transport with easy access.

Yes I still miss it from my Southern days. Imagine a flock of Caterhams dicing around that track!

Lets assume (!!!!) that the noise problem could be overcome. What would be the level of spectator support in the current climate?
I suspect that spectators would only go to the high profile meetings such as BTCC, GT, & F3.
Do you agree?

no on the strengh of the last motorsport event at cp (may 2000) there would be huge spectator interest in a limited calendar. However a lot of money would need to be put in for cars to ever race there again

I recently looked out the old programmes I have from when my dad took me to Crystal Palace - some great names e.g. Graham Hill, Jackie Stewart, James Hunt.

Does anyone recall an old BBC programme called "100 Greatest Sporting Moments" - I have a video copy - it was a F3 race when one J Hunt crashed into another car on the final corner of the last lap and J Hunt got out and tried to land a punch on the other guy!

Was it C.P. where some of the Italian Job was filmed? I thought it was the start/finish straight where the Minis practiced before going to Italy.

I have that race on video too and what a cracker it was!
Dave Morgan was the guy that James lumped despite the fact that he had his crash helmet on.
Other guys at the front in the race included Dave Walker, Tony Trimmer, Gerry Birrell and Mike Beuttler.
And yes - it was definitely the pit straight where they filmed the Italian Job.
