Who is this?

I have been given a photo of a bloke called Jonny Hardman in an Aston Martin 50ís Le Mans car
Anyone with an idea of who he is?
Know of Tom but never heard of a Jonny!

relativtortoise should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Peter Hardman was a regular pilot of a DBR1 maybe a relation?

Peter is the well known driver.
Have been told the fellow I am intrigued to find is from Midlands so a strong link with Peter
Could be that the fellow I thought was driving was actually the passenger with a relative being the passenger?
Needle in haystack job!

Can you post the picture, John? Might help, any notion of how old the picture is, where taken, etc.?

I was sent a photo of a fifties DB3S Aston the other day and asked if I recognised the driver who I was told name Jonny Hardman.I have no idea age of picture or if it was a real Aston.The driver it seems according to the information did Monte Carlo Historicís andLe Mans and from West Midlands

Not worth taking it very far and it was just seeing if anyone recognised the name.
Itís not Peter Hardman in car.

The Cooper connection is closest to real name but looks about 50 so it doesnít work age wise.
Leave it at moment!

Can you recognise the car, John? Not many DB3's around any more, might give a clue.

Anyone recognise this happy chappy? at a guess I'd say the photo was 10 years old. most phones have much better resolution now, let alone cameras.

Cheers Zef
Spoke to one of the main men in Historicís last night and he didnít recognise him and thought the car was a copy
This all started when I mentioned to a mate that all people are only one person away from anyone else involved in the pastime!
At that point he sent me copy of photo and asked did I know of this car as he was looking for a real one and unlike other types there doesnít seem any for sale.

Probably taken when some of our customers did a photo op at Le Mans a few years ago .

Right well, I think that is indeed a copy and it's not of a DB3S. It's a copy of a DBR1/300, of which only 5 were built and they would all be £20million plus, if they ever came up for sale.
