Most motor racing folk look back to their favourite eras from time to time because we have brains that store memories. Like all 'disciplines' motor sport, in all its forms, has gone through highs and lows, but even during troughs, we can often reflect on something that has been stored in our minds with affection.
As usual your views and images will always be of great interest. And thanks.
Thanks for you terrific pic, Quark. It makes me want to watch Steve McQueen's film of '70 again, which I might well do again later. We have trough guests this evening, so a little background 917 music might help the 'conversation' along. Yep, I feel another Force 10 on the way.
Funny you should ask. From what I know, which isn't much, The Solex building was #K and Pits 36-40 are as pictured. #3, #25, #22,#21 and #20. The group of Pit garages just to the North, which would be section #G are numbered 31-35. Those pits contained, 908/2 #27, 917K #18, 917K #24 (qualified but was withdrawn), 917K #23, and Pit garage #35 was vacant. Those 5 garages aren't built yet. So they aren't in the picture
Here is the Starting Grid in order, accurate to 11 places.
I've found the allocation of pits changed frequently between qually and the race, can get confusing looking at old photographs.
Looking at test weekend photographs is easier to spot usually, as the cars tended to run different race numbers and simpler liveries.
Of course, Henk. You're absolutely right, but even during old age codger stage, I continue to look forward to the new cars, as I know you also do. Could be a a golden season ahead so, let's go forward with optimism and hope and... a large dollop of the good stuff without my recalcitrant uncle Bonkers. A votre sante, Henk.
Yes Trisha, I can hardly wait for the 24-hours of Le Mans this year
It is many many moons ago when brands like Porsche, Ferrari, BMW, Peugeot and other main manufactures used to compete there.
Sebring already lifted a tip of the curtain but I’m sure when they arrive on Le Mans they will even go faster.
