Guided Tour part 1 – Motorsport

Seeing as I’ve merged the mydadsphotos blog and the john.shendy.co.uk website, I thought I’d give a brief guided tour of what you can find.
First up – the motorsport.

The crown jewels of this section are undoubtedly from my dad’s trips to Le Mans 1959, 1960 and 1961, plus the Monaco Grand Prix 1962 – some fantastic images, especially the colour ones like this
Line of cars in Scrutineering - Porsche, #24 Cooper T 49 Monaco Mk I/ Coventry Climax (Jim Russell and Bruce McLaren), #23 Ferrari Dino 196 S (Giulio Cabianca and Giorgio Scarlatti), #16 Ferrari 250 GT California (Bob Grossman and Fernand Tavano), #14 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa (Phil Hill and Olivier Gendebien)

But that’s not all there is – there are photos from 6 British GP’s between 1958 and 1977, 7 International Trophy events between 1960 and 1974, and all sorts of other events from Silverstone and Brands Hatch. Not to mention some vintage car stuff as well.

Unfortunately there aren’t any more motorsport photos to add – I’ve scanned and posted basically everything, including some of less than perfect quality, as it’s such a great set of photos from a classic era of motorsport.
There are lots more photos of cars to come as my dad would always take photos of anything interesting he saw – lots of Ferraris as my mum is a huge fan of them.
