Peter Collins in a Formula 1 Maserati 250F. Crystal Palace 30/05/1955
Colin Chapman in a Lotus XI. Goodwood 24/09/1955

A couple of shots from the 1955 motorsport summer.
The amount of detail my dad recorded on some of these shots is great – written on the back of the prints of these two photos is the following:
1) Formula 1 Maserati 250F (2.5 litre), disc brakes, alloy wheels. Owen Racing Organisation car, driven by Peter Collins
2) Lotus Mk IX Climax, 1097cc. Six Mile Stable, driven by Colin Chapman. Almost certainly XPE8, the works car at Le Mans 1955. Cleaned up on the races that day.
