Well I personally took this picture of one of them in 1985 I think, at a Classic Gt race at Brands Hatch UK. I was racing the car in the third pic.....
Nowadays I just bench race - but I don't even do that much any more.
(PS in the background of the 3rd shot, you can just make out the "old" Paddock Bend....best corner in the world bar none (before they sanitised it just like the Bus Stop
In those days, we never got covered "pits" in the Paddock either...and we certainly weren't allowed near the hallowed "Grand Prix" garages!
