Aside from all the hilarity - would anyone care to speculate on the actual circumstances of this nearly unbelievable maneuver?

Radiator cap just coming loose?

Can you imagine what would have happened if it came off in his hand?

raymond mays at shelsey walsh driving [i think] "cordon rouge" a t23/13 brescia....if you knew how ettore held the rear wheels on a brescia you wouldn't be surprised....as to the original photo, the riding mechanic in a gp bug was a busy guy required to perform all sorts of unseemly tasks....in this case i'm sure it was cooling related and not serious enough to require stopping the car...[as there was no water temp guage the mechanic relied on a radiator cap mounted glass tube/mercury thermometer...if the cap rotated a bit the line of sight was interrupted and required adjustment.

While I do not doubt the accuracy of your responses, Dave, they are just not funny enough for this thread. Please try a little harder next time, will you?
