    I like Hawtorn myself. I do not have any of Peter Collins. I do have some interesting photos of the Monza/Indianapolis race in Monza 1959. Many of my action shots are blured so I don't post them. Try to show the best ones.

    David could you give me permission to use the 1960 Spa picture on my site www.sharknose.net on the Gendebien GP section ?

    #18 is S/N 1931, which was owned and raced in the 70s by Leo Keating and maintained by Art Bly. I drove that car a number of times, what a magnificent piece.

    the SWB pics are not from Le Mans 1962.

    No.19 was the 250 GTO 3705GT and 18 was a 250 TR.

    where are they from? s/n ? is 18 1931GT ?

    Would it be safe to assume that the photo with the yellow # 18 cars shows a 250 GT Berlinetta Interim?

    If that is correct, it would be the NART entered car for Andre Pilette and George Arents and would date the photo to 1959.

    S/N 1461GT is a LWB Interim that was originally pale yellow and was delivered new to Chinetti. It's maiden race was Le Mans 1959.

    My bet is 1959.

    This #18 is 1931. It is a bog standard alloy 250SWB built for NART and later raced by Denise McCluggage. It was driven by Arents and Connell to 5th place in the 1960 Le Mans race.

    Thanks Tina,
    The research for the site is almost as enjoyable as the project itself.

    Regards,

    Hi Jeroen,

    If you meant this yellow one, that’s true I’m driving it but it’s not a GTB/4 but a standard GTB short nose (but with 6 carbs). Btw the picture was taken by Kevin Blommaert who joined me during the Modena Motorsport Days in July of last year.

    The short wheelbase 250 photos could be from 1960 LeMans. #18 I believe is Chassis 1931. I had a chance to do work on that car and drive it when it was owned by Jeff Hayes in the 1980s. Great car! I have no LeMans 1961 so they must be from 1960!

    My guess is:

    Roger Penske Cooper Monaco is car #46 DNF

    Stirling Moss in car #18 is chassis #2643; finished 4th overall, 1st in class

    the third car looks like a Fiat Abarth, but none were entered. There was an Alfa Giulietta SZ #82 that was driven by Paul Richards to 26th place, but the nose, windows etc do not look like the Alfa to me.

    Stirling Moss drove the GTO Prototype to victory, not a short wheelbase! I will post a picture of it some other time. I don't think the SWB is #18? I believe you are correct about the Alfa SZ.
