So much happier now we're in the 30's - it means testing isn't far away too :)

Yes, I thought it particularly striking... as well as timely given Gurney's recent passing.

Fiki, it is 1960 Monaco. According to the picture it's Phil Hill and Jack Brabham. Man I wish I had a time machine.

Muchas gracias Jimmy! You're not the only one, I would love to have seen Fangio in action. And Graham Hill and most of all Jim Clark and Jacky Ickx. Plus a bit more of Thierry Boutsen.

Lovely cars in these shots!

Same era as the other pic, 1958 Monaco, from Pinterest. I couldn't find the original source.
