Mostly not.
As a motorcycle racing fan I have been a follower of John Surtees for a long time. John won seven championships on two wheels and only one that I know of on four wheels. To me he is as much or more a motorcyclist than a race car driver.

I have also had my choices in place for subjects and images for a number of weeks. I had to do a couple of quick changes when you or jimmyj beat me to posting something I had already chosen.

I do share your enthusiasm for the career of the honorable Mr Surtees. Pay attention. I am not done with John for this countdown.

When I started my addiction to motor racing, John Surtees was driving cars. And this being mainly a 4 wheels forum, I didn't even thought of posting motorcycle photos. Silly me.
By the way, I stopped riding a long time ago.

Next year, I'll concentrate my countdown on French cars and drivers... With may be some bits of John Surtees here and there.

My pleasure! Although I don't know the precise arrangements the Belgian team had with Ferrari, it does make you think about a modern equivalent for customer cars.

And I have to say Olivier Gendebien was a far better driver than I was aware of. I wish Stoffel could have had a top car these last few years. Ah well...

As long as I know, the entry of a Ferrari for Gendebien at Spa under national Belgian colours, was a reward from Ferrari for his dedication to the Ferrari team. He had a contract to drive sport cars, and as "spare driver" for formula 1. Being one of the best endurance drivers of his time, he entered very few F1 races, but was offered a drive at every Belgian GP at the end of '50s and first years of '60s. These were official Scuderia Ferrari entries, despite the yellow colours of the cars. It's said Enzo Ferrari appreciated the gentlemanliness of Gendebien... Other times, times over...

My pics are being shared with both, this forum and with a motorcycle forum that has a Formula 1 annual thread that is pretty heavily followed. My own long history with motorcycles and that forum is the reason I have included at least 1 pic of motorcycle competition every day. I have already started cataloging some pics for the 2020 season and some pics that are worthy of reposting from this year.

Always glad to see your contributions.

My next trip away from my base in southwest of France will be Ostend (because of a French song and a Flemish book)... But I won't be in Brussels the 1st of may. Enjoy it, it's one of my favourite towns in Europe ! And Belgium is a friendly place.
Remember my base can be yours when you decide to travel in the southwest of France.

From the days when drivers knew where the limits of the track were. True, they could look out of their cockpits in those days. Which presumably means that increased safety requires far stricter stewarding.

They'd better know them... Ignoring them could be fatal.

The song is "Comme à Ostende" written by Léo Ferré and Jean-Roger Caussimon - Originally sung by Léo Ferré (I'm a great lover of his work). And a lot of other singers through the years. You can get an excellent and more recent cover by Arno (who was born in Ostend).
The book is "Flamand des vagues" by Jan van Dorp. Written in French though the author was of Flemish descent (and translated into Flemish). A great novel about 3 generations of Ostend privateers at the end of the 17th century. One of my favourite "sea" books, and simply a great book of great style, whatever the drawer you put it in...
