    Default Old racing pictures - Post them here thanks

    Anybody got any cool racing pictures stashed away? Since the plague lockdown I've been watching lots of old racing on youtube and I really like to look at the old race cars.

    Josh Brookes at Cadwell Park, 2015. That jump is such a mindfuck to watch. I don't know what it is but it doesn't look real.

    I thought more people would be into racing pictures.

    Edit: I don't know who this is, but here's a jif.

    Le Mans 1981 Walter Rohrl working on his car. 40 years later the Porsche garage looks a bit different.

    Really cool thread idea, here is my contribution. I really love the old liveries, so here is one of the wildest ones out there on the iconic Porsche 917.

    Giacomo Agostini at Quarterbridge, Isle of Man Senior TT, 1970. This picture, taken by Nick Nicholls, led to this section of the course being renamed Ago's Leap.

    A neat picture I found of Joey Dunlop (#3 Honda) and Robert Dunlop (#4 Norton) at the North West 200 in 1991. Those rotary Nortons are really neat sounding bikes.

    20 years ago, how time flies. Geoff Bodine missed 10 races but went on to race another 12 years, absolutely brutal crash. At this point in the pictures, 2 tires gone, engine and transmission gone.

    Guy Martin's crash at Ballagarey in the 2010 Isle of Man Senior TT.

    On the third lap of the 37.73-mile public-roads course, just after pitting to refuel and while running second, Martin crashed at the terrifyingly fast Ballagarey corner. With no run-off, Martin and his Honda CBR1000RR smashed into a stone wall. With its brimmed fuel tank torn apart in the impact, the bike exploded in flames, causing the first red flag in more than a century of Senior TT racing.

    Incredibly, Martin remained conscious throughout-suffering a bruised and punctured lung and minor fractures in his vertebrae, but no permanent injuries. Just one day earlier, New Zealander Paul Dobbs, a privateer racer but one of Triumph's key development riders, was killed in the same place when he crashed in the second Supersport race.

    "It's a fast corner," Martin told TV cameras from his hospital bed afterwards. "That would probably be at the top of the list of corners not to crash at. 'Ballascarey,' some people call it. You go into it in sixth gear, then go back a gear into fifth, so you're probably going down from 190 mph to around 170, then you go over a crest and into the corner. As I went over the crest, I just tucked the front. Sometimes you can go a bit easier with the throttle and get it back, or put your knee in the ground and save it, but it didn't happen. I got about two-thirds of the way round the corner and thought, 'I'm not getting this back.' So I jumped ship.

    "From then on, it's a bit of a blur. I remember seeing the wall, hitting it, bouncing back across, hitting another wall and bouncing back into the road. I'm lucky still to be here. In the hospital they were asking what happened, as my eyebrows and hair were singed. I didn't know anything about the fire until I saw the pictures."

    ^^ That Alfa is so bad ass, i remember racing with it in the old Gran Turismo games and the exhaust looked glitched since it was so large (and the graphics were obviously quite poor)
