Hi there, During one of my (infrequent) reviews of what is on my system, I was reminded that I had never passed on an image of the above car. I think it was taken around September 1966 either before or after Zeltweg. I was the mechanic(shown) employed by Viscount Downe who co-owned the car with Paddy McNally, the editor of Autosport, having bought it from the Essex Wire Corporation.

Last time I heard it was owned by a Mr Maldonado (Not Pastor, of Grand Prix fame) but that was a few years ago now.

  1. Please find attached image of GT40P/1026, at the time owned by Viscount Downe, driven primarily by Mike Salmon. The image was taken at White Waltham Aerodrome, adjacent to the John Deere tractor factory where we rented a workshop. I am the person in the image(I was the team mechanic) and I believe that it was taken before/after Zeltweg in September 1966, although the race number in GT40 history records it as ‘7’
