Yeps.

Remembered Earl of Dumfries from a book I read on Senna. Dumfries was his teammate at Toleman or Lotus, I think.

de Portago is referred to in Intersection Diaries.

I read a book with some short stories on F1-drivers not too long ago. The exploits of Godin de Beaufort was one of them. Others were on Willy Mairese, Pironi, how Fangio was kidnapped in Cuba and can't remember the last one right now.

Very Happy

Timo

Jackie Stewart with what seems to be a Mclaren. Interlagos may be scratch

Yes Jackie Stewart, it is a McLaren but what type, not Interlagos and when.

I had not seen the picture before, very interesting. Was it Stewart's only F5000 drive. To find his laptimes and why he was driving it would be great.

It's a McLaren M10B, it's pressumably the Roval at Ontario Motor Speedway in 1971.

Stewert apparently had a test in it in preparation for the non-championship race held there, the Questor GP scratch

Questor GP 71. I'm assuming Stewart is practicing and getting used to the track. His Tyrrell probably hadn't arrived yet.

I found this quote in this thread.

http://forums.autosport.com/topic/15973-the-1971-ontario-motor-speedway-questor-gp-merged/

"The Questor was a true case of hype. Jackie Stewart agreed
to shake down a McLaren F500 for A.J. Foyt and pronounced
it competative. Foyt's opinion of Stewart's setup was unkind
at best."
