I took this a year later than the LC1 picture.  BOAC 1000km at Brands in 1983.

To think Simon, we could have been standing next to each other. And you could have taken those Fulvia brake shoes and saved me the postage from the Languedoc!

I took these pictures of the LC2 at the Donington Historic Festival in 2012.

Great photo`s Norm. Love the gearbox & spring/damper mounts machined from billet aluminium. Neat welding on the turbo intercooler pipework too. Sponsored by "WURTH" judging by the consumables on the trolley!

I've seen that on a number of competition cars too, not entirely sure why it's so other than for packaging reasons, not so many belt run components off the crank I guess..most things like water pumps are often electric, wouldn't be power steering pump either so may not be a "fan belt" as such...

Does it concern energy efficiency?

As there seems to be quite a lot of interest in the LC2, here are some more pictures from 2012 Donington.

Have seen alternators off the prop shaft on vintage cars - easier to package and hidden.

A D-Type Jaguar has a pump for brake pressure (pioneering with disk brakes, at the time they thought they needed a pressure pump as for aircraft control and braking systems) and they drove that off the back of the gearbox as the pump didn't like the variation in revs from the engine and shock loads.  A consequence of that was it being easy to lock the wheels at very high speed, at which point the pump stops and brakes disappear.  Alas that did NOT work as ABS.  As an aside it used to take a full day to change the brake pads, but they were so thick they'd survive a full 24hrs at LeMans without needing to be changed.  Later versions had quick change pads as we know today.  (I've been reading the D-Type Haynes "manual").

In those LC2 pictures interesting to see just how big ground effect tunnels used to be.  Obviously the regulations restricted these for later racing cars, but the RB 001 isn't regulated as an idea of what's "best" (depends on what for....)
