She has Moss and Hawthorn's attention too. Do we know who she is?
Did wonder if it was Bardot?

Not from Alan and Facebook but a nice one of Peter & Lin Hon Baker on the Historique Monte Carlo with OPD 37E.

Like the shot of the Fulvias on the transporter. Never seen them being transported like that before.

Like the shot of the Lambda. I wonder who and where? Gerald driving home from the pub perhaps?

Stan,
Back in the early 1960's I used to drive a car transporter for a living delivering new Vauxhalls to the docks for shipment mainly to Canada, another Company we worked with had one similar to this one, and it was always breaking down with cars stuck on top deck, the only way to get them off was to use an artic transporter with the cab at right angles the the other one, and with the other trailer in the up position lined up the the broken down one, then the cars were driven from one to the other, bit dodgy but it worked, I'll see if I can find the photo of it in action.

More.
One not a Lancia by look of it although it appears to be a belt drive, and there's writing on the doors in English, although this might be a foreign car possibly at the sheds at Brooklands or somewhere similar.

I doubt if a car that size was belt-driven, Brian. I think that's more likely to be the countershaft for a chain-drive assembly; the large drum is presumably a transmission brake. My guess is Fiat, circa 1908 ... but that is only a guess!

AH! Thanks Mike,
Couldn't think what else the pulley might be for, but my first thoughts to Alan was that it had the look of a big Fiat from that period about it.

They could probably increase performance if they removed, say, about a quarter of a ton from the flywheel.

I would like to suggest that it is an early Locomobile! I was taken by the makeshift wooden trestles used to support the front axle ..... then noticed one has Loco written on it. Google 'Loco' and up pops Locomobile and, of course, a few images! The bonnet shape of the cars seems to be consistent and accords with the shape of the scuttle.

It's just a thought ......

Well done,Andy; I think you've nailed it! It looks like it's one of the 1906 Vanderbilt Cup cars; I was puzzled by the message in English on the garage door, but an American location would explain it.

What always amazes me is that the first Benz trundled along the road in 1886. Here we are 20 years later and we are looking at a scene not that much different in essence to a modern pit. A specialised racer as advanced as it can be, being stripped and worked on by mechanics in what has become a serious business. Just a few years later the Peugeots appeared with twin cam 4 valve per cylinder engines and that set the scene for years to come. Exactly the same with aircaft. From the Wright Flyer to a Fokker DVII in 14 years.

Not sure if the 3rd photo is a March Augusta, looks a bit big?

No, that's a Farina bodied Astura. Very similar to the farina Augustas, but that much bigger. Nothing like a March, as the caption suggests.
