Your excellent February Ferrari edition mentions the works Ferraris coming to Oulton Park in 1968 for the Gold Cup. Attached is a photograph of the three Ferraris in the paddock. As you can see, it was literally a paddock in those days.
The Ferraris are those of Derek Bell (17), Jacky Ickx (9) and Chris Amon (8). Chris Amon’s was the only Ferrari to finish, second to Jackie Stewart’s Matra, setting the fastest lap of the race. The other two retired with engine maladies.
As you can see the paddock was a far cry from those of today, with free access for the spectators.
