Parting shot

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the USAC IndyCar championship’s UK double-header, at Silverstone and Brands Hatch. AJ Foyt pits to refuel his trusty Coyote en route to winning the first of the two races. Pit safety apparel has evolved slightly over the subsequent four decades… Rick Mears finished second for Penske, but six days later won  in Kent (where Foyt finished fourth).
