Maybe the picture of DSJ on a cycle was in Zandvoort (look at the registration of the BMW). I have a photo of him at Zandvoort in 1975 holding his cycle whilst talking with Max Moseley. Another pointer to Zandvoort is the check tabards worn by the two people standing next to the van – aren’t they Dutch marshals’ jackets of the era?
I was at Zandvoort as crew for the Motor Race Rescue Unit. It was very civilised for us packed lunch and soft drinks provided each day, and when I had the temerity to ask where I would be able to obtain practice times, we were put on the distribution list. Would this have happened at Silverstone or Brands Hatch?
I am yours etc,
