Purdy Car, Grainy Picture
Jim Clark, Lotus 49-Cosworth, Belgian Grand Prix, 1967. Clark finished 6h, one lap down, after leading, with mechanical
woes. Here he is just completing his braking and getting ready for turn-in into the La Source hairpin (note the angle of
his head and how the road is beginning to bank right at the right side of the picture). It's surprising how few shots
were taken from this superb angle at Old Spa. I don't know who the photographer was, but he got a good one.
