The P4 number 24 with the yellow stripe is the Ferrari of the "Équipe Nationale Belge" at Le Mans 1967. Your photo is almost certainly a fake...
Endurance racing of the sixties is what hooked me to motor racing. I hesitated between posting only Ferrari P4 (THE racing car, if you ask me) under different numbers (but the range of numbers is not that large, if you exclude historical races and shows to keep only pics of actual races) or a lot of John Surtees' cars...

Well, unlike your day (Ha Ha), I'll stick to number 23 because... It's the Year of the Pig, and we can't miss the fastest piggy on earth.

Politically correct image with both 22 and 23 numbers on it. Alfa Rome0 179, Brazilian GP 1980, Giacomelli and Depailler. For the time, cars had typical "no front wing" appearances because of the high speed track in the era of ground effect downforce.

March 17 is the Australian GP. So as of February 22, there are 22 days till the Australian GP.

Given your local time zone it may be on the 17th or the 16th when the race is broadcast but I think for the purposes of this thread we might as well all agree that 3/17/2019 is the day of the first GP.

Indeed! It had me wondering where it was exactly, not recognizing that wall. But it is indeed the old station hairpin. It also had me admiring the work of the panel beaters who made such lovely bodywork.

Been waiting for this one so excuse this little indulgence. Yes it's more a 12 than a 21 but you get that.

2nd October 1977 was the day I caught the motor racing bug & this shot & footage is the reason. 1977 Hardie Ferodo 1000. I was 6 at the time.

2 beautiful, brutal 351cu cleveland V8 Ford Falcon XC's, the #1 of Allan Moffat & Jacky Ickx, & the #2 of Colin Bond & Alan Hamilton in a formation finish after 1000 km.

Bit of a vid of the last lap.



And just because I love the car so much, a bonus shot of a 77 XC Cobra

19... Another oldie. Maserati 250 F of the Team Louis Rosier (the man who won Le Mans driving all the time but half an hour). Not sure this is a genuine colour photo - rather a coloured black and white - the blue of the car being more Scottish than French.

What a glorious picture... I can fully understand the expression on the face of the nearest mechanic.
This is the kind of photograph to have a blow-up of. Simply gorgeous.
