Silverstone TT 1972

  Gardner leaning over his Camaro's engine room.
The Silverstone round always showed interesting cars from the domestic series - here the AMC Javelin of David Howes.
The Camaro of Thomas and Sanger - not eligible for ETCC points. The works Capri of Mass.
Two private Capri's: The Frami car for Franck/Hezemans... ... and the British car for Muir.
There were Escorts, of course: the British car of Brodie... ... and Crabtree.
A regular ETCC competitor: the Broadspeed BDA of de Uriarte/Barrios. The Bevan Imp of McGovern, British champion for years, finished 14th; the other car was on the reserve list.
The two Filipinetti Fiats.
The Swedish Topcon team brought three Juniors...
... just like the Autodelta team.
Shrewd Hezemans qualified the private Capri second behind the Camaro of Gardner, but ahead of the works and Gartlan cars!
From left to right: Glemser, Muir, Mass and Leech's Mustang.
The works Capri of Mass. The Broadspeed Escort receiving some last-minute treatment.
Heat 2 grid: Mass, heat 1 winner, on pole with Muir second. Hezemans started third (did Franck ever take the wheel at all this weekend?) with Walkinshaw next.
Row 3: de Uriarte, next the Camaro of Martin Thomas, Facetti on the right. One of the three Swedish Topcon Alfa Romeos.

A real fight between the Cologne works car and the privateer entry of Franck and 1972 journeyman Hezemans. They try to lap Mendham (Mini) and Coffey (Escort TC).
