    That R8 in top left corner is like seeing a ghost of a car that no longer exists.
    A Gulf-liveried R8 bearing the racing number 4 can only be the R8 campaigned by Stefan Johansson in 2001. But that particular chassis started out as an Audi factory car and famously won at Adelaide in a spectacular crocodile livery in 2000, and the car was restored to that crocodile livery when it was retired from active service. I was of the belief that it still looked like this today.



    I guess it was sold on to somebody partial to Gulf colors. (There's an allegory about fossil fuel companies and species extinction in here somewhere).


    The Longtail pictured in the bottom left was supposed to race at Le Mans 1997, but caught fire during qualifying. I have a DVD with a preview of that race in which Tom Kristensen - who raced and won his first Le Mans that year as an emergency replacement for Davy Jones, who'd injured his neck - tells about flying to Austria on Reinhold Joest's private jet to complete a Formula 2 test and flying back to Le Mans the same evening and seeing the flames from the air.

    The #11 car in the middle is the 1975 Gulf-Mirage GR8. Arguably one of the least recognized Le Mans winners in history - despite the fact that it was driven by Jacky Ickx and Derek Bell. It was powered by the Cosworth DFV engine, which won 12 Formula 1 World Championships in the 14-year period between 1968 and 1982.
