 10x8 inch (250x200mm) photo from the Abecassis Family Collection showing the start of a sports car race at Goodwood with George Abecassis far right in HWM Jaguar XPE2 with Noel Cunningham-Reid in the sister car (HWM 1) two rows back.

Alongside on the front row are the Ecurie Ecosse D Type Jaguars   54 (MWS 302) of Alan Brown and  55 (MWS 303)  of Ron Flockhart, with Stirling Moss in the Gilby-entered Astonb Martin DB3S (9046 H) on the inside.

Behind Moss is Bob Berry in D Type 56 (OKV 3) and behind Flockhart is Duncan Hamilton in D Type 51(OKV 1) , Other cars featured are the D Type number 52  of Tony Dennis (in Duncan Hamilton's car YPC 614), the white DB3S of American driver Arthur Bryant (PLU 305), David Piper's C Type  number 98 (OVC 915) and Cliff Davis' Lotus X (NOY 1).

Moss won from Abecassis and Berry. Only 6 cars finished this 15 lap race. Poor Tony Dennis was killed in an accident on lap 13. One of the non startes was Bert Rogers who dies in an earlier race... Motor racing was different back then.
