Reg Parnell Racing Memorabilia
Vintage 1951 Photograph of Reg Parnell on Ferrari 375 Thinwall Special at the Goodwood Trophy 1951.
This is a good size vintage photo of Reg Parnell in the Ferrari 375 Thinwall Special prior to the 1951 Goodwood Trophy at Goodwood race track in the UK.
Reg would finish the race in second place behind Nino Farina on Alfa Romeo 158.
The photo measures some 8 x 6 inches or 20 x 15 cm and is in good condition (bar a slightly bent corner in the extreme lower right edge), there are a few slight marks from the original negative that had suffered from the film transporting mechanism.
It is also a big enlargement from part of the negative so it is a bit grainy but nevertheless a great vintage print from a by-gone era.
Only 1 available of course.

These armbands (or "brassard" in French) could be regarded as the entry ticket to the pits, paddock etc. It was to be worn at all times (except when a driver was actually in the car on the track) and the different colors and text would indicate the "status" of the bearer.
At the 1968 Monaco grand Prix, Piers drove the Reg Parnell Racing entered BRM P126 with race number 16 which he qualified in 11th spot, a good 2.4 seconds behind pole sitter Graham Hill.
In the race he would retire in lap 12 with chassis problems.
