Cleaning up my hard-disk... and I found this one. Zandvoort, Winterraces, a few years ago. Sony A77 with Siggy Bigma 50-500mm (?) or Siggy 70-200mm with 1,4 TC.



The original is cropped about 25-30%.
Quit a lot of ALPHA and NEX gear, a nice collection of Sigma lenses, Dynax and M42 stuff, Gitzo's, Visico's and lots of video-equipment

Hi Remko,

Thanks for the additional information - I believe the Brands one (and, probably, the one you show) is 'The' original version; if there were others then these were 'continuations' (of the earliest form!) of the design. However, as far as this one is concerned, I understand it is THE original 'bread van':

Carrozieri Italiani - Breadvan

This is becoming increasingly common with these high end cars, especially if there is a whiff of history about them. There was a case a few years ago of, I believe, a Maserati f1 car from the 1950's suddenly appearing on the scene after once being thought lost. After much research, it was found that it was based purely on the chassis plate - everything else had been refabricated....

Best regards, Neil.

According Wiki, two additional 250 SWB's were converted, which explains the difference. Picture in the article is however similar to the one you photographed.

Wikipedia: 'Following the success of the Breadvan, two additional 250 GT SWB cars (S/N 2053 GT and 2735 GT) were modified for privateer drivers by Bizzarrini, Drogo, Neri and Bonacini, distinctively bodied with similar shapes.'

@Owenn01

Same or sister?


Peter Auto Spa Classic in 2016, thought it was a 1 off but now I see this one has a different mirror position. Hmmm, replica puzzle nowadays at Historic Racing. As long as they are 100% similar and been raced properly, no issue.

And yes; damage did result from this piece of 'close racing'.

Thanks, Remko! This is my local circuit of Brands Hatch down here in Kent; it used to be one of the two main GP circuits used for the British GP but the performance of modern F1 cars has overtaken it's capacity to really host that sort of meeting nowadays. It holds a lot of the major National series though and some Internationals - this was the Historic Masters series which travels over to Europe each year and is always a feast for the eyes (and ears...).

As for the Breadvan - that was the first time I'd seen it and given it's uniqueness (truly one of a kind) I was amazed at how hard the guy drove it! I suppose it's there to be driven as intended...

Thanks again and best regards, Neil.

2. Polished Performer



3. Powering Round Druids



4. Lola Leading Chevrons



5. McLaren CanAm 'Big Banger'



6. Number 71



"Racing With Castrol"


7. Exposed



Update more soon!

Best regards, Neil.

@Fred_S, I still love the optical viewfinder for this stuff. The lag in the EVF of the A99 is simply horendous when you try to pan at these speeds. Assume the A1 EVF will solve this but that's out of my budget. Perhaps in 7 or 8 years when 2nd hand prices are decent . Working with the A850 did confront me with how quick you get used to the speed of a new body, this feels soooo sloooow but still does a good job. Don't think I'll ever sell it.

Although lot's of R5 entries the most fun always comes from the classics. So a few picks of local hero's. First pic is actually a former WRC driver who turned classic. All shot with A850 and Tokina AT-X304 (my son nicked my A99 body ).


Nice pans of these awesome classic rally cars!

Nice set Neil. I particularly like the shot of three cars coming over the hill.
