Maserati Presenta Silverstone 1948

Disappointingly short, I know.

How about if I throw in these images from the same race of Geoffrey Ansell and his ERA B-Type getting way too well acquainted with the hay bales on the 23rd lap?

With all the (deserved) talk of the dangers of early motor racing, it always surprises me to see images like this (and this) where, despite the terrors captured in the photograph, the driver was uninjured. Geoffrey walked away from this one nonetheless, thumbing his nose at the odds.

    To the best of my knowledge , R.E. Ansell drove ERA R9B. I have a recoding of him ascending Prescott that same year in this car. I have not previously seen him referred to as Geoffrey. MJ
