If memory serves, the V12 crashed in the esses early in the race, Eric Thompson driving.
John King stands behind #22, Roy Parnell alongside... and we Dickie Green next to V12 car.
Above: The same DB3S/6 Coupe after rolling near it's sister car below.
Prince Bera (of Siam) was driving when accident took place, unhurt.
Above: The other DB3S/7 Coupe met the same fate as its sister car. (1954) Aero dynamics, or lack of, no doubt played a part in the wreck.
Graham Whitehead & Jimmy Stewart (Jackie's brother) were the drivers, Jimmy crashed near Mulsane, being thrown clear!
When Dickie went to collect the car the next day, someone had stolen all the Weber's during the night!
