Graham Hill: motorsports greatest ever character

Graham Hill: motorsports greatest ever character and coolest dude, in a time when motorsport was interesting!

There was lots of laughter on the grid at Brands Hatch before the start of the 1974 British Grand Prix with a visit from comedian Eric Morecambe. Here he poses for the camera beside Graham Hill who was driving an Embassy Lola Ford. Graham qualified way down the grid in 22nd place and eventually finished 13th.
