The Adelphi – Bill Brandt, 1939
Niki Lauda and David Purley chat in the rain at Zolder, in 1977.
Note the differing styles of quilted vinyl anorak, as no longer worn by racing drivers.
I assume this picture goes with the following story from “The Lost Generation”
His [Purley’s] most memorable performance came in the rain-spoiled Belgian Grand Prix at Zolder. Conditions were very poor to begin with, but gradually the track began to dry. The hard-charging former paratrooper moved steadily up the field, from an excellent 13th on the grid to 7th place until the leaders began pitting. As this happened he actually found himself in the lead for one glorious lap. Inevitably he fell back, as he, too, stopped and the faster combinations got back into their stride, and there was an amusing post-race incident after he had upset World Champion Niki Lauda after holding off the Austrian’s Ferrari for a while. Niki remonstrated a little too much with him about “rabbit” backmarkers, finally prompting an increasingly bored Purley to retort, “I was leading at the time, and if you wag that finger at me again, I’m going to stick it up your arse!”
