Aston Martin DB3S

This is another of those old 1950s photographs, this time from the Daily Herald International Trophy meeting at Oulton Park on 18 August 1956.
Aston Martin entered a team of four of the DB3S models and No. 8 is the car with which Stirling Moss won the race, here being topped-up with fuel prior to the race. Immediately behind it (No. 10) is Reg Parnell's car which finished third, and beyond that No. 12 is the car with which Roy Salvadori finished fourth. To the right, seen through the bars of the gate is the No. 14 car of Tony Brooks which finished in second place. The car driven by Stirling Moss was chassis number DB3S/9, Parnell's was DB3S/7, Salvadori's DB3S/6, and that of Tony Brooks DB3S/8.
