ERA E-Type GP2

Motor racing is best enjoyed on a sunny day, or at least one that is dry, and the Richard Seaman Memorial Trophies meeting in August 1992 at Oulton Park took place on a day that was mostly sunny although it did have spells of rain. Here's a photograph taken in the paddock during one of those rainy periods.
It's the 1938 ERA E-Type GP2, owned at that time by Gordon Chapman, which took part in the first of the Richard Seaman Memorial Trophies races that day, the one for Pre-war Historic Racing Cars (the other one is for Vintage Racing Cars). It was driven in that race, and in the later Allcomers Invitation Race, by Bill Morris. I was intrigued by the reflection in the puddle of water, and below is what the reflection looks like if you turn the picture upside-down.
