Friday's Ferrari

I took this photograph in the pit lane at Silverstone during a practice session at the Coys International Historic Festival meeting in July 1999.
It's Christoph Stieger in Engelbert Stieger's 1972 Ferrari 312P, chassis number 0888, a car not listed in the programme of the event and Christoph Stieger was down to drive number 55, his Ferrari 250 GTO. The 312P was originally numbered 55 and on 26 June 2015 I showed a photograph of the car I had taken earlier in the day in the pit garage before it had been changed to 95. The car bears the names of Jackie Ickx and Brian Redman who had driven this car in one race in the 1972 World Sportscar Championship season, and in several races in the 1973 season.
