Ford Escort at Oulton Park

A Ford Escort on the front row of the grid at Oulton Park.
I can't be sure until I find the program but from what I can see of the drivers helmet it seems to be in the colours of a certain sailing club.. That suggests that this could be the late, great Graham Hill.
I will confirm as soon as I can.

Sadly whilst I have found loads of programs from 1964-8 this is not one of them. It does date the photo to between those years though.

It is Graham Hill, He had pole for the 1968 BSCC race at the Oulton Park Gold Cup meet. He retired his Alan Mann Escort after accident damage.
