Yimkin at Birkett 1959


While searching for something completely unrelated I recently came across an amazing collection of photographs curated by Simon Hendy. The photos catalogue his late fathers collection and span some incredible motorsport events. Hidden away in the catalogue is the above shot of Don Sim racing Yimkin WXH 280 which can be accessed from Simon's archive here.

As is so often the case the following week I was also kindly sent shots from the same event by Rupert Lloyd Thomas from Toronto. Both coming from the Revs Digital Library Amazing to see more shots of the original Yimkin in action and many thanks to Simon and Rupert for taking the time to share. For more detailed photos of the Revs shots please see here and here.

Those with an eye for detail will love to see the length and rake of the original nosecone!
