Issue #17 of the AUTOMOBILSPORT magazine has a photo taken like 5 metres from the car. It is from the Klemantaski Collection

Ah!! Yes, I found an extremely blurry version of this online.

I might suggest Ben looks at the Klem collection, because he has many photos from this race.

No. Fairman shared this with Stirling Moss, so it might be a Stirling Moss book.

Anyway, Ben told me they found the photo in the Klemantaski collection so well done!!!

Double-entry:

http://www.the-fastlane.co.uk/cpdb/cras ... itid1=6039 <--- wrong, but pic is unwatermarked

http://www.the-fastlane.co.uk/cpdb/cras ... ditid1=241 <--- correct, but the pic is watermarked

IIRC, the confusion was down to Bira owning the car, but wasn't the one to crash it. There is probably a story about this in a biography I have of Bira, I'll see what's in it, sometime.

Is there something like an edit history?

While we can see the last person who edited an entry, is it possible to add a feature so we can see everyone who did it (and when)?

I think so, I would have to research how to do it though.

FYI, the image uploader is moving to The Fastlane server again. If you have it bookmarked, please delete it. The new one will go on the cpdb control panel later.

I hate to sound impatient, but is there any sort of progress report on the new image uploader?

@PTRACER
I uploaded it a while ago, or so I thought. Seems I forgot to rename the link properly!

Working now.

The other night I added this to the CPdB:

***WARNING - FATAL ACCIDENT***

http://the-fastlane.co.uk/cpdb/crashpho ... itid1=6403

***WARNING - FATAL ACCIDENT***

I'm not sure about the Series. Who can help me? It's quite hard to find Portuguese natives and I fear that the ones we have here are rather inactive. Sadly.
Is "Portuguese GT Rally Championship" the correct translation? Or which series is the correct one to choose? As for other events (e. g. Sebring 12 hours and many other rallies), the Rali de Viana do Castelo counted towards several different championships.
