There are few historic racers more iconic than the D-Type Jaguar and the Mercedes 300SLR and this picture of the two going at full pelt (presumably at Le Mans in 1955?) just oozes that early sports car cool. Look at those guys standing right by the side of the road in the days before crash barriers. Later on in the same race this would prove to be fatal. 

Another picture included in the auction shows the racing legend Jim Clark getting into an Aston Martin DB4 Zagato, possibly running to the car at the start of the race. In all, these two pictures show the exiting world of racing which has sadly long since been lost. 

The pictures are heading for auction at Historics at Brooklands.
