    Found these great photos showing the head of Heuer's timing business Jean Campiche hard at work at various Grand Prix in the 1970s operating the Heuer timing equipment. First the shots from the 1970s and then followed by photos of the equipment taken in the last couple of years.

    How cool is that metal suitcase?!?
