This morning I had a quick look at this image I took over the weekend at Brands Hatch, and saw the reflection just above the Autocar sticker looks very much like a white faced man in an open faced crash helmet.
I did a little investigation into fatalities at the circuit and found amoungst the 50 names that came up was one that may be a relative!

Norman Glanville Parker died at the circuit in 1960.

Glanville isn't a very common surname (more common than Kanssen) and my Family tree links to their's about 5 generations back.

That is a little spooky

I assume there was nothing there to cause a reflection, such as a poster etc etc
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Yes quite a spooky shot. And looking at that list of fatalities makes you realise how dangerous motor sport is - and if ever you are driving/riding around that Paddock Hill bend take extra care

Nothing that I'd expect to reflect quite like that.
It could be the sky reflecting off the flared wheel arch could make the helmet (with the safety barrier giving the trim).
There was a big yellow (Dunlop?) sign in the area but none o the features look right for that.
I suppose the road surface could reflect so as to look white, but I don't think there were any ripples in the door skin...
