I can't find Schnabel in any of the lists for the 68 European Championship.

Try Johann Schnabl, lots of results turn up, here's just one with the car number 16, 1969 ETCC Preis von Wien, Flugplatz Aspern, Vienna, Austria

Schnabl had his own race team which carried on into the 1970's with a Mini Cooper and a Ford Escort

Entry list from same race shows Harry Ratcliffe driving the VITA Mini (Car 45)

Well found!

I didn't look at the 69 list as I didn't think that Vita ran in 69, but they did do "selected races".

Thanks Kees, I always prefer pictures that depict people than cars. A picture of a car means very little to me, but the one above speaks like a book.
