Pictured here is Seal, Innes Irelands black lab wearing one of his master's hats. Seal's involvement in motor sport was more as a companion than any direct involvement.
However he did have a narrow escape at Mallory Park where Innes had been asked by Mercedes Benz to demonstrate one of their 6.3 litre machines.
Innes unfortunately managed to roll it, writing the thing off. He climbed out of the wreck, retrieved a slightly shaken Seal, who had gone along for the ride along with his shotgun and left the circuit.
