Great photo! Seeing the sedan raking hay made me remember a good friend who used to rake hay with an enduro motorcycle......

these guys have just driven up a hill to reach sea level! I've seen photos of a heb touring the middle east with the same writing painted on its bonnet - meaning germany? - was this something travellers were advised to do?

Looks like Ohio plates on the Oval--possibly an autocross at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in the late 1950s.

Autocrosses were popular with the pilots and General Curtis Lemay (influential Air Force leader) was a big promoter of them, as most Air Force bases had vast areas of smooth concrete in front of the hangars. They remained popular until the early 1980s, when the safety and security bosses finally got their way and all but banned them.
