As the title says,

What are the cars, What year did they race and the drivers.

Is number 2 a Toyota?

I remember the livery rather than the shape. Google therefore tells me that it's a TOMs Toyota TS010 from '92.

Masanori Sekiya, J
Pierre-Henri Raphanel, F
Kenny Acheson, GB

92 was the last year of the WSC, I seem to remember the car at both Donnington and Silverstone - was there some *issing around with the rules that year leading to depleted grids?

Number 1 looks like a Ferrari 512

Good ones.  I'm completely lost, so I'm going to have several goes.

Is there a TWR theme, because I think the top one is a Nissan, didn't a semi works car run in red and I thought the second was the Joest TWR Porsche, but I think its just a 962 derivative, but the mudguard isn't wide enough, and I don't recognise the livery, although the "O" looks familiar, from the 91 Dutch Lolas

Both wrong so far.

Picture one is very much a one off version of an iconic car.

Picture two is of a car that was part of a team. The car was made in England but it was not for an English team.

Both raced at Le mans in the 80's

A full and complete answer,

The Nissan should be back at Le Mans this year for the classic. This is what it looks like now.

The Porsche was maybe the most extreme 935 produced, I am pretty sure it had a Lola T600 front end grafted on and was described by Atkin as a nighmare to drive. It was not a success.
