This was at Le Mans around June 18th 1965. It looks to be a base camp for the Shelby/Ford teams.
The campers appear to be in the team colors, but they could just be rentals for the time they were on site.
Here's a few more views where we see the Ford GT40s 106 and 107.

Agreed. Looks like a Ford dealer. Whatever the award, it must have been worthy of the old man showing up.

Thanks for the link, Pete.  Regarding the Helms Award:  Helms Bakery was a thriving business headquartered on the border of Culver City and LA.

The original Helms building/factory is still there, on Venice Blvd, but is a multi-use facility now.

Helms Bakery trucks delivered directly to households in SoCal. External speaker playing a familiar jingle. They were the bakery trucks we ran after as kids to get a donut.

Thanks Tony for that pic, I like the differing expressions on the faces ! I believe that's Watkins Glen, '66 U.S. Grand Prix ?

In the French forum Autodiva many photos of CS :

An example among the last pictures posted  ;)

Isn’t the driver on the right know as “Mongoose “? I think he’s written recent articles for the Hemmings Magazine.
Nothing beats a classic!
