Well established, and popular. Usually coincides with school half term, and in previous years entry fees have included 5 star hotel accommodation overlooking the beach at Praia da Rocha...

Oh- and there are rumours that some much needed track resurfacing will have been done over the winter!

Includes Motor Racing Legends Grids, GTSCC, U2TC (x2) and local races.

356sc should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Mike, sorry to hear about the SLR, given the problems you have had with the engine, probably the right decision though!

Good luck to the other 10thers out today.

Sorry to read about your woes Mike. Hope it all gets sorted easily.

I would like to thank Delta for his efforts yesterday and Friday. We qualified third in class and 22 and finished third in class and 11th. I was hit for track limits so suffered a drive through. It was a bit unjustified because at the time I was trying to avoid being t boned by the winning BMW! Hey ho.

Had some excellent food in various fish restaurants in Praia du Rocha and now just heading for breakfast then a last day in the sunshine before the flight home.

Many thanks go to Ken and Tim Clarke for prepping the car, Pat for lap timing and organising and once again Delta for his sterling efforts.

We will be looking at handling for the car next year because it's sideways everywhere which is fun but a bit slow. Other than that all it needs is an engine refresh.

It was announced that MRL will have an HTCC grid at the Silverstone Classic so that's July sorted then.

That's 3!

I'm still trying to get home- we left under cover of darkness this morning as there's a truck ban in France today. Now 3.5hrs from Caen......

I'm sure you'll find some festivities or a fair to enjoy somewhere, Mike!

At least the sun is shining & it's a beautiful morning.

A Truck ban?

Given that much of the French road network seems to be far better than the UK network that seems a little ridiculous.

That said the concept of a total traffic ban on UK roads might be the only way to make them work effectively.

Mike, the ban won't apply to you "trucks servicing sporting events or trade fairs" are exempt although I think even they have to avoid certain routes around Paris. Bit late, sorry.

Quite right Colin, we weren’t bothered at all. Just us, fridges and a couple of media trucks on the road. Nice!

Now at Caen, enjoying a Leffe and the sun is shining....

Does not seem to be the sort of logic applied in the UK.
