Just back and i meen just back as pinion bearing on tow van started rumberling as i came off ferry at Calais last Tuesday evening.Arrived at track Thursday dinner time signed in and paid the 105 euros for lunch every day which was very nice as some of you know how much i enjoy my food. Only prob the resturant was only open from 11am to 3pm and as i dont like to eat to much before a race i did not get the best out of my 35 euros. The food was very good. Everyone was very nice at the track and very helpfull. Patrick and Louie are allways around to help and not stuck up in an office somewhere that you cant get too. Thanks guys.
I struggled to learn circuit only 3 laps in the rain in Lotus 17 and 6 laps in Galaxie.We qualafied P43 in Gentleman drivers and last or 7th in Yankee race.
Everyone met up for dinner Sat evening and i was sat next to a nice German chap and in typical Delta fashion asked him what he was doing and he explained he was organising the modern GT race. I then spent the next 30 mins telling him all about our Historic FF2000 races that we organise. At one point i am sure he said something about racing a Porsch 917 and it was'nt till Simon H then told me that it was Juergen Barth ive been talking to. "Muppett Rowley".After that i was up and dancing with a very nice Belly dancer who id met in the loo earlier If only i was 40 years younger.!!!.
Back to the track Sunday and we had finnished 22nd in the Gentleman drivers race and 4th in class Sat afternoon and i had a great Ding Dong battle with Brian Lambert in his MGB.Jims 1098 Lotus 17 is about the same in performance as the Elite and there was nothing in it performance wise but i think the Lotus being a lot lighter had the edge.We finnished 5th or second in class and last in Yankee race and i ran out of fuel again and had to wait untill the GT race had finnished for a tow back.Blooming boring watching this all singing and dancing Ferrari lap all the other cars in 30 min and missed getting on podium and collecting pot for 2nd.
Marcus Mussa was the star of Delta camp with a 4th and 5th in FJ race as well as fastest lap.It was good to get some track advice from someone who new what he was doing "thanks Marcus". I think i could of done with some tuition havent stuggled to learn a track so much since Porto last year.
Roger won 3 hour race and Simon H had a couple of wins as well i think that was it for 10 10 th drivers.
Next job was trying to get home, no one in the paddock was forth comming in towing Galaxie home so we filled up the truck with all heavy spares out of van and went for it. Lost 5th gear just past Dijon but made it to Calais on to ferry and arrived home at 3am.All in all we had a good time and nice to have all cars finnish i can now get dug in for winter with all the rebuilds then its an early spring as we head of to SA in Feb.

Good story as ever Iain, Jurgen Barth,well well! Did he appreciate who HE was talking to I wonder? He may have raced a 917, bet he doesn't know what a Spartan is though!

Hi Ian thanks for the report the usual mix of disaster and fun as always........

Thought about writing a book?

I am not doing the F3 championship next year Dad is building an Alexis ff1600 so I might do a few with that. If Rolty dosen't sell the cooper might get another go in that as well.

If you need a spare peddler let me know I am always intrested in driving other things and get your F3 out again.

Are you at the Hscc dd??

Will be at HSCC Dinner and Dance. Do you need a hand holding all the pots you have won.You need to post a pic sometime of your March as it looks fantastic in original colours. Monaco thread would be good might help you get an entry for 2010.

Wow driving that Galaxy must feel like piloting the moon....

Married life is much the same as single life.......pretty good I have been together with Heidi for 11 years so I didn't expect much to change.

I would love to drive some of the European tracks. Dad has a house near clermont ferrand we went up to Charade for a look what a circuit...!!!! have you ever driven it??

We are well chuffed with the March I will look at getting some photos on line.

Have you sorted that Lotus Junior out yet?

Laptimes and results

Hi here's the organisation of the race, to get the Paul Ricard results and all the laptimes normally, you can go on the website of Grand Prix de l'Age d'Or, http://www.gpao.fr

The meeting was nice as Mr Delta Motorsport described it, so we hope to see you in Dijon and Paul Ricard. I'll post the dates for the Dijon and Paul Ricard meetings for next year on the forum.

Bye.
