Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Weather forecast in your area looks rather good for Sat and Sunday, ugly on Friday. The HTC grid looks good and will probably end with 36 entries.
Not really easy to see Magny entries (at least for French people). Only had a look to the racing fuels prices…*

Seems that AlKamel recently introduced the maximum top speed to their data. If my understanding is good it gives: best 911: 209 kph, the 356: 199 kph and the SLR: 187 kph. 222 for a good Capri RS, some must be spannering to adjust the final ratio may be (Dance's Capri is 202 kph in the straight but much faster on one lap).

Not certain but think the Morgan was class P3 in qually. Well aware of how hard the circuit is on brakes, and the likelihood of it being hot, we were concentrating on finding a good brake balance for the 2hr race, rather than going for a special lap. The Porsche 904 is always going to be ahead- as it was in period! Comes down to reliability..... The Family Stephens 356 was going well and sounding very loud as usual, so hope they get a trouble free race as well.

On Thursday Monza proved true to it's reputation, with a monumental thunderstorm during the afternoon, including hail, that flooded most of the paddock and some of the garages! Despite the sky looking very ominous to the North yesterday, it stayed dry, so fingers crossed same today.

Not on track until late morning so time for a pilgrimage to the old banking....

BTW Gerard, I don't know where the 'speed trap' is on the straight, but at other circuits the measurement can be extremely unreliable due to the position. On board data much more interesting- when I raced the red SLR here in 2013 the VBox data recorded 137 mph at 7.3k........

Rain between showers at Magny, 14 HF2 and 22 cars for the Masters grid.

Mike, you should warn your drivers. In Italy some road signs dont mean the temperature but the speed limit.
Generally, it is expressed in kilometers per hour……… not miles !! And this works in their pit lanes too.

What a breath taking last lap! Please Mike, your version? Seems Biehler's 911was out of shape at the end of the race but he didn't get any speed ticket.

There's a lot to tell about our race Gerard, and other 'goings on', but will have to wait a bit! Just off to the Musee Alfa Romeo.....

After all that, the Morgan got a class P3, as the 904 was moved into a different class- or something. We never quite understand how it works.....

One of the unsavoury aspects of a race meeting or indeed other large events reared its head on Friday- several trucks behind the boxes being rifled and money, passports, possessions stolen. The miscreant(s) made off in a hire car they found the keys for! Yesterday an individual identified as having been seen acting suspiciously during that was caught by a lady team member in the back of another truck, going through a kit bag. He was 'detained' by her and other team members until security arrived, then the police. Hope he wasn't treated too gently.......

Sad remake of an italian job then but this can happen anywhere. Your ladies are tough, burglars are warned now!

As to the 904, its rather strange to change its class or category after a race and during the season. But as already said, its up to any organisation.
Your team was probably pleased to take over a 911 inside the parabolica few yards before the checkered flag!

'Never give up' is the motto....

Funny that of all the trailers the miscreant was discovered in, he picked the one belonging to people you wouldn't want to mess with!

Mike, some troubles with the B19 it seems? Having a look to the classifications, the rate of dnf is higher than on other circuits. The two long straights may be.

Yes, fuel pressure issues, possibly due to the extreme temperature. Shame as we could have had a good result......

Just loaded up ready to leave circuit- still scorchio at 8pm!

No wifi to do a lengthy post, but will just say it was a pleasure to be parked next to Swedish tenther Lars-Goran Sjoberg and Mrs Sjoberg for the weekend. Very nice neighbours, and hope the long trip home is / was OK! .

(Apologies for not being able to use the Swedish 'O', can't find it on iPad.....)

Mike,

Alt+0248 = ø

Alt+0216 = Ø

assuming that you have Alt on an Ipad.
