Just a quick one, eventually got round to sorting out my vid from Monday's action. I missed the last few finals as had to leave to catch train and not my best ever work, but if anyone interested:

I swear you just sit on the infield getting closer to the action, Steve. Then just take a few pics for prosperity.
But you get us VIP parking at the foreign tracks, so I'm OK with it!

The plot thickens! Thanks for the clarification bigted, I was down the far end of the circuit during the final so my information was coming from the commentary. Perhaps I misunderstood what they were saying, but I'm certain they mentioned Heathcote in the holding area a couple of times!

I was down at Chessons and got the impression from the commentary that Heathcote was in the assembly area ready to go (and would have been out on the grid if Mark couldn't get the Xsara running).

Someone earlier in the thread was asked where some of the supercar drivers are, including myself.

Well my reason is pretty simple to be honest, as most people know i support both british and btrda championships and have done for many years, it's just a case of time (or lack of) for me.
As some of you will know i having a very young family these days, i'm crazy busy with work / travel and i had a lot date clashes with work commitments in 2017 with the British Championship. I'm also a privateer and do all my own work, so if if i don't have spare time to the work on the car, I can't go racing.

So basically I will still be racing in 2017, and still using the trusty Subaru, but from a championship point of view i will be mainly with the BTRDA this season, as there is only 3 race weekends in the year for my class, so i can fit that into the personal calendar. You will probably see me at the Croft for the British & Grand prix weekend too, and maybe another meeting later in the year + other motorsport activities / demo's etc.

Si

Nice to read you're still out this year Simon, shame we won't see you at Lydden!

Not my most successful outing, but a few pictures from Round 2...









...and a few more here:

(And yes, I missed all the cars on fire!)

Oliver Bennett's Fiesta was parked in the assembly area for a long time so I wonder if the commentators thoght his car was Nathan's waiting to go in the final? Both white supercars? Just a thought!

Good to have an update from you, Simon. All the very best for 2017 to you, both on and off the track.

Cheers, Steve

Interesting to see John Cross on the entry list - presumably that's the Seat that he was using on the circuits a few years ago?

The retros also looks to be a bit of an Escort fest! There are some rally cars in amongst that lot. No sign of any 6R4's or RS200's though

There is a retro demonstration shown on the timetable for Loheac, I wonder if the functioning Group B cars are being saved for that?

I noticed it was a bit of an Escort-fest as well: still, if we get to see a few of them sideways then it could be entertaining viewing!
