JARAMA CLASSIC (Peter Auto)
Calendar: Historic Racing
Mike Bell
Race Official
 
31 Mar 2017 to 2 Apr 2017 05:00 to 18:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Location: Jarama Circuit, Madrid

2nd time visit by Peter Auto to central Spain in late March. Don't get excited by thoughts of winter sun and warmth, in 2016 there was ice on the cars first thing, and trucks held up by snow en route.....

Great circuit and great event though!

In 2017 the event will host a race for Pre 1939 cars. Unfortunately for some it clashes with the Flying Scotsman Rally......

I thought the entries looked low in all the series, hopefully more will sign up before we get there!

Sure, its often the case. Not a piece of case to build a business plan in those circumstances though. You series (Sixties if I'm right) is still doing great. Let see how many will join the Iberian series.

I guess we have been spoilt over the last couple of years, as the 60s endurance grid has normally been sixty plus cars!

Will be interesting to see the numbers in Masters grids at Barcelona the weekend after. PA have struggled before with the first meeting of the season- Vallelunga was not well supported in 2015, and Jarama was very cold last year!

During many years the VdeV season use to start at Jarama and end at Estoril. Jarama has always been successful whatever the weather forecast. Peter is experiencing new series and have a "clean up" inside some others such like the HTC (Group1 not really welcome which is easy to understand), chasing the ugly cheaters from their wonderful world. They probably represent one side of the "real" historic racing, preserving the future of yesterday. Thanks to them for that.

Organising a Pre War Sports car race the same weekend as the years major Pre War rally ,Flying Scotsman,seems unfortunate.

Many of drivers who would have been in Madrid will be heading towards Gleneagles.

Should have left it at Dijon where they would have had a full grid it being a non LMC year.

Yes, certainly agree with that. The organiser does seem to be rather oblivious to other / clashing events, and on this occasion the alternative is both popular and well supported.....

Certainly right Mike but the Jarama grids are minimum at the level they reached last year if not higher. Impossible to see how many will join the Iberian series.
I never drove a pre-war car but knowing well Jarama I think its more demanding than Dijon for instance as far as brakes are concerned.

Well, we're all on schedule for back to back 40min free practices this morning, followed by back to back qualifying sessions at the end of the day....

Some high cloud dropped the temp a bit yesterday but was still mid to high teens. Then I found out it was 21 C back home.... But instead of the local buzzards that fascinate me on occasions in Norfolk as they circle in the thermals, here there were Vultures! I'm trying not to read too much into it......

Cloud did turn to little rain during the (much warmer) night, but now that has gone we should be back to dry and sunny. Yippee!

Midget you have a live timing system through the website. Very nice to follow a race. The SLR looks already very fast during free practice 2'01"6. Best 911 2 litre did 1'58"8 which is just fantastic. The 356 did 2'02"8, very fast too. My friend with the pink 'Stang did only 2"14 meaning troubles as we made a bet during winter around 1"58/ 1'59. The battle in HTC series started on a high level, Ben Gill the best and Sean Brown 6th at the mo.

If i'm right best last year's lap times were: best 911: 2'00"3; 356: 2'02" and SLR 2'01"2. Cold track mostly dry. No MG B this year. No less than 43 cars listed in the Iberian endurance series.
