JARAMA CLASSIC (Peter Auto)
Calendar: Historic Racing

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......

Only in PA meetings, a 917 actually (or at least getting ready to) racing. Good to see the Ford F3L out again as well

Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
A pure gem. Is the 911 a 2.5 ST one? Your SLR boys are really fast, close to the best 911 (D Kholer may be?). Correction, the best 911 is 1'58"660 the SLR is 2'00"784. If my memory serves the best we did in qualy was 1'59"2 or 59"4 with a 911 and new Dunlop's.

Fastest porker has two pro drivers so should have a time penalty in the race.... I will be checking!

Have a look to the last additif, Mike, think they voided this part of their regulation. How was the scrutineering, they announced to be "féroces" months ago? so féroce or… féroce and a half?
May be you can sell some potatoes around !! I've been told they are rather chepo in Spain those days… Or try with strawberries!It looks like sand casting.

Mmm, Addetif 1 is very grey on the subject. Phrases such as 'Elite drivers' and 'at the organisers discretion'........ Could still happen- depends on a few things!

Scrutineering for us was fine. Picked up on not having a tow strap loop attached to the front eye, but that is how the SLR has always run! 5 minutes work with an old tie down strap from the truck and sorted..... So scruffy it even looks period.

All going well so far...as Gerard has rightly suggested, they were being very thorough at scrutineering....a very good thing if you ask me!

In the cool of early morning free practice we managed to get the 356 down to a 2.02' but sadly could not repeat the feat in the heat of Quali...our little engine does go noticeably better in the cool!

Race tomorrow is likely to be hot again, 5-7pm,so we need to take some brave pills to keep some of the 911s honest!

The usual eclectic mix of race cars, 917, Bugattis, lotus, jags, alphas....a petrolheads dream!

Roll on race day!

Wish you all the best meaning good results of course and fun too.
Its not a secret to tell you the nickname of the respectable scrutineer in chief, we call him Jacques de Polyester (I call him Maître Jacques). This gentleman is a former teacher in mechanic school. He knows a lot about cheating. Him and his pupils built so perfect a FF Rondeau replica that he was granted a blank chassis plate by Rondeau himself! And he didn't use a 3D machine either half potato!!!

Mike may be you're in trouble with the colors there… Grey? No sir! Its written black on white. If you re-read the additif you'll see that it seems that no one have foreseen the case that 2 Elite drivers could share the same car… In this case they can't drive 100% of the race!

If it is ok with you Gerard, I won't use his nick name until after he has passed our car at scrutineering!!!

Will its fine, he has a lot of humor. And he does know about his nickname! If you meet him personally you can tell him from France that your 356 is not a Ghia model. From a guy deeply involved in 911 racing and currently entering a black Capri. At the end of 2015 he suspended for a while my HTP process because of a wing emblem.
I started racing in the mid '70s and I do know him an have a lot of respect for his person and knowledge. Did you have any trouble with your additional driver cooling system? You can check with him the FF Rondeau story too!

From the days when turbo installations were somewhat agricultural in comparison to what we see now (apologies orientation wrong!)-

[Mike, do you know the difference between a red flag and la moooletta? In one case you must stop. In the other you've better run fast !
