That is a very fast Sierra....

Bit too fast for my liking 😉

The Brancatelli car is entered in ST i see so be good if it also did TCC.

Then there's Local man Paul Linfoot?

His RS1800 wasn't exactly slow! (I see entered in TCC by current owner- usually does Peter Auto) And Mr Wright is an extremely handy peddler....

Yes. Maybe the change in regs came a bit late.

Ed Simpson, yes! Car looked quite nice but he had to run fairly low boost iirc.

Paul Linfoot has the black/luminous yellow LUI Eggenberger car that Karl Jones has been thrilled to share a couple of times? I think he has another one as well!

Paul has often urged the MRL to open up to allow the Sierra and was disappointed when M3's got the nod but not the Ford!!

Andy Kirkley would be another likely entrant but i'm taking this into specific series tertitory now rather than the Gold Cup!!!

Alfaholic should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
There was a Mitsubishi Starion Ralliart running with the CTCRC in the hands on Mark Osborne a few years ago.

Admittedly, i can see now why Juniors race on Monday to allow time time to go ip from Oulton. A movr that did not sit well with the racers not doing Goodwood.

Also the Zandvoort event hurts.

In a way a shame

Junior enrty was weak last yesr for mainly the same reasons.

Ah, I can certainly picture the car now!

Rudolf, FJ small grid for several valid reasons, but as you say, an unfortunate result of a packed calendar.

Neil Philpotts was a long time Starion racer . The last post on his facebook page mentions that he was starting to prepare a new car , but that was 2014 .

Thanks for answering my Formula Junior query Rudolf . Do I remember seeing you at Thruxton circa 2004 racing an early Aston Martin GP car ?

I'm sure Baub will think it's directed at him.

Yes, apologies, I posted something that already been covered because I seem to have read page 1 and 3 and completely failed to see page 2.

It was early!

I would likely have entered the Gemini if the FJ race had been over the weekend, as I am there with the TR5. I would also have entered if it had been a Front-engine only race (whichever day that had been - I love the Front-engine only races!).

Mind you, having been rudely assaulted in Race 1 at the Classic, the Gemini chassis needs repairing, ( i was able to enjoy Race 2 after the chaps manage to 'adjust' out the derangement - on a purely temporary basis!) so if I'd entered it for Oulton, I guess I might well have been withdrawing about now!

C'est la motorracing!

yes, that was me in the 1925 16 valve Bamford & Martin car, my early days in Historic Racing
charming car, but dog slow in comparision to Bentleys and 2 litre fake Aston Martin specials
that was when the rot had set into pre AMOC racing and it had losts its innocence

sold it in 2006
