Angouleme Circuit des Remparts Sept 2009

Having just sent our entries in for the Warwick and the Peerless for this fantastic event (70th anniversary) We will be crossing our fingers. This is because the ICR who organise the event have told me that they have already filled up one grid for GT GTS and GTP cars, eligibility years 1951-1976 (Although in previous years saloon cars have been successfully entered.) They are now looking to fill up another grid of 16 cars. With our two entries they need another ten. The race is run around the town and is quite unique, challenging and great fun. Further info from their website www.circuit-des-remparts.com or pm me and I'll give you more details. The town is medieval with loads of character, cobbled streets, squares with cafes and good restaurants. Also full of classic cars that weekend! So come on everyone, put in your entry and join us!

Angouleme

Just to add, picture on previous post is Ian racing the Peerless there last year. Date for this year is Sunday Sept. 20th but stuff going on from Friday. Cars should have HTPs.

This is my home race. Angouleme is a truly wonderful weekend. I have driven it twice, once in a single seater and once in the Lotus Elite. It is just one of those race meetings in which you have to compete before you die! Last year someone gave a demonstration in an F1 Tyrell. He was having such a wonderful time that he ignored the chequered flag. The organisers could only get him to stop by standing in the middle of the road! Have no doubts you absolutely must come.

So that would mean having to spend a week in France before driving up to Spa,worth a thought or two!

Les Remparts

Go for it Terry, you would really love it, as the good Compte says you really have to do Angouleme before you die. Apart from the amazing race, the ambience, relaxed atmosphere and beautiful surroundings, to say nothing about the French cuisine et vin are outstanding. The whole town comes to a halt. Barriers and stands are erected across roads in the middle of Saturaday night so that the immense number of spectators are able to view the race and the entente cordiale is brilliant. Anyone interested put "TVR Grantura Angouleme or Circuit des Remparts" into "you tube" sit back and enjoy!!

Hi Celia,

Can't join you this year but it's on my list of races to do and look forward to seeing it from the driving seat of my own TVR in due course!

Good to see you and Ian at Oulton last weekend.

Best of luck in stumping up the support for a second grid. The event looks fantastic.

Cheers

Dave

Hi Dave,
Good to see you at Oulton also, you would have a great drive at Angouleme in the TVR. The u-tube film is from Phils' TVR and he usually does well there. Ideal car for the circuit. Pity the GT6 isn't appdx k, it would be ideal!
Cheers Celia

Having seen the video before before [that was one of the reasons I have always had this event on my list] I had to watch it again,still not sure whether the TVR driver say's "Faster" to the Lotus driver though.

It seems incredibly tight, I'd imagine first and second in a bigger GT, with almost no straight at all.

Without doubt this was one of the best weekends racing the Delta team participated in. And the Compte lets me sleep in his barn. He owns the most wonderful house there.

Angouleme 2009

Hi Sam, Yes there was a conclusion, fantastic weekend, both cars racing, Ian came 4th in the Warwick, 1st on Dunlop Historic racing tyres (lapped the next on same tyres!) I came 10th after losing my brakes (quite hairy on that circuit) and getting fuel evaporation as a result of a VERY hot engine! It is the race to do there is no doubt about that, what an experience. Entry forms already out for this year. If you have a look at this
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hajT1010O0 it will show you Ian doing a bit of "slipping up the inside" past a gesticulating Sprite driver and an unaware Lotus!

Brilliant! obviously a gallic driver! (because it was a left hand drive car of course) not a place to race with no brakes I would have thought!! It does look mega though.
