Guess I’m the only tenther heading to Italy for this, on a very busy weekend for race meetings! I would have enjoyed VSCC Silverstone Spring Start, HSCC 5 minutes from home, Jim Clark Memorial at Hockenheim, etc, etc.....

Anyway, we’re entered in Masters Gentleman Drivers 90 minute race, on a circuit neither of us has driven before. With the SLR engine still in pieces, the ‘6hr’ Morgan +4 has been pressed into service, but it’s a fabulous car and only loses out on top speed, so I’m far from unhappy. Will be useful as a test for Spa.....

Shame to be leaving the UK just as the weather is promised to be improving, but looks like Italy will be equally good, and the pizzas far superior!

Speedblood should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I'm going purely as a spectator (sadly...) but I'm sure there are far worse events to make a first time trip to Imola for

It's great to be corrected about being the only tenther who's going. Look forward to seeing you there, if you get a chance to say Hi!

It will be my second visit, but first actually racing. If all goes to plan will be back late October for the Peter Auto event. The place hasn't quite got the sense of history that Monza oozes, but isn't far off. The Senna memorial is a 'must do' visit, and is within the circuit itself. And all on the edge of Imola old town with some fantastic eating establishments...... Absolutely nothing not to like.

Sounds great Mike. What better way to spend a weekend than driving round a classic circuit and eating good food!!

More than 40 cars on Mike's grid, including Simon H (Shelby Daytona). Is there any chance to find live timing somewhere? Have fun and good pizzas!

Well James, the Ďeating good foodí has started before the Ďdriving round a classic circuití, but Iím not feeling at all guilty!

The advantage over Monza is that you can easily walk from the circuit to the old town centre, and our hotel isnít much further away. Spotted an awesome looking ice cream parlour for tomorrow eve. (Thatís for Iainís benefit.... )

The only reference to timing and results regarding Imola I have found is at ingimola.perugiatiming.com .

That would be great Mike . Good luck to you and Simon this weekend ! Does the meeting carry on until Monday ? Looking at the Imola website it seemed to indicate the meeting ended on Monday .

Possibly not totally accurate as it still seems to be still evolving, but thatís one of the joys of racing in Italy. Iíll tell you about scrutineering when get time.....

Thanks for the link Mike.
Haa racing in ItalyÖ*I remember when doing CER we were several Corvettes totally unable to achieve the full Monza race with only one tank of fuel. Refueling forbidden. But we could make a splash and dash protected byÖ vigili del fuoco! With no penalty given of course. Those people love cars and racing.

Checking the Imola website again , there appear to be three timetables , one for the racing , one for the parades/demonstrations ( Ferrari Clienti , Ferrari XX and Motor Legends ) and a third one for various book signings in the paddock attended by the great and the good of Italian motor racing ( Ricardo Patrese , Pierluigi Martini etc ) . The dates for the book signings are Saturday 21st April and Saturday 22nd April . No wonder I got confused ....
