3.18 for that MGB is not bad . Me and Brian were doing 15/16's a couple of weeks ago and we were quickest MGB. The bus stop was quicker back then but still a good time.

Not only the bus stop was changed but they also replaced gravel with macadam along the dangerous curves like Pouhon which makes people dare more than they did before. A good move for safety, gravel has a tendency to make cars roll over.

Sorry to hear that delta. I saw an E Type rolled during the 6 hrs but can't remember the year. When we did it with a Spitfire I knew I couldn't go out fast because too tall for this car fitted with a hardtop. Scary.
There still are two bad guard rails, on outside of Blanchimont 2 and the one outside pitlane exit/ Raidillon.
As to the very good lap time you mentioned I think its hard to compare from one year to another. The region of 3'14 sounds really great for a B.

I think we need to get a petition going and get organizers to carry on calling the 1 hour race "barry's race". WDYT. You know them well Tel???

Bit like when circuits re-name corners, if you use the old name every one knows where you mean! To me (and I'm sure a lot of others), the '1 hr' is still 'Barry's Race', but official recognition would be a nice gesture....

Just heard from a mate that the Barry Sidery-Smith race is way over subscribed. Good to hear it.
