Just received info from HMRN / Carol Spragg about next year and new '1000km' (4 races of 250km) for cars that ran in the World Sportscars Championships between 1964 and 1971. Does the Merlyn qualify for that, Simon?

Also of interest is the following paragraph from the email- "In order to stress our commitment to proper period specification, for 2011 we have engaged a permanent eligibility scrutineer, who will be at each meeting to inspect the cars and to help with any eligibility queries. If you are stripping your car over the winter, we ask for volunteers to invite our scrutineer to check the cars while engines are open and suspensions are clearly visible. We believe that this will help to assure other competitors that we are all committed to playing on a level field and help avoid."

Mike initially I thiought it would be but when I looked at the suggested list twin cam sports racers were conspicious by their absence...
I think this is for "posh" World Sports Cars....
Johngee to be honest if I was goingto do a 24 hour race I would do it in a modern car or possibly an old 911...

I think you had a typo and meant 60's E Type!

Relay is neatly done by Birkett and I think it would be a mistake to try and mirror it. A good friend of mine won a 24 hour race at Dijon (I think) a few years ago in his Cobra so historics can last 24 hours.

Am sure that Carol's series will include some real Twin Cams.

I will enter Pre 63 with two cars and sometimes they will be driven by 10/10ths stalwarts.

Will not go to Monza so that rules that out.

Some are on the same card as Pre War so thats convenient.

Sports Cars ,I don't know,HSCC comes first.

Looking for Crossle or Ginetta with BMW as B8 is CER/HSCC bound.

Can I answer any other questions?

John I am not sure Carol's series does include Merlyns' 23b's etc as they where not mentioned and to not include them is in itself a statement - personally I would only have been able to do the Donington round and I have committed to Snet 360 instead

Think only headline cars mentioned but she will have to fill grid with something and thats where twinks come in.

We are doing both Donington and a couple or three cars at Snet.

Will be doing more UK stuff than European.Only ferry bound races Spa,Dijon and Algarve.

Thats along with Tour Auto ,My Rally and Gstaad.

Tour Britannia and Silverstone HSCC and Festival.

Can't see us doing Goodwood!

And thats to many!Will have to cut now have written them down as forgot GTSCC.

No Woodcote this year and giving CER a miss.

I've just clicked on a reason why JDC and Legends have proposed the new Gp2 / GpA races- JDC have a GpA TWR Jag XJS and Gp2 Broadspeed XJ12 on their books!

Interesting, is that Jag XJS the one that was for sale with oversized engine (plus 5.3 as spare) on ebay recently?

The XJ12 would be a lovely period addition to such a series, I wouldn't imagine the owner would wish it to be driven to hard though!

Agreed, but one of the other XJ12s (Chris Scragg) is already racing with Masters declared as 1976 year. So as JDC are selling this other car declared as 1977, and would obviously be keen to see it racing in their own series (maybe with race support from them!), we could have 2 glorious Jags racing in different series because of one year. Does that make sense?
