Bet that was a hard selection decision!

To be precise he is entered in a Jag XJR-9 for the 'stand alone' Group C race, and not The Classic itself........ That will have made it easier, but I wonder if he will be exempted from the regulation regarding qualifying races? Quote- "Drivers must have taken part in two qualifying heats before racing in Le Mans Classic (6-8 July 2018)."

I'm guessing the car is Jaguar Heritage's drop dead gorgeous Silk Cut version. Very cool...

I'd like to See Gareth drive all three Talbots in one race, I've seen people do two . . . . but three would be impressive.

Well now to put teams together

Only doing four this year based on four G1 Talbots so if anyone wants to join us just ask

We have won the team prize a few times.

Obviously Bill/Will are in but anyone else?

Lots of the normal entries missing this year

Interesting if they can put a full grid of Group C cars together this time but itís only the warm up race before the real thing!

Probably about fifteen finishers after an hours racing!

Having had a cursory glance through the entries, thus far, Would it be fair to say a lot of French entries? and not necessarily actual LeMans cars ( Sunbeam Alpine was first I noticed )

Still the best old banger race though, If I can get visa clearance from the Management I may head down for the weekend.

I have had e mail saying we are on reserve list. Fingers crossed as for sure I think this is the best event I have raced at.
