Peter Auto 2nd meeting of the season. Includes their new (and controversial in some quarters) Euro F2 races as well as normal grids.

Expect also the Touring car race to be into the night on Saturday. Nice.

Yes, the circuit isn't as well lit as Le Mans! The SLR has done Spa 6 so has extra lighting available.

The 2 Touring car races are early evening and 2300hrs from memory, which will provide a challenge for anyone suffering problems in the first.....

Big grids though (except new F2 looking poor)- and still over a month to go!

Pray the weather Gods give us Jarama weather or better, otherwise the long days are going to be hard work.....

Mmm, the possibility of this turning into a 'long weekend' is getting nearer the truth, as will be there a day earlier than normal to do some testing......

Please please may it not be wet and cold......

Two Aussies in the HTC field, I hope they go well.

Group A entry is thin.

Yes, good luck to Adrian and Bill. 38 cars in total so far, but as you say, not many GpA. At least the CSLs are out in force, and outnumbering the Escorts! No Rovers for some reason......

Couple of quick 'Cologne' Capris, so possibly one of them to win the two races if they hold together!

From pics received this morning it's still work in progress! Sure it will be there, though. Maybe the builders will be looking slightly sleep derived.....

Am sure it will look drop dead gorgeous- and it's orange!
