Sadly we've had to withdraw our SLR from the 2 hour GTSCC race today, which is a great shame as it's not often all 3 are on track together.

The ignition timing slipped again during qualifying, and after having all the dizzy drive out again, sending pics to the engine builder, plus showing the parts to various knowledgeable people present in the paddock, it was decided that the risk of a third engine failure was too great.

On a positive note, the weather is still great, we had another excellent supper (followed by gelato from the nearby place) last night, and the event is confirmed for the 3rd weekend in October next year. That is the weekend before Peter Auto go to Imola, so looks like it will be very difficult to truck from Portimao to Italy in the timescale available. Will need some careful planning for those wanting to race at both......

Now bracing myself for the 3 day drive up to Caen to get home- necessary as Britney ferries are once again mucking freight customers about by refusing to confirm bookings on the Bilbao route. No doubt hoping to fill the boat with more lucrative tourist bookings- ignoring the fact that freight keeps them going the rest of the year.......
