Well, eventful for box 19 so far. Arrived from Ricard with two dead cars, so was working from moment of arrival. The SLR has had engine out to replace flywheel spigot, and that’s proved successful. The B19 is not raceable so the owner has had his B8 rushed out from UK to replace it.... That has qualified OK.

The SLR I’m co driving (all 3 are here ) was flying during Thursday test, but died at the end of free practice yesterday. Diagnosis was that timing had slipped, and as both engine failures this season were down to dizzy problems I had the whole drive out to check. No faults found so reassembled and re timed. Gave it a razz down the local roads and felt OK, so fingers crossed for qualifying later today. Worrying when no obvious reasons for something.....

Good stuff- weather fab, all fellow racers smiling and chilled, and had two superb evening meals without even venturing to the seafood places on the beach! Just to make Delta jealous- excellent pizza last night, followed by best ice cream in the Algarve and free limoncello’s at the end........
