Andy, if this can give you some more motivation, this is from our Salooncar grid at Charade this year:

Hope you're much impressed! Yes its from a Seven and yes the white car is a 996 Cup…

Don't know what the entry fees are going to be for this meeting for CSCC yet - I'd like to do it just for the experience, but the pension only stretches so far



A mate of mine who is defecting from the BMW Compact Cup to come race his Alfa Romeo Junior Z in the Swinging Sixties is really keen to do Le Mans, though, so I'll probably have to come along if only to support him

I like this car too. Is it a 1300 or a 1600, the bodies are slightly different if I remember well. I think we had only the small displacement imported here and in only few were seen on the road.
Strange enough a 26R owner well known by Mike has a 1600…

Running it as a 1300 Junior Z, I believe. He's still working on completing it - keeps dropping hints about me going to sort the wiring

Just checked with Asavé boss, some places still available for Brits chaps, race is one hour but I find the entry fee sky high… Depending on what will be the GBP/€ rate at this time.

If you accept a "just for fun" invitation, may be we can do something but it will probably be with a Mazda. Lets try to adjust our schedules and why not a tenths team? Not many, only the best!

Ha, voilà qui me fait grand plaisir! No worry its an invitation meaning if you're on the circuit just join.
Not realistic to think about bringing the Capri and the Mazda. Had a look to lap times, a 130 hp MX on road Avons at 45€ each is as fast as a good french MG B on race tires.
Wont be hard to have 145 hp just adjusting the intake. If you have any suggestion, please do!
Suspensions, brakes, lsd, gearbox are really good, only the engine is a pain.
Designed for a motorcycle and restricted, I'd say few power and almost no torque. In principle very reliable at this stage of tune.

Depending on the situation at this moment - probably they will need entries - we could have the choice either two short races or one one hour.

Have to do something with the seat, 1,91 m for me…

There will be a tomorrow. Historic racing will survive. Soyons fous, faisons des projets d'avenir!

David just hope it will be a cold and rainy weekend. The chassis is really well balanced. By the way, hope you accept some toe-in at front… May be we can adjust the lsd too its a Kaaz…

One more precision… in a french car, what you find on your left hand is not the gear stick, its the door handle!
Anyone in touch with the owner of a heavily modified blue Capri posting here a while ago and working at Heathrow? He could join the happy pack of Salooncars, our version of Modsports. Many others too.

Ha, left hand drive is good for me, my motorhome is LHD and I've done 50k miles in 5 years in it. Also raced a LHD FIA Anglia at Mallory Park a few years ago, made the impolite mistake of being quicker than the owner, most embarassing!

The Bugatti is a quite conventional track. May be you'll have to adjust your trajectories to a non single seater, as on usual. In case of rain, two places are really slippery, the "garage vert" a long double right and the "chemin aux boeufs" which is what we call a pif-paf or chicane, meaning a very tight left-right. In spite of a very long climbing straight which is famous, in case of rain a small displacement engined car can surprise the big dogs.
Do you know it already or sim experienced it may be?
I prefer RHD cars but with the gearstick on the right…
