A bit late, but it was good to see the very few people I managed to see in the short time I had. Loved Iain's face when he spotted me standing in front of him.
I made a one off appearance at Spa, as I only marshal in the UK. I'm not very well liked at Spa anymore, wonder why?
It was a strange event compared to other years, but I guess we can count ourselves lucky it happened after all.

I'll try to be on here a bit more often.

Great result Iain, looking forward to next year? Gravel traps are allegedly being Re introduced and maybe Eau Rouge to LeRadilion will be remade into something more remenisant to the past layout.
Track should also be sorted a third of the way down the approach to Eau Rouge to deal with the subsidence from the flooding in July. Lots of changes going on at present, all around the place.

Should have been easy to take the GT40 Iain. Apparently it lost 4th gear early in the race! Link to 1 lap in car video below.

Thank you for the photos Guus. The pit stop picture shows owner starting to change OSR wheel. I was in the car all set to go and do last stint when young Sam Binfield spotted the tyre was flat.
BTW we also had a bad vibration for the last hour. Lucky to finish as the car is on the ramp with a serious Diff problem.

Will, Grant - the next get together of the CDMC takes place on Thursday 2 December in the Jolly Potters pub in Castle Donington (opposite the Catholic Church if you kno the area).
You will be welcome. I will be there from about 20:00.

If approaching from the North it's at the top of Big Hill. Where the Dodgems and the Big Wheel are located during the annual Wakes Fair.

It's been confirmed that Eau Rouge to Radillon is in for some alterations. The first section will be more of a left curve so that the right clip point will alter before the crest. More akin to the 90s layout. Plenty of grass runoff to the righ side though. Also various changes all around the circuit aimed at easier access for spectators.lots of improvements to stands even one massive one.
