Nearly there- time flys and need to get ferries booked....

Timetable and entry lists here- https://peterauto.peter.fr/en/evenem...4/article/home

Looks like only taking two cars, so will be running light unless anyone wants anything taking to the Madrid area!

Yes, but they're probably on some 'super advance special saver caravan Porsche owners club' offer... I'm on 'freight'!

What route & day? (pm if you'd rather it's not public)

You can't win. Having booked a ferry crossing to Spain and had it confirmed, the Ferry company have now cancelled the sailing!

New funnels not fitted in time, apparently. (All to do with emissions. )

So looks like now having to get a night boat to Caen the eve before then drive through France, and of course the day before is a bank holiday. Then there is the question on whether it will be ready for the return voyage!

Your team boat is going to be well heavy, as the agent tried to transfer me onto it, and it's full.

The only positive right now is that I don't have to worry about the BofB weather!

Well, the weekend at Jarama is all over for many of us, with racing finished last night, followed by a superb evening hosted by Peter Auto at a local golf club! Both our races were on Saturday, which is a first. Busy, but means can load up this morn and have easy run to the ferry port.

So, in (2hr) 60s Endurance it was an excellent day for some UK racers! Jeff Moyes in his lovely blue and self looked after 356 Speedster won the Index of Performance and Pre 63 classes. The Stevens family were flying in their 356SC, finishing an excellent 15th (ahead of several 911s) and also getting a class podium. Our Morgan SLR finished 10th o/a, beat all the Porkers and was first non Ford V8 or Jag engined car home. No class podium, but valid reason- nothing to do with performance!

In CER1, the (ex Mr Ruston ) B8 finished an excellent (Goliath beating) 12th o/a, well ahead of the other similar Chevrons.

Both our cars ran faultlessly in their races, however Friday practice and qualifying did reveal problems that were all sorted in time. The drivers all loved the circuit layout, the organisation was good, and only criticism from me is fact that temps fell to below freezing Friday night! There was still frost in the shade 1000 hrs yesterday morning.....

Glad everything worked out in the end, nothing worse than travelling hundreds of miles for the car to let you down, by the way it's warmer further down south at the moment !

Gordon, I've driven on salted roads, in heavy rain and 4deg temps to get to north coast today, where it is 19deg! I was going to stop at a nice little services in the mountains, but as it was cold and windy, and there was snow all around, decided to leg it north.... Glad I did.

Sounds like the truck could do with a wash and brush up Mike.

Given the quality of the UK's regular car washes these days (my neighbour had his car washed and valeted and the engine bay returned to "as new" (not bad for a 53 plate Volvo S6 series diesel) for a £10) I would suggest you seek out some economic migrants and offer then £15 to do the truck.

If course there may not be any on your route - but it's worth considering just in case some appear.

I've got my own EM truck wash team hiding in the back.....

Some of the trucks arrived at Jarama covered in salt after getting caught in a snow storm en route. Fortunately I was ahead of it, but as is tradition, truck was washed immediately on arrival.

One of the important reasons I feel privileged to be at the PA race meetings is the cars! Now there is GpC to add to the CER, pre66 GT and Touring cars, and everywhere you look in the paddock there are gems to be seen.

I stood on the pit wall while GpC were practicing, and decided holding a board out for them would be scary in the least! The speed they came down the bumpy straight was gob-smacking.....

I didn't get a chance to take many pics, but hopefully have one of the Peugeot 908 on my phone. This one was taken by another team member, and the scheme is one of my all time favourites -

Our full report is here, including the 905. Mike will surely like the shot of Bill almost losing the Morgan...
