Should Max join us, a very good thing imo, the Alain Prost karting track is renowned not only for its lawn mower engined karts! Few yards from the paddock.

Hope you will have the opportunity to play your music in France, Joe. Do you know that Johnny Halliday used to song a remake of The house of the rising sun? Same music but instead of a house of joy, Hallyday was singing Le pénitencier. More politically correct.

I'm considering doing it in the BMW.

Even stumped up the extra cash for the appropriate licence just before the Coronavirus f***ed everything up for all of us.

So who knows what will happen now? I guess we can't even be sure at this stage if it will definitely go ahead? Will us Brits be allowed into the country without having to spend time in quarantine? That would put a bit of a damper on it, to say the least!

I would still be tempted though, funds permitting of course. After all, I can't see MSUK giving me a refund on the licence just because I decided not to use it, can you?

Depending on the year/model/displacement I think you could enter it in several grids. Is it an M3? If they dont merge GT Classic and Salooncars as they sometimes do you can prepare yourself to have a busy weekend.

I wish!

But it's an E30 325i.

So that's late '80s, 2.5 litre six-pot, triple Webers.

There are too many different grids in CSCC for me to understand but I think you could enter Future Classics and french Salooncars/GT Classic which will be one grid instead of two. Depending on what you wish, want and can afford.

Thanks Gerard!

Yes, Future Classics is my regular haunt. Of course, whatever happens it would be an expensive weekend to do this event, so a lot depends on funds.

But also, travel may be the big problem - as things stand at the moment, the idea of two weeks quarantine before and after rather kills the idea somewhat. Let's hope those restrictions are lifted by then, as it's simply not practical otherwise.

Gerard - the French Saloon/GT Classic: what sort of stuff would be racing in that race? Are they having just one race at this meeting, and what's the format/length likely to be? And, of course, if you happen to know - how much is the entry fee likely to be?

If it was affordable, it might make sense to enter more than one race having spent all the money to get there!

Paul, the idea behind GT Classic was to make a "prestigious" grid, with Ferraris Lambos and stuff like this. I must confess that before the first season I was consulted about the Porsches because I drove many 911's in different trims. Of course, two 993 Bi-turbo showed up together with one or two Vipers, killing the competition. Sadly, this grid is more or less dying with some 964's and 968's… Hence the Salooncars to join sometimes which should be the case at Bugatti.

Salooncars grid is operated by a very nice person, Claude Maurel, sport and pleasure oriented. The guy is cool! You can have Bimmers, 996 GT3 cup, Audi Quattros and a fast Seven to name few. All in all, very different cars but a lot of battes at different levels. The rules are simple and there's no police to spoil your pleasure. Just find a bloke and have fun.

If everything goes right, talking with my rose tinted glasses, I'll enter my poor little MX5 on road tyres just for the pleasure to drive and share it with MG David. I know the guy is fast and if ever the rain comes…

Have to check the race format, usually its either 2X30' or one hour with mandatory pit stop. I know the Bugatti is very expensive to rent for any organiser. I'll ask Claude if its possible to escape the annual fee for foreigners, can guarantee nothing but trying.

As you say, while you're here why not drive the more you can? This year is different in many aspects, isn't it? I see only one problem entering two grids is the gap between two races to add fuel in the tank and some water in the driver!
Again if everything goes right, we'll be several Tenthers to give help. Would be a nice way to give a kick to the virus…

On board view from Vincent Delarche's Seven at Charade last year:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNoXy8PUafc
Dont worry, the smallest car but certainly the best driver of this batch. He now has more power under the pedal -180 HP in the 1600 Crossflow-, the 996 will be far behind…
Dont tell me about his rear axle noise, my Capri has the same!!

That name rings a bell. I'm sure he was one of the French drivers that came over to the UK for a race with HRSR back in the early 1990s. Silverstone, I seem to recall. I shall search out old results sheets.

Hi Morning! It could be either Claude the father or Franck his son. Interesting career for Franck, a brilliant mechanic, specialized in transmissions probably the best here to fix a Bimmer trans. He runs a small company, Blue Fox engineering, and rebuilt interesting cars like a Cesca-Grac. This one looks a little bit like a GRD.
