The established 'OldTimer' includes FJ Lurani, HGPCA and Masters grids from the UK.

If you read the instruction given, it is open to DMSB HTP cars which are national cars and which would possibly go for general acceptance of national cars of other countries I presume and if so, possibly far away from anything FIA as I know the practices around Europe. Also, it will be considering cars up to 1996 included on invitation.

In my opinion this is the reason the Marathon won't be back, too large, too unrestricted. Whom would like to race against the likes of early 90s DTM machinery or BPR cars as well as 935s and 3.0RSR in a pre-66 car?

I wouldn't but I would be the first to actually put an entry if it looked a little more serious and consistent. Racing on the Ring is interesting but not against anything. I would prefer a simple coaching day for that, already dangerous enough.

It sounds more like a Gruppe H and Nürburgring Classic lookalike with all the funny stuff than the Marathon was...
Coaching day would have to a Trackday. TF is pointless😉

Interested to find about a bit more about the car that came 2nd in Masters Gentleman Drivers race- the Ferrari 250 GTO 1964 or Series II.......

This car is only seen rarely in the UK, usually at Goodwood, but I’ve seen it win at Imola last year, and in the hands of Dutch Driver Nicky Pastorelli it is very quick! The interesting bit is that it isn’t an original GTO, having been built over many years from scratch, which could go some way to explaining how competitive it is......

Fantastic car, but I don’t think quite as pretty as the earlier cars. Story of it here....
