That’s the timetable, Gerard- which I was just about to post a link to! Thanks for saving me the trouble......

Provisional entry lists have been sent out to competitors, but don’t seem to be on the website yet. Grids are good! Circuit max of 75 already entered for 60s Endurance, plus 9 reserves..... As usual at this meeting we get the short(ish) straw, and are on track Friday, Saturday and Sunday eves...... Does tend to interfere with the socialising!

Mike, know what you mean about the socialising !

Also, my missus & l normally do a car boot sale close to our home & this year it clashes with this PA event. l'm still considering doing prep work late on Friday eve, then returning home to help her on Saturday, before returning to Spa for our night race on Saturday eve !
Luckily, she doesn't look at this site, so l can leave my options open for the moment but it would win me lots of brownie points to be 'cashed in' later on in the year !

Hope to meet up with you during the event.

Sorry for the link, Mike…
Martin I know your french language is very good so why not "joindre l'utile à l'agréable" at Spa? Just have to put old slicks in your GATM boot, they can make acceptable tables, add some guillotine injection bits and why not an Autodelta rear suspension? And a double ignition distributor head! I think I won't be there but I could add some Capri pistons, one crankshaft and a severely damaged head too! Signed by Ric Wood and… me!
Sorry for the Ric thing, Mike!

Young Will if you spot an old shiny wreck based on a poor and so simple TR4 lined up in the Sixties grid, this time dont say a word: its a rare and wonderful Morgan SLR… Very well put together, maintained on a very professional standard and very well driven too!

Hope you'll understand that you're living in a country blessed by mechanical gods and that the UK produced the great majority of the wonders you enjoy to watch. If you want to imagine what it takes, sometimes, to refurbish a classic, mind you the dealers are closed and the part lists have gone for a long while straight to the bin.
I'm currently trying to help a bloke racing a Commodore B GS Coupé. Some steering parts are pain in the neck to find not mentioning a single headlamp or rear light complete unit. And its not always just a matter of money…

The question for Kevin was: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwnVZAGhArY So, red or yellow?

Apologies, I haven’t received the entry lists in a format that can use to post link. CER1 includes the yellow Monteverde 512M but no 917. In CER2 there are 3 of the amazing Ferrari 512BB LMs on the list, and the 1977 Le Mans Aston Martin DBSV8. If it shows, that car is cool....

Gerard! Only bit of the Morgan SLR taken from a TR is the engine...... And OT, but at Dijon there will be two, as I’m sharing the red one with its owner there.....

Gerard, mon ami, je sais bien parler votre langue maternal, mais mon ecriture est loin d'etre parfait - see what l mean !

Concerning the GTAm , l only throw a few spanners at it from time to time ! It has a very hi spec, with a 2 plug testa stretta, full 'slittoni' rear end & all other period items. The owners are true Alfisti & it's my good fortune to know them & get to work on the car from time to time.

It runs Webers, as most people agree that period Spica injection gives very little extra power, but a shed load more of problems, so really not worth it !
Pity you will not be at Spa as it would be great to meet u with you. A la prochaine, alors !

You only have to look at the entry to see.The SLR is unique to say the least.I do prefer a Cobra though 😁.

Its great seeing a 427 Cobra in CER1.

Martin I know your french speaking is good. Being from a Flamish/Belgian family I should speak your language but I'm totally unable to! I guess your engine is a 2 liter as per appendix allowance. I remember you told me your slittoni (guillotine de pont AutoDelta in bad French) works fine because its well adjusted and using a lot of grease. Have fun there!

Mike talking about socializing, did you see the 26R #16 entry shows only one driver? You can test your public relation skills with the Grantura owner too! 41 entries in HTC including a wonderful HemiCuda and an XJS.

Yes, I saw that. The car has to survive Tour Auto first, though......

The Grantura was entered for the last round but didn’t show, so we’ll see if it turns up at Spa.

Agree about the Touring Car entry, but still (in my opinion) too many Escorts and RS2600 Capris!

Will be interesting to see Minshaw in the XJR9.First race for him and the car if it turns up. I think its the LM version of the 9.

24 cars for the Legends grid is great.

Has always been a finisher so far. I hope for your team it won't be a great shape. Basically its a very good one.
Agreed re the HTC grid and because its supposed to be a 24 H de Spa Francorchamps revival to few Grp1 or Grp1,5 imo. We have a lot of good arguments and some experience too but probably we dont speak the right language… Difficult to understand why the 'Stangs are accepted as TC1s because they are at least Grp2 appendix J. Certaines voies sont impénétrables, n'est ce pas?

I’m sure the Elan will be healthy after Tour Auto. It is, after all, very professionally prepared!

I’m not sure the Pre ‘66 Mustangs really fit in, but from memory it has been the case since the series began. The first race in 2013 also included our Zef in his Cortina GT amongst other earlier cars!

I still enjoy looking at photos of the 24hr race in the ‘glory days’. I would have loved to be able to drive in that race! After looking at mid 70s pics, I went to town in 2013 when fitting period lighting to Canary for the event....
