You can try, but.....

There's a huge 'logistics' issue this year, with the big Peter Auto event at Imola weekend before the Algarve. There literally is not time for a truck to return from Italy and get to Portugal!

Most of the transport specialists are servicing Imola, and I'm committed as well. As we are racing at the Portimao event, our car is having to be sent out with someone else with us flying there. Feels very odd....... I can't speak for Delta but understand he may be in the same situation.

I think someone like CARS are large enough to be able to cope with both meetings. We are hoping to use another specialist, Paul Jesty, who is trying to have trucks cover both meetings. I will PM his contact details to the OP. Other preparers such as Jeremy Welch, Pearsons, Simon Hadfield and Blakeney-Edwards MS (to name a few!) sometimes have space as well, but don't always know until near the date......

Believe there is a Caterham race the same weekend and McMillan Motorsport based in Hinkley will be going to that and they have the ability to transport a lot of cars with their trucks, you could try them and see if they have an extra space.

Having heard from Andy Adshead at McMillan they do have space to take cars to Portimao for anyone looking to get cars transported.

The message i have had from them below and their contact details.

'With the existing trucks we do have space for 2 historic road cars (not formula cars), the next option is to take 4 historics (we would backload 4 Caterhams to the UK and reload with 4 that are just doing Estoril) or the third option is a full 8 historic car truck that would do a separate journey and then head down to Estoril with 8 Caterhams…'

That's lucky, seeing as you weren't keen anyway!

I'll be racing in GTSCC with Simon Orebi Gann, driving his Morgan SLR again. It's usually my final truck trip of the year, but as I'm at Imola weekend before this time, we've had to arrange for someone else to transport the car! All feels a bit odd- will be first time since the event started that have not driven and ferried all the way there and back......

Lets hope the weather reverts to that which we enjoyed in the early events, and not the rain of last two or three years!

Enjoy Mike....you will get used to the fly and drive!

Although a great circuit we are giving it a miss this year. The overly officious security team put us off.

Well, I made it to the Algarve! Got back from Imola with truck mid Wednesday afternoon, up at 2am next morn to get to Gatwick for Faro flight. That delayed 2.5hrs due to fog.......

No sun but mid 20s, still warm walking back from a restaurant on the beach in the evening last night! Free practice for GTSCC this morning, so early brekkie then off.....
