A bit early but people are already talking about it! A must for an awful lot of people- competitors, spectators, Marshals, classic car owners......

I can’t imagine not being there, even if I’m just kicking tyres!

I think a more up to date entry list will be published tomorrow. Seems there's still room for interesting cars. Glad to see al tenthers sorted.

If they just get all the cars moved to the right plateaus it will be an improvement! I am aware of one racer a little bit annoyed that only 2 of his 3 cars are on the list so far.....

One exciting entry (for me anyway) is occasional tenther Adrian Brady in 6 with his Gp5 BMW320i.

Are you talking about someone having already a RSR and a 75 S accepted? I see this BMW could come from Aus. All plateaux will keep them busy and plateau 4 won't be the least! They must be prepared to have many visitors during Rétromobile show…

I am sure it will be a good one, plenty of classic cars to make it into an event worth following

Adrian Brady has long been associated with BMWs of all types. He has (had?)an original BMW Aus (Frank Gardner built) Jim Richards driven JPS 635 which is obviously ex Australia. The car to beat in '85 (ATCC, Aus Endurance title and AMSCAR Series in 1985, claiming 17 wins, a third, a fourth and a fifth from 21 races started.)
But he also has owned/driven a Luigi 3.0CSL. Certainly not from Aus.
I think he himself is not based in Aus.... he certainly lived (maybe still does) in Hong Kong for many years and classes himself as an ex-pat, and does still appear here on occasion to race.
Moving back to the 320 entered for LMC we never really had any Gp5 cars down here as there was no racing for that category, so I doubt whether it (the 320) ever came from here.
Sorry if that is a bit of a long winded way to in saying I doubt it to your maybe from Aus comment!

E.B., to surmise- He hails from down under, the car doesn’t!

I’ve met Adrian a few times, probably last at the 2018 LMC, when he sold me a spare camping pass! That year he was racing his gorgeous 24 valve CSL.....
