Point of order, Mr Moderator.

Guillaume le B√Ętard, duc de Normandie, may have been born in what is now France but it was then a fiercely independent Duchy and his father's family came from the Norse countries. William spent much of his live fighting against the French.

I agree but "HONNI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE" that's a french sentence that all "rosbeef" understand i think ; so you should learn some french before i translate the De Cad Story.

So sorry Mr Moderator , i am kidding...

driftwood has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Ros biff where successful at Agincourt and you guys so easily could have been speaking English if it was not for Joan of Arc

However I look forward to reading your full report in English as it will be useful for our american australian NZ ZA readers as well

I have just called Ray Mallock to ask if the chassis is still in the yard from the Ecosse/ De cadanet
He said its now long gone
The engine gearbox rear end was used on Henry the 2nd Ecosse so the De cad ADC77 car is still around albeit it in a different form

hi everybody...

So sorry, but i have no time to translate in english the text about De Cadenet at Le Mans (this text was given into the press room at Le Mans !)
and you can read it in french here :
http://forums.motorlegend.com/vb/sho...=27067&page=11


But i know that Alain De Cadenet is reading it "in french" because his father was... FRENCH ! so now i am just waiting for any reaction (if he want to react ! and that is not sure !)

I have just come across this web page, and there is a picture of the LM1 taken in 74.

Across the front there is a number plate, VLA 451M, anyne know why?

I read somewhere that De Cadenet sometime tested his car speed on the Msomething, so the number plate could have something to do with speed testing on public road...

True story about the testing. I didn't work for deCadenet at the time but have been told that in an effort to try something out the car was indeed run at high speed between two motorway juntions early one morning, I think with Keith Greene driving. The transit van and trailer were parked at the exit ready for a quick getaway from the scene! Not related in any way to being road registered.

I knew about the M5 story...
Wwe know that LM1 (in 74) and LM2 (the Lola in 75 and 76) had the VLA 451 M license plate.

Maybe, just to get out of the island of great britain with some papers, for custom just to proove that it is a temporary export... it was a small team so, maybe it was the cheapest and the speedest way to get the car out of the island....
or something like that...

In Goodwood revival 2007, was it LM2 (the Lola T380) ? or a fake ?

Drifty, i am sure you know about that !
