Do you mean it's going to be more exciting than a usual year?

How is that possible?

Got back from Portugal late last night, managed to switch off at about 0030hrs, up at 0530 and now at Portsmouth waiting for the night boat. Lucky the coffee place has some comfy chairs.


Zzzzzz......

Good Qualy, Mike! No pizza but a Morgan sandwich, between two 911's. Many cars in the region of 2'16", they gone have fun. How is the weather?

OK qualifying but FCY period and several individual waved yellows stopped any attempt by Bill near the end to put a ‘flier’ in.

We’re being very careful as the SLR could win the under 2.5 litre championship, but at least has to start the race....

B19 has not raced here before, and was going well in FP until the driver in it at the time caught the nose on a kerb and did it no good at all. The lads have just finished repairing it ready for qualifying tomorrow. I sacrificed the aluminium boat hook that lives in the truck gooseneck locker to help effect the repair! (And if you’re wondering why I need a boat hook, it’s to reach stuff in the locker that human arms can’t..... )

It’s been cloudy all day and almost started to rain mid afternoon, then decided not to. Still question mark over Sunday, but think tomorrow should be sun again.

Thanks for the news, overall class win for the SLR is well deserved.

Your boat hook thing, nearly the same happened to us, we used an aluminium stepladder to repair an oil pipe! At the end of the race, the car was running fine but we couldn't catch anything stocked in high place! We never returned to AlbaceteÖ

Enjoy it and take care!
PS: I think that the french name for gooseneck is "capucine" but why?

Congrats, Mike! First in class, was 15 then 14 overall in the last lap (Cobra behind), year overall class winners, what else?
Another finish for the 356, well done too. Champagne!

There possibly will be champagne- at the do tonight!

Only 5th in under 2.5 litre category but for a change the 26Rs finished! The SLR wasn’t quite at its best- not sure why, but the result was good enough to guarantee 1st in the season under 2.5 litre championship. Fantastic result for the Stephens family again, with Will’s fastest lap quicker than half the grid of 911s.......

You had a very fast GTA, finishing 12th, best lap in 2'16"589. Is this driver, M Werner the same who won so many races in U2TC some years ago?

During your race, I was chatting with Jean Marc. What is amazing in the Sixties series, being the longest race and the most supported grid, is the high number of cars finishing. In spite of being highly competitive, this grid shows a level of reliability not found in other series -HTC for instance- but why?

Iím not sure about the Alfa driver but I was told by someone that raced GTAs that the car is Ďas good as they getí and Ďno expense sparedí......

And the Chevron "hooked" a good LT during Q. Fingers crossed.

Well, itís all change this morning, with heavy rain during the night and continuing showers so far today. Hereís hoping it does dry out this afternoon, as I hate loading in the rain....

The B19 qualifying time was better than expected, so all were happy. And the repaired front section, damaged in FP, held up well! Coincidentally the fastest B19 came in during qualifying with virtually identical damage. Probably the same kerb.....

One member of the team was caught out by the clocks going back, but at least it meant they turned up early rather than late!
