Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
No worry about the breakfast when "ring in", they do bake very good croissants there … And when you return to Spa just ask for a "pistolet" … almost the same thing, only the shape differs. An the spelling bien sūr !

Well, it would solve the Nurburgring accommodation problem!

That dealer has a few nice cars - including a really lovely Vauxhall!!

Yes, the dealer has some interesting non-exotic stuff. Nice to see.

My previous trips to the 'Ring have involved van or truck hotel in the paddock, so anything posher would spoil me.....

I've stayed in some nice places for the 'Ring, including the Dorint (Opel were paying!) but haven't been there since 2004. Hope to go to the 90th anniversary meeting.

Had a very pleasant evening there, sharing a dinner table with a pair of karting dads - John Cleland & Keke Rosberg! The next day Keke took us for a lap of the Nordschleife, JC never having been there before. Happy days.

Did I hear the Leith Poleeth (or whatever they're called the wrong side of the border) want to do him for dangerous driving?
