James, can't reply, sorry!
A Capri 3.0 fitted with its mandatory 40 Weber can't be noisy. So I got an answer, thanks Mike.
A reliable 3100 is new on this grid, maybe they just respect the rev limit and dont send the tach needle too much past the 8500 mark.

The 917 and the 512 M have been kicked out from the podium by 2 litre protos!
So for "your" Chevron, I'd say 6th overall and 5th in class the last 2 laps changed the classification. Your drivers must have had fun with some T70 I guess.
Are you satisfied with the pit stop Mike?
Anyway a jolly good weekend for the team. Cheers!

Boissy "lost" one cylinder, he could fill his oil catch tank every 2 laps. He can only think about winning the class at the end of the year.
chunterer it seems the Capri is made in Stockport, i.e. Ric Wood. Its a Grp 1+, seems next time they will be in TC2. 48 IDA overbored, front coil over springs, AP 4 pots and large brake discs "bobbin style" and so on… The cooling system of the front brakes is fantastic! Pretty much Group C style…

Yes, we're well happy with results, thank you! The Monteverde 512 had a left rear wheel breakage or puncture with one lap to go, so was stopped in the pits when the flag came down. Maybe if the car had staggered across the timing line in the pit lane it could have registered another lap.... The 917 was 3rd when I last looked, but it was all changing! The B19 owner had a spin in his session but it wouldn't have made any difference to our result. Considering only the car's second race and the owner having to move up to a different performance level,

The Howmet went off during the race, leaving two massive black lines, so I'm guessing something to do with waste gate issue or associated with it! A privilege to see it on track, regardless!

A tail of woe !

Hi there to you all ; don't post very often, but do know Mike & of course Iain.

So I help run the Alfa GTAm No. 58 in the HTC & although not the quickest car, it's sure one of the nicest looking & we went from 16th to 12th (so we thought) at the end, but then got shown in 17th before becoming not classified !!!!!!!!!!!!

What happened ??? Well, on the very last lap, we were just being lapped by Meaden, & we were actually a few tenths in front of the Capri at the line, but by the time both cars were over the line we were behind it, & when Dickie slowed down we had to sit behind him as for him the race had finished !! We were then ushered into the pitlane & hence didn't finish the race, as we never passed 'our' chequered flag !!! Hence classified as a non finisher !!

The Alkamel guys saw that immediately & informed race control, who said that they had no time to inform any track crew to waive us thru & complete our lap & so we remained unclassified.

We should in fact have been showed a blue flag along with the chequered flag, but the marshalls didn't realise what was happening.

Moral of the story ; you as a driver have to know who is the race leader (god knows how) & if he's coming past you at the flag, slow down, or speed up !!!!!!!!!!!!!

All in all a disappointing end to a great weekend, especially as the pilot of the Spitfire fired it up towards the end of the BBQ !!!! Mike was probably in bed by then, as he's a serious preparer

BTW Mike, do you know if you've space for us for Monza yet ? I'll pm you.

Yours, Martin

Martin, I had almost the same thing at Spa last year. I was safely waiting for the checkered flag at the entry of the pits with some fuel feeding issues. I went through the line in front of almost all the staff after the winner was flagged. Then sent to the podium ceremony which lasted for a while. It was too late to ask for any explanation then was disqualified. Moral of the story? I couldn't see any!
From what you say which I believe, Meaden was not allowed to take over any car after the flag…
Nice Alfa you take care of!

Gerard, hi there, hope we meet some day, your comments re-the car are well appreciated. The real problem was that the transponder of our car crossed the line milliseconds before that of the Capri, but with the speed difference, the Capri then went ahead of us & finished his race & completed his slow down lap & as there is to be no overtaking of any car after the race has finished, our driver had no choice but to follow, not knowing he was actually still on his final lap !!

As I said, our driver should have been given a waived blue at the same time the chequered was shown, but how anyone - drivers, flag officials etc. could know the timed positions of each car is obviously not possible ; it's just one of those rare situations & it would have never arisen in pre- transponder period racing.
Maybe that's the solution - go back to stopwatches, as in period !!!

Bet that would please the officials no end !!

Iain, thanks for your good wishes & great to see you ! Maybe we'll have a bit more time at Monza in a few weeks.

For those who were not there, here is our report, and as Mike requested, the first shot you will see is an epic piece of driving by John Emberson in the venerable SLR. (but don't worry, there are shots before and after this one...)

Enjoy
