Willmaz223 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Now this has gotten me very excited.

A BMW V12 LMR will be running in the Enduro Legends demonstration sessions according to PA Instagram.

Looks like the Endurance Racing Legends has changed from Demos to races.

So far, 83 cars on the 60s Endurance grid, then 8 reserves and 8 on the waiting list! Guess what, it’s LMC next year again. Amazing how it brings cars out of the woodwork....

The HTC grid (54 cars so far) includes McLaren Boss Zak Brown in a Cologne Capri and a 1985 BMW M5 ‘Superproduction’ car, which is a new one on me. EDIT- One of these... https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/l...duction/380777

59 entered for CER1, no Howmet or Gulf 917 though, and for young will, the EL and GpC entry lists....

In France over the years you had Grp 1, then slightly modified cars became Production around '80 then came Superproduction. The last years of Production could be compared to your BTCC '82, Superproduction between your BTCC and Mod Sports. RoughlyÖ Marc Sourd was a vey inspired pro driver.

Thankyou Mike.

Nearly 100 cars then. WOW. Something about this event that always nakes it bigger than other ones.

Always seems to attract unique cars such as the the 917 Can Am that raced last year.

Good luck Iain on getting onto the Grid with Bob.

What a grid that is

2 917s
2 512s
2 Alfas

Along with Group c and everything else. If I would have gone I dont think I could have coped . Maybe next April maybe. And then Le Mans Classic which I am already counting down till.

When will 1st entries be out anyway for that one. Usually March April i think?

Most stands are closed . Paddock is free I imagine.

Programme if interested I think is also in French/English.

Not sure apart from that.

Thatís great news, look forward to meeting you again. The 2hr 60s race is always last on Saturday eve, so be warned, it could be getting dark during the race.... Couple of years ago they had to abandon due to torrential rain, thunder and lightning, but hopefully that was an exception to the rule! I can get that sort of weather here- donít need to go to the South of France for it.
