My first trip to Prenois was as a spanner, could have been 2008 or 2009. As it was l’Age d’Or meeting it was early summer and scarily hot. I went back to race my +4 a year or so later expecting the same and it rained constantly for over 24hrs, before drying up on the Sunday.....

Sometimes we ask for horrible weather just in case the UK competitors could miss the rain…
I hope David will enjoy his stay and race may be he'll post pictures or a video.

Mr Smith, I guess you must be satisfied with your 1'45"302 in the wet knowing a very good 26R is doing 1'42"9. Still 1'44"459 for an MG B is fast. Prepare yourself to hard fight against the two Minis! The others Sprites did 1'48"4 and 1'52"8 meaning you can win your category if my reading is correct.
At the end of the long straight, before the right/left/right, its not always necessary to brake on the left part of the track…
PS: 1'42"898 is really fast for a L'Tina… Bob will be happy to know that a '89 Astra got the second BLT!

Thanks Gerard, no video of qually as we forgot to install the camera. Car is too soft on the rear, a bit of a handful in some corners, but is going well. Not braking at the end of the pit straight is not an option for me - I hit 7900 rpm in 4th which is qhite quick... I am not brave enough!
I followed the Lo'Tina for half a lap, he had it dancing, very good driver.

I feel you've fun, go on like that! Too soft at rear in the wet on this track is better than too stiff specially if you car is fitted with a live axle. Beware of the white lanes… Hope the welcome is warm; weather forecast is not so good!

You've better… From your knowledge do you think we could enter two or three MX-5 1600, not htp'ed but safety compliant in your series and in the Dutch YCC next year? Nice fellows, looking for relaxed ambiance…
Dont forget the action cam if you can please!

Fingers crossed, our David is doing great just before pit stop… just for Andy, a '44 S2 is currently 4'th…

First Midget taking the lead during the very last minutes, David? Hard fight with Atkinson and Page I guess. Page looks very fast from the live timing. So, what is your strategy for tomorrow? No prisoner?!!

Loks like MX5 would fit into Modern Classics series...
https://www.classicsportscarclub.co.uk/series
an email or phone call to the club office would confirm, and make you feel welcome... they are good people.
Videos to be uploaded to Youtube after I get home.

Now tell us more, what kind of modifications since Copenhagen, how was your pit stop, are you happy to bring laurels just before winter…… Are you playing: Les gens heureux n'ont pas d'histoire?

Well done David.
Good to see a 944 do well. How did the “Magnificent 7” cars get on?
An MX5 Mk1 is eligible for both the Future Classics and Modern Classic Series. I remember one in particular going extremely well on individual throttle bodies. Also turbo charged Mk1s are eligible for Modern Classics, I think, as the BBR conversion was counted as a factory authorised car sold through the main dealer network.
