Muller, now there is a legend. That was in 2005 when he lost his windshield, but he kept on going. Only in Bathurst are you likely to see a driver not bothered by the loss of a windscreen. Muller's had a lot to cope with in his career, from ice racing to tin tops, so something like that would have been a minor inconvenience to him

Do love these stories. How long ago did you drive that 505 down Mulsanne? I'm intrigued. Those speeds sound fun. Especially with no chicanes

And yes Sat Navs can be misleading, but to get from Australia to Spain, now there's an idea

Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Mmmmm the 505 I'd say 1986. We had a a one make series, organised by PTS (Peugeot Talbot Sport) the boss was Jean Todt. We had to purchase a full kit, mechanical and body parts, to fit to a road car. The result was very fast cars, door to door racing and last but not least a lot of money for the 1st to 10 th place. The engine was a Chrysler 2 litre overbored to 2.2 and the engine parts had been studied by Danielson, a french company located near Magny-Cours.
A rare opportunity for Sunday drivers to race at Le Mans and Monaco.

The Pom. We often see all sorts of cars out on track. It's classes as a High Speed Trial isn't it? Does this mean it doesn't have the strict safety standards - cage/firex/cut outs etc?

Call it what you like, it was cancelled.*

I imagine not, as there are many road cars taking part, although I have never checked on 'safety measures', it is hard to see people adding roll cages to their pride and joy simply to enter the POM.

*What do you call a dog with no legs?


Call it what you like, it still won't come. f it smoked you could take it for a drag in the park,
