Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Phew, at last Jean Marc admitted he could test without the rear anti roll bar. Born in Britany, Bretagne, he's quite a tough nut!!

Trying to help a bloke. His car is really a good one but sometimes he's a pain in the neck with suspension settings. In addition he thinks that what his preparers says is gospel… French driver English preparer!

I don’t want to feel like I’m at home Gerard, I want to feel like I’m in the South of France.....

Mike, is a certain 26R still dangerous in you class classification? As to the weather, sorry…
Iain what car are you driving through the painted lanes? Take care, those could be less friendly than appear at first glance…
Cant imagine the traffic situation between Bandol/ Toulon and Le plan du Castellet. If you like rosé wines, may I suggest Pibarnon or Château Vannières? The latest in red is good too. Look for an official Vin de Bandol and enjoy with modération!!

Closest for under 2.5l championship is a 911, Gerard, then the Elan.

Hello drbob, what a wonder you have here, a master piece of elegance and efficiency, beautiful inside out. Thanks for the pic, be safe and have fun.

Good Mike, gon on like that… Did you hear about people experiencing a kind of "conflict" between the MSD box and a Stack rev counter? Jean Marc looks very happy with his renewed car but a little bit worried with those bits.

Just found this for JM: https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/do...ocID=TECH00139
I see MSD sells a Tach Adapter not forgetting this might be a ground trouble too…

Cheers Mike. Good to see the M back out.

Shame personally that I haven't been able to see it this year. Will be good against the hordes of 917s .
