Not sure whether it has been mentioned (apologies if I missed it) but I see on FB that there’s a mini clubman entered in the 6 Hour race by Owen Fabrications, complete with wooden outer frame!
I think they are hoping for rain!

This one has a breakdown of forecast in 4 hour brackets for Spa Francorchamps. Scroll down page for detailed forecast. It shows some sunshine Friday pm, minimal rain on Saturday, and Sunday from 2pm get the deep cut wets out.

Best of luck.

I looked at it on Ventusky's site, who are usually very accurate, and they indicate heavy rainfall all day for both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday, they were forecasting that the rain would cease at around 19.00 hours, and resume at around midnight.

Yes, itís entry and eligibility to get an HTP was questioned a few pages back! Not a Clubman, though, that was the bluff fronted Mini. This is a Traveller or Countryman, depending on whether a Morris or Austin. (I havenít checked the entry list...)

I never knew there was a brand split between the estate car name.

I think the interesting thing is that it still has the external wooden frame!

As indicated in paperwork, not getting in until 8pm, by which time no doubt it will be raining!
