Díage díOr Dijon 8-10/6

There can be a Pre War Sports Car race at this meeting if they get six entries from UK in next 48 hours.

Itís a Peter Auto meeting along with CER ,Sixties stuff etc.

Itís a great opportunity to race at a superb circuit with plenty of track time.

All the usual MRL type cars invited plus the Le Mans Classic Entries

Itís a good way to set yourself up for a possible LMC acceptance in 2020

Thatís long term planning

Ideal as no Silverstone Festival meeting race this year

Some grids look really healthy, others a bit thin to say the least !!


We will be there with the yellow GTAm in HTC ....... just waiting for the gearbox to arrive ... same swop on the Ti Super, so garage a bit full at the moment.


Yes, the orbital trainer is still for sale ..... little used & can deliver for collection at Dijon !!

Mmm, a lot of notable absentees, especially from the U.K.! Is it the Le Mans Classic effect, with that being only a month after? Relatively poor entry in CER2 in particular.... Euro F2 and ĎThe Greatestí are down even on their normal low numbers.

Will, if those other 356s are as noisy as yours, Iíll be packing extra strength earplugs for the pitwall.....

BTW, from previous experience, bring mosquito repellent......

MartinH if you had some crank issues few years ago at Spa, I guess we were neighbors then (black Capri MKII).
Mike, does your SLR still have a close relationship with a french TVR? Cant believe it! Is your mosquito repellent of help in this matter?

Not sure what position is after qualifying, but certainly in our class the Elva GT160 is way quicker than anything else.

Good to see some money has been spent! The new garages are very plush, with toilets (including hangers and bench for driver to change) included. Sad that the old cafeteria has gone, as that always seemed very popular. The hospitality for this meeting is upstairs above the new garages, and a great improvement over the previous marquees all the way over at the other side of pit straight!

No rain today- yet Had a big thunderstorm middle of day yesterday when the cars and equipment were in the open. Had to bail the B8 out......

Yep, Le cavallino cafeteria was a great place but things have to go. "Your" friend's TVR seems out of shape and the mighty 356 started lately the Qualy. Drivers stuck in the new toilets not wanting to pay for the key?

Best top speeds are sometimes interesting to look at. A Mustang previously entered as a Grp1 made 213,9 kmh. Not bad…

Elva: 217,7 SLR: 193,2 and "THE" P 356:177 km/h.May be the reason why Mike finds it noisy, it stays longer in the straight!

Sadly we broke a drive shaft on lap 5 of free practice, so had to set too and swap the gearbox out having of course first removed the engine first (!) in time for Quali. If was touch and go whetherer we would get any laps in at all, as we were still bolting the engine in as the rest of the grid was going out. We made it with 15 mins of quali left.....I am sure Mike was delighted to be deafened only for a few laps!

A good training for mechanics. If my memory serves, the 356 gearbox is "firmly" installed in the chassisÖ*Isn't a kind of U shape bracket maintaining the gearbox while reinforcing the tunnel? Anyway I hope the bad things of the seasons are behind you.
