Arrived here too, why so late, packing was damaged, seems like the box could not resist the weight if the books and the handling by the mailman.

Some news from the local papers. The starting line could move 130 meters far from the actual place from Tavano grandstand to Lagache or Leonard Grandstand. Not still really confirmed but it could be realized for "a better public' comfort".

Won't make much difference to Ayse and I, but I do like the idea. The race always starts with just a handful of cars on the pits straight, the rest of the field seemingly missing out on the big moment, with the majority of the them still crawling around the Ford Chicane. Not sure 130 metres will make a great deal of difference though.

The sixth and final bunk is up for grabs for the price of 60 euros, from thursday 3rd of May in the afternoon till sunday 6th of May. Price only includes the stay at the gte, not included are food and drink (including Vincegail's famous friday evening Chicken and Gueuze Stew) and access to the race.
Interested? Please send me a PM.
First come, first served.
Still available

This weekend it is the Antwerp Classic Salon, with as main themes 70 years Porsche 356, 70 years Citron 2CV and the 24 Hours of Le Mans
I wonder how many of 'the winning cars' they will be exhibiting

Not sure what the weather is doing in antwerp Vince but here in the uk it is banten down the hatches, centimetres of snow and temps often under 0, government is advising everyone to stay indoors until spring comes. Enjoy the show and see you in May if the snow has gone by then.

No longer active on facebook, so started on Flickr. Pictures of the Antwerp Classic Salon, with Le Mans cars, and 2CVs . Only winner present was the 1935 Lagonda, which was on loan from the Louwmans Museum. An album of my recent visit to said museum also present in my Flickr. All in all the Antwerp Classic Salon was a bit underwhelming, I am glad I am a local and didn't had to travel. Still, my Flickr Albums might be of interest to some amongst you, so here goes:
