Yep I'm competing, car 92 (Subaru Impreza). Can't wait to get out there, with the new turbo fitted since last year and newly resurfaced track, should be quick!

The Maxi has a target of 12 laps to do (1750cc), and I have 13 (1994cc + turbo)! How do they set these things?

Even Einstein was unable to work that out. And he tried!

Maybe the Maxi is allowed a lap for re-welding?

Only two cars have only seven laps to complete - both Vauxhalls!

What does that say about VivaGT .................. and myself.

The idea Iain is to find the ideal car to go touring on the continent, something that is comfortable, with room for two large suitcases, passenger space for the 'popsie', plenty of speed for the Autoroutes, and good handling for the Alpine passes, and able to stop in a hurry when necessary.

That is why it has been won by pre-war Frazer Nash's in the past.

The result is based on a series of driving tests and a number of internal measurements!!!

The results take a couple of days to work out.


It is a great deal of fun to watch, and presumably to compete in.

A few year ago an ex-hearse took part - just the job for your holiday in France.

Blurb from the VSCC site: "In February 2018 the VSCC will once again be returning to Silverstone to kick off the Race season with the legendary 'Pomeroy Trophy', in which both Pre-war and Post-war vehicles will be marked on their speed, agility, and braking capabilities in this exciting and totally unique event.

Based on Laurence Pomeroy's formula to calculate the ultimate Touring Car, the Pomeroy Trophy is awarded to the overall event winner.

As well as taking part in a High Speed Regularity Time Trial, the cars will be tested on handling, accelearation, and braking - not least forgetting one of the most unique car tests in the world: the ability to carry two VSCC standard sized suitcases!"
[reading that back, they could do with somebody proof-reading it!]
The 'high speed' test is being run in three sessions, so that there isn't too big a difference in performance/speed between the cars on track. These are 40 mins each, with a target number of laps based on your handicap. The other tests ("wiggle woggle", standing 250m and flying 250m, and braking test) are done during one lap, with a bit of queueing.

I have an enlarged prostate! Would that result in bonus points?
