Group C race at Spa this weekend - what cars will attend?

The first group C race this season will be held this weekend in Spa. I have never seen these cars in real and just bought a new camera that needs to be thoroughly tested before Le Mans so I have two good reasons to jump in the car.

As I am not too familiar with the Tiga's, Spice's and Harriers, so I would like to bring an entry list. I tried to e-mail to the address displayed on the Group C website but unfortunately no response. Is someone able to share the entry list with me, point me to the right site or if both do not work out can guess which cars will be there?

By the way who else is going?

May 7-9, Friday to Sunday, Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium
1 x 30 mins Practice with French Prototypes (Friday 10:00 - 10:30)
1 x 40 mins Qualifying (Friday 15:40 - 16:20)
1 x 40 mins Race 1 (Saturday 11:25 - 12:05)
1 x 40 mins Race 2 (Sunday 11:25 - 12:05)

I'm going!

I keep checking the entry too. The other races are up, for example: http://www.rmuclassic.be/2004/entry3.html I see the Gp C are track sweepers for us on the friday

The race was good last year. I can't wait.

There are a lot of Group Cs entered for the Le Mans support race, so hopefully they will all be tempted to use this as a warm up (is Spa a warm up? ).

If you are around then pop over to the paddock on the outside of Eau-Rouge, we should be hanging around.

I haven't decided where to watch them from yet...

Excellent! I'll be there only on Saturday.

So if you will be there on Saturday too I would certainly like catch a coffee or something like that. What do you mean with the Paddock on the 'outside' of Eau Rouge?

There are so many great places to watch!

It'll be a great opportunity to snap those Grp Cs.

Yes, I'm in the paddock on the outside of Eau Rouge. I don't know that area well, we were on the inside last time. For clrification see this thread: http://tentenths.com/forum/showthrea...threadid=52942

Come round. We practice late on Saturday, so pop over and I'll put the kettle on.

Great! It is indeed behind the grandstands just before Eau rouge on the outside -- it is not really part of the paddock right? That's the area where normally the model cars stands are.

I'll drop you a PM with my mobile number. Let me know what team can use some photo's

Two days before the event and still no list...

You'll probably get to know before me. Unless we find out while there! If NissanGTP pops in he might have an idea of a few.
Its not Grp C and only vaguely sportscars, but I hope Ayse and Fab forgive me. Look for something like this. There are some Grp C pics on there, but they are embarassing (wrong place, wrong camera).

I see your going for the XJR-14 look.

Stick a twin deck rear wing on the XJS and blow the field away

Looks fun.
