YTCC club will join the french HVM meeting of Charade, France (near Clermont Ferrand), 19/21 June, 1 Q plus 3 races of 30 minutes each, 695 € entry fee for members. If you feel Misano is too far you can have a look to other grids by HVM Racing.

Mike, there was a press release on the subject a few days ago. If you haven't already got them I can give you the dates.

It was me who asked about this a while ago, thanks for that. If anyone has more info can they post it here (dates etc)

It is an interesting squeeze in the marketplace. MotorRacingLegends sent out a flyer this week saying drivers will need to be members of their new "club" to enter - at £350 each. It will be interesting to see how this pans out. More dilution I suspect.

Their eligibility is interesting. You can run a Cooper Monaco or a Lotus 15, but not a 3.8 Ctype/D-type or any Allard. They are also excluding the big engined american cars like Kellisons which cant get FIA papers so are looking for somewhere to race. There are a few in the UK and they arent really that competitive if running to period spec

Just briefly, Equipe 50 has been created for fans & racers of 1950's Production Sports (up to 3.6-litres) & Sports Racers, sub 2-litres.

John Pearson says: "Equipe 50s is a natural & complementary extension to our existing grids. We think there are many owners & drivers of 1950's cars out there looking for competitive racing in closely matched classes."

I am still on the Legends Mailing List but - preferring single seaters - am not really a MRL client anymore. I did wonder about the 350 pound fee and am quite happy that this is none of my concern.

As Geraint says, that will be interesting to watch as it unfolds.
Do MRL offer day memberships ?

Rétromobile show, Paris, 5/9 Feb

If you're in Paris area you can meet at least two french meeting organizers, Peter Auto and HVM during Rétromobile show, 5/9 February, porte de Versailles. Clean toilets, overpriced sandwiches. Not a recommendation,info.

Will you be going, Gerard?

I've just bought a cheap train ticket for Wednesday 5 February, so hope they will actually be running that day.

Yep, more or less mandatory, its always half a pleasure at least, with many people you like to meet and some other you dont appreciate so much…
Mind you, whatever the price of the train ticket nobody can tell what the unions will do. So John, always ready for a nice stop at Pigalle? Haa, les p'tites femmes de Paris sont toujours pleines des surprises. Même quand on les appelle monsieur!

I've never been to Retromobile. Last time I went it was the Paris Racing Car Show! We drove down from Wiltshire and back in the day. A very long day....

Must have been the very late 80s or very early 90s. IIRC the next year we flew and satyed overnight.

I remember you're and experienced Paris traveller, Max. Over the years, the autojumble totally disappeared its a shame. Many modern car makers, many good restorers.

What about a beer with John and me this time? I won't suggest anything to Mike! We'll make some selfies…
