Thanks Peter. Seems the ever more congested UK calendar is still causing some issues for organisers, and we’re still waiting for MRL and GTSCC. It’s pretty much a given that the latter will be at Donington HF in May and Portimao at the end of Oct, but there’s two more races to fit somewhere! MG Live would be a good fit for one of them, both date wise and circuit.....

Ah, I don’t expect many of the GTSCC regulars will be racing (or spectating for that matter) at the moderne 24 heures.....

But you may be visiting La Sarthe?

Has to be done! I’ve been twice, first time as a very casual spectator en route to further south. Not a good way to do it! Second time was when helping a mate in the MRL race. Pee’d down, freezing cold and didn’t get any sleep (was in his Dastle in the paddock....), but enjoyed the pits atmosphere. Graham Turner was there with his 917 on the Gulf stand, so I got to spend a bit of time in more comfort, thanks to him!

Some of the cars I saw racing the first time I went (1991) now compete at the Classic...

Had a couple of very enjoyable years there working for Audi on press stuff but haven't been since 2006, the same year I last went to the Classic.

For what's it's worth, I live almost exactly halfway between LM & Snetterton!

1991 !!!! What a sheila you are… You can't imagine the atmosphere we had in the '70s. Try to get some pictures of the "coursives", behind the stands. They were briefly spotted in Mc Queen's movie. Imagine the Matra's singing in the Hunaudičres long straight, at night and WOT by pack of two, like mermaids gliding in the air… Unforgettable fantasy. Literally hairy.

I waited until they'd built the new pits! The sound of the Corvettes thundering between the pits & stands was quite impressive.

We went back to our B&B in town for a few hours but I remember laying awake listening to the Mazda...

Interesting! I was reading somewhere recently about the death of it two or three years ago due to lack of entries, so wonder what’s changed?

Well, Oldtimer doesn’t clash with anything.....

Yes sir! We do have a sound specialist here. A great majority of people will tell you how awful the Mazda sound was. But when they came back, and won, with the supercharged four barrels engine, yes the song was comparable to the last version of the Matra V12 (not so good as previous). I'm bluffed, its the first time I meet someone saying that. Bravo Monsieur, vous avez de l'oreille.
