Spa Summer Classic 14/15 June

Well seeing as some peeps are going and it looks like a good meeting, I thought we'd open up the discussion.

I guess most folks are already on their way so this'll no doubt be for reports. However suffice to say I'm not going due to work.

A bit of a low key day today, something is missing at Spa. The paddock seems to be a bit too empty to my liking, the races are not overly subscribed.
There was even one 61' race with only 19 starters.

The Top Hat race was one of the better races of the day, along with the first F2 race.

Lets hope for a better day tomorrow.

Believe it or not Terry, I honestly think that was the problem.

Weather wasn't too bad, dry yesterday and today, albeit very windy. Overall the same thing as yesterday, some of the races weren't too bad, but not enough cars.
Pre66 F1 were great, Juniors not too bad either, but more like: a car, 3 second gap, another car, 3 second gap...

The 100 mile race was marred after a few laps by a huge crash on the old start-finish; 2 German Porsche 911s tangled and caused a big mess. Oil, parts and debris everywhere, even one complete engine was found near the grandstand. Both drivers fortunately okay though, a bit shaken and stirred.

Another big one in the 4 hour on the Kemmel straight, again caused by two German drivers. Sounds a bit familiar, doesn't it?

Shaun Lynn (GT40) led from start to almost finish, crawled to a halt (empty tank ?) near Stavelot with a few hundred metres to go. From what we heard over the radio they still got the win (haven't checked RIS yet).
Great race as well by Hadfield and Delta (great to meet the man).

Overall not a bad weekend, but it seems it needs (more of) the 10-10ths gang.

It was good to meet up with Eddy V (I was helping Delta). I'm glad to hear that the two Porsche drivers are ok. It was a surreal moment seeing one of them fly over the other and slam into the wall of the grandstand. He was very lucky to miss the steel steps. As Eddy said, there was wreckage everywhere, and it was quite alarming to see one of the drivers receiving what looked like emergency medical attention on the circuit. The cars ahead of the shunt were picked up by the safety car, which then had to lead them through the pitlane. It was a couple of laps before the cars behind the accident were able to join the train.

The marshals did a superb job in clearing up the debris in well under half an hour, and as Delta himself can confirm, the medical crews at Spa are excellent.

Alan,when you say "helping",was that explaining what Yellow flags mean?

No, no, Alan was really helping.
With the fridge and everything that was in there.

Good to meet you as well Alan, wanted to come back after the race, but a friend called me that there was a big traffic jam starting to build up on the motorway. So off I went.

Esper, I think RIS hasn't found a 2008 button yet.
