Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
5th overall, 4th in class could have been 4 and 3rd, Romain being so close! At last a checkered flag with no issue. Did you enjoy it, Mike?

One more lap, Gerard, and it could have been 4th!

Great weekend, and have to say that the circuit and staff seem to be more welcoming and accommodating than they used to be. And to come away with those results, we canít help but be happy!

What happened to your mate Claude in his Escort? I saw him pull into the pits....

Yes, I saw you were at Romain's door! In this category under 2 litre, the lap times are really close and the competition is really hard. We use to say so to flatter people, but its a matter of fact this time.

Claude is insisting on getting as much HP running on carbs as with injection. If you know the Escort batch, and I'm sure you do know it quite well, there are not less than 4 or 5 ex-Claude's cars on the grid. And they are doing better than this one, bought in hurry in England, built for rallye. That's why I didn't want to co-drive it. It was bought "better than new" but they already rebuilt it three times. In addition, his team mate is not as fast as him. The poor results speak for themselves.

May be the staff realizes that they have to be friendly to keep on attracting people who have to cross The Channel!!

Not able to race, Jean Marc made some coaching for one of his friends. First race for the guy, no more room in Sixties for his Giulia then sent in HTC, TC1 class. They were only 3 in this class and the guy managed to finish with a really old girl out of breath. His first brass ring made him happy!
