Well the meeting benefits from all the advantages that Combe offers, and all the disadvantages that Combe offers.......

After Spa the car entered for Combe GTSCC is currently away having attention to its bodywork, and the alternative, the 6hr car, currently has no carbs..... So watch this space for which gets race ready first! One nuisance is that whichever is going to Portugal for the last GTSCC race will need to be leaving a few days after Combe. So better not need too much work!

Nope. My thumbprint no longer activates the ĎTouch IDí on certain devices. Think Iíve worn too much skin away.....

So itís the +4 for GTSCC at Combe. Hopefully the carburettor issues that were suffered at Spa (while they were fitted on the other car) are sorted. If there is still a problem, better to find out at CC in a 60 minute race than after transporting the car to the Algarve for a 120 minute one.....

That's a bit logical Mike.


We don't want too much of that around here - it might be catching!

Think I may have to plead not guilty to that. We used Cortinas, it was Thruxton used Sierras.

It was a long time ago, some of the latest "classic" grids were current - aaagh!

Hope the current BBC weather forecast is wrong or it will be three wet classics in a row.

Mmm, didnít really want to know that! Brands Hatch two weeks ago was bearable because we were in garages, but no such luxury this weekend. Wellies and umbrella at the ready......

If you think Iím taking a 16.5 metre artic to Combe with one car for one day, youíve got another think coming! Just the difference in fuel cost will pay for one night in the local Premier, and probably supper as well.

Forecast is now even worse- heavy rain all day.......

Forecast was right Healeys in the rain are a sight to see.
Thankfully I managed to park at Tower so we can watch the races in comfort.
