Robert Farrell should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
2014

News from Peter Auto as published in the French Motoring press.
Forgive the translation.
There was talk, it's now confirmed: organizer of the biggest French historical events, Peter Auto acquired the Golden Age Grand Prix but will no longer be in charge of the Grand Prix de Pau Historique (or 'modern' GP). After three years of collaboration, Patrick Peter and the ASAC Basco Béarnais decided (by consensus, dixit the press release) not to renew their contract for 2014. The ASAC Basco Béarnais remains only at the controls for the 'modern' GP (9-11 may 2014) and the GP history (17-18 may). Two new events will come to expand the Peter Auto calendar, in different registers: the Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille (6-7 September, competition combining automotive, design, fashion, luxury and art of living * la française) and the Roll'n Start Cup (28 September, competition reserved for energy recovery vehicles). The major milestones of the historic season will be of course to go, of the Tour Auto with ten thousand tours, by the way, this year Le Mans Classic. Note finally that the Mugello circuit will take over of Imola for the Italian 'Classic' round and a series dedicated to passenger cars (initiated at Spa Classic this year) will see the day, under the name Heritage Touring Cup (Mugello, Dijon, Spa and Le Castellet).

7-12 April: Tour Auto Optic 2000 - April 25-27: Mugello Classic - 16-18 may: Spa Classic - June 6-8: Grand Prix of the Golden Age in Dijon - 4-6 July: Le Mans Classic - 7 September: Chantilly Arts and Elegance Richard Mille - September 28: Roll'n Start Cup in Paris - October 3-5: the ten thousand rounds of Castellet

Simon, if it's the same as the event at Spa this year it will be for pre 66, pre 80 and pre 90 IIRC. Covering Gp 2, Gp 1, Gp 2(70s) and Group A. Agreed, it would be interesting to get some clarification of this.

Peter Auto taking over Dijon L'Age d'Or is interesting. (But with Louis Q now working for them not surprising.) This year it was a Masters benefit that resulted in Carol Spragg and others starting the Dijon Motors Cup to get their grids to the wonderful circuit. So with PA filling their event with own grids, will Masters go back, and where will Lurani and HGPCA finish up?

My belief is that next year the PA Touring cars (4 meetings) is intended to be for Gps 1&2 and earlier A. But we will see...

More interesting proposals. "Pre `63 GT" series amalgamating with some "Sixties Endurance" races. "U2TC" to join certain Peter Auto touring car grids and the "1000km" series to link with the "CER" series.
Considering the Paul Ricard "Sixties Endurance" grid was oversubscribed and combined with the fact that 2014 is a LMC year. I would imagine there are going to be some very full "Sixties Endurance" grids up to July 2014.
2014 is going to fascinating.
I can`t wait to see the calendars of other series who run European events.

Mr Farrell asked me join in for some precisions about 2014 and what we will be doing.

In fact, we took over the Grand Prix de l'Age d'Or from my father Patrick Quiniou.

We're looking forward to working with some of the "old boys" of the Grand Prix de l'Age d'Or and this is being discussed at the moment.

2014 being the 50th anniversary of the event it will look good and I should work on that !

Regarding our touring car grid, to be named "Heritage Touring Cup" for Grp. 1/Grp. 2 and Group A from the 1966-1984 period.

3 dates, Spa, Dijon, Castellet. Spa will be a "special" with 2 races (day & night) and the others to be on a 1 hour race format.

All heritage touring cup is being discussed and put together at the moment.

Regarding Carol Spagg, discussions are taking place.

I'll confirm everything when I have all answers.

If you have questions, please ask.

PS : Regarding Touring Cars, help is welcome for the regulations if you have any advice to give.

post 66 - that is me out of the equation!
Seems to me the main problem with Pre 63 merging with PA is the requirementto get an internaional licence. Everything else a clubbie des (inc the Spa 6 Hour) you can do on a Nat A or is that all changing next year?

I think the 'International Historic' licence is acceptable?

not as I read it.... reckon an ECG is required and bit more folding to MSA. Out of interest it seems Carol was softening us up for a price hike - how much more do PA charge to the other series?

THe Spa classic double header was cheaper than U2TC . . . and we did it with Nat A pieces of expensive plastic.

Int C / Int Historic are the same thing are they not? I had an Int C for a few years until 2011, let it slip as unnecessary.

I believe, and it needs checking, that the FIA has sanctioned that unless you have an international licence you can't race outside of your own country, which is Simon's point. We discussed this elsewhere that this may be a contravention of the free movement principles of the EU.

So I would need an international to race at Mondello? or Phoenix Park in Dublin? if I was running with a Nat A at Kirkistown?
