356sc should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Honest answer is we are not really sure….there are long sections where to get a quick (for us anyway!) time we are putting huge loads through transmission, eg quick section after turn 1, hairpin and last bend, we are pretty much flat (and sideways!).

But given we have broken a drive shaft, stripped 1st gear, and lost a tooth out of the crown wheel all at Dijon, and we have only ever had these failures at Dijon, something is clearly happening…or maybe we are just very unlucky!

Nothing to do with luck, we all know that. May be an acceptable solution would be either renew the transmission components before Dijon or soften the lsd settings just for this track. I remember you use all your speeds including the first one (me too when its a 4 speed gearbox).

What is weird is that we have a lot of issues with the MX gearboxes but only at Magny, the reason being escalading the kerbs constantly and brutaly…

Would be easy with a conventional arrangment of transmission but I remember your gearbox/cwp is in the same case which acts like a chassis crossmember… Tricky!

Sadly yes…not the best design for racing purposes….I wonder if we could get HTPs if we flipped the engine and gearbox round the other way and had a mid-engined 356

Dare! Did you already test a 904 GTS? This is a fantastic car and the chassis balance is second to none.

Very grippy/abrasive surface combined with Avons? Tyre wear is/was high there, which may be related?

Group C Entry

Note also the Matra has been withdrawn because the owner doesn't fancy racing it against modern recreations.

Iain and his co-driver Lambert doing well in Q of the 3 Hour, first MG B if I'm correct. All other B's are far behind. A lot of YF and reds probably because some showers.

I remember wondering about the lap time of a B vs a MX5 1,6, the Jap car is faster by 3/4 sec.
