Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Thanks Peter. It was obvious that the FIA should "open the doors" it was only a matter of time. Good news for some while the other will say "bother" or "WTF" as on usual!
I would say that now I will select the organiser more carefully (bad luck in France we have only one) and try to discuss with being more involved. Quite interesting!

Ahh, over two years later, we've finally got a finished engine....

Which means we're up and running again with the Celica...which means we're hitting the HTP again.
Before we do, I'm wondering whether there's been any advancement in the way the FIA are viewing the so called Group 1.5 cars of the BSCC that ran during the 70s and very early 80s?
For instance, with the Celica we have a very standard Homologation form that has no mention of the tubular exhaust manifold and Weber carbs that we know it ran in period.

App J permitted those modifications. If you have a period photograph of the engine bay then it will assist. My Rover was one of the first to receive the HTP for group 1.5 and I used pics to demonstrate the carb set up.

As Peter says, like most things to do with HTPs, it will be up to you to prove that the mods were used.

Thanks gents....so just to get things straight....if, for instance, you were building a car to conform to the 1980 Touring Car regs (which are detailed in the Blue Book) and you wanted to run, and HTP the car with, a tubular manifold...
...you look at Section 4 (f) and it says "The exhaust manifold system is free after the manifold gasket".....you've STILL got to prove it ran with one.
Would this be a fair summary?

All modifications will have to be detailed, I suggest and before you start the true HTP process, that you put a file together that matches the year of specification you are to claim with photographic evidence, period press articles if any and so on.

Modern testimonies may be considered but are of a lesser value according to the rulebook.

Yeah, thanks Joe.....believe it not, there seems to be many more photographs of the Bellett that did just a few laps of qualifying in a single race 15 years previous to the Celica doing a whole series.

Which leads me on to a request.....as Duddha suggests....is there anyone on the forum who might have information or photos of either of the Hughes of Beaconsfield Celicas during their BSCC campaign in 1979 or 80? Or maybe point me in the right direction.
Meanwhile, I'm off to start preparing my Autozam AZ-1, can you have the engine finished by December Joe?
