A first for a French organisation, PA ready to announce rev limitations via the same MSD box already in use in the Masters series. Cobras et Shelby 350 maximum limit 6 800 rpm. Taxes included…

It will be interesting to see how the ‘2 Litre Cup’ 911s lap times compare with previous. I’ve heard that some engine builders / preparers are hard at work ensuring that valve sizes, ignition etc are per regulations before the engines are sealed.....

Mike, one of my bloke asked for a quote to some famous engine builder. I had to ask him to repeat, not only because I'm old but because of the number. 100 k€ let you either voiceless or expecting for great power figures. For obvious reasons you can't achieve the same bench results for a 2 litre than for a Carrera 6, first being the later had twin spark heads… Sorry for off topic! By the way, it seems you should add some taxes to this. Please dont send me to "the" other thread, Mike……

Somewhat surprised that PA is just targeting Cobras and Mustangs....I would have thought some other popular types might have been “looked at”.

Either way with the regs knobbling the competition expect to see a little 356 on the front row after quali.....

Will……… no-one is targeted, of course. Just a bet, PA people dont read all the threads here. When they will, may be TVR's will be added to the list! Shhhh, keep our secret… public! With the 2.0 L Cup, I understand you miss some people to humiliate in your category.

Of course having engines checked and sealed is a fantastic move forward. Together with checking the syncs in the gearbox with an endoscope. Weight tunnel is good too. What else? Something I've been asking for, track and wheelbase. May be they'll discover that some SWB are not so short, kind of S1,5WB?

Guys, I can see you are having fun but, for the record, track was measured at the first 2 Litre Cup round last season. For those of you that don't actually compete in the series - ie all of you - it's more closely scrutineered than most

You’re quite right, Robert, none of us other posters race in the 2 litre Cup. You are the man!

A bit of generalisation in one or two recent posts, I think, but we’re happy to be corrected and get more insight from those directly involved. May bump into you (figuratively speaking) at the first race in Spain!

We are just jealous that we didn’t get an invite...

The timetable was issued on 17th jan, which is mighty impressive compare with most organisers!

Only problem being that busy time the event starts we’ll be on version 12.5.....

You’ll find that timetables for the other meetings are also on the website, and also dated Jan 17th.

Most had at least 8 to 10 versions.Any ideas why this happens,more suitable for a certain class,length of sessions,off track stuff or later announcements.

Its all well and good announcing it early if it doesnt change or at the most a small amount but as you say it is good planning.Be interesting to say Grp C and GEal entries after last years grids which for both were excellent.For th3 former maybe due to Le Mans,hope not...

It’s usually non racing stuff like demos and parades that upset the proposed timetable. Then sometimes there’ll be a few minutes ‘tweak’ somewhere that will require a new version, and very occasionally a couple of races could swap places. Even something like a change of time for one drivers briefing requires a new version.

So you get the PA approach, announce very early and risk changes, or get the opposite (no names ) where it’s not apparent until the last minute. And still get changes.
