Sadly not good for F2 entries....with only 7 entries you start to wonder how long PA will persevere

The HSCC are crowing about the large number of new entries their Formula 2 series has received !

As a regular attendee of Peter Auto events, I have to admit to enjoying them immensely. No one puts on a better show, in my opinion. But when it came to the inclusion of F2, like many others I thought it risky, especially with the HSCC championship already established. I don’t believe PA prop up unprofitable grids for long, so will be interesting to see how this season pans out.....

One point to mention, however, is that they always publish entry lists well in advance (unlike some), and they have usually changed by the start of the meeting!

Totally agree Mike , the rest of Peter Auto's grids are always well supported and varied but the only club I can think of that doesn't post entries are the BARC . It's a great shame that Peter Auto don't venture to the U.K. ( going to Castle Combe and Thruxton is enough of an adventure for me ! ) .

By the way hope I didn't offend with my post about Mark 2 Escorts at Goodwood last week . I was just curious why you had chosen what didn't seem to be an obvious choice of car .

Re: Entry lists, I was comparing PA with people like Masters who are always last minute. Risk with early release is that there could be a lot of changes by the time the event takes place. The Silverstone Classic Programme springs to mind.....

There was mention of PA having a race for their new '2 litre cup' for 911 cars in the UK, but I can't see them ever having a full meeting here. You'll have to spread your wings a bit further- how about Spa in May? Not that far....

I'm pleased the HSCC F2 grid is strong, IMO they deserve the support.

No prob, hope my reasons made sense. It wouldn't have taken much to make it the car a front runner, but it wouldn't have been period correct or compliant with papers...

Appears we’ve got a possible new challenge at a European race meeting- demonstrating locals! Apparently there were several road blocks on major routes and demos in Barca itself last weekend, so fingers crossed they will have calmed down a bit by the time we get there. When passing through the area last October we were warned against stopping overnight there, so kept the hammer down until well past!

Usually it's further North that you expect trouble (I see TGV rail strikes during Le Mans week now being discussed!)..... The Political Situation in Catalunya did put a question mark on this meeting when first added to the provisional calendar last year. Arrest of their ex-leader in Germany a few days ago seems to have stirred it up again.....

We’re lucky Chelsea lost to them recently, otherwise we would be in trouble.....

Well, so far this has to rank as the worst organised race meeting I’ve ever attended! Thursday morning, and we’re not even inside the circuit yet. At the moment approx 20 trucks parked up in a gravel area outside. No loos, no nothing.

Middle of yesterday afternoon the organisers send out an email to suggest we would get in at 6pm- After some of us had already been here 7hrs..... That proved to be ******** anyway, and we’re still waiting......

Whoever is in charge better try a bit harder......
