eamonn ledwidge should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Me too, but with respect it's a bit off the Spa Ardennes Challenge topic.

I have entered the Challenge for 10 years now and it's been running for at least 15, despite someone's post of FB yesterday announcing that it's a new race!. It has run to several configurations, 1hr, 1 1/2 hrs and more recently 2 x 40 mins races over 2 days - that seems to suit most entrants.

The Challenge attracts an eclectic grid, it's great value for money and any dedicated clubman racer considering it should just get their entries in and give it a try.

I am just teasing. You know i love the 9S. Just cant affird one.
As i have said, i have no wish to race in a mixed grid, but some do, and not all Caterhams are modern. Restrict to h patten boxes, pre Signa/ Duratec and original induction and you have cars the same technology as others on the grid, but as slippery as a brick.
It just seems odd that one particular car is excluded when it could comply with the regs to the same extent as others that are allowed.

Andy, the list of eligible cars is not comprehensive and over the years there have been many other sports racers in the Challenge. Only reason the Crossle is mentioned is that we go as a group under the CRDC banner, simples.

Guess what, mine is road registered - 66 WW 507. !!!!!

Completely agree; not having an FIA HTP car and therefore not being able to get a race on the Nordschleife, Spa is one of the must-do's of my year.

I had a chat to CSCC and they very graciously said they would let me in to their Interseries race. The 2 race per year rule does apply but as I had raced with them before (albeit many years ago) and therefore, they knew my driving standards were up to scratch, they would look favourably on me doing Spa if I could perhaps do another round too? So its either CSCC or Ardennes.....we will have to toss a coin! Either way, boat and tunnel booked, Spa here we come.

We're still working on the Bertone to enter the Ardennes if acceptable but what is weird for a car from here is to be fully compliant with no HTP! Unless many of our "friends"… Wont be competitive with Falkens but we have many on the shelf.

SamBinfield should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Had an email the other day from Equipe Classic Racing announcing that they will have a grid(s?) at the Summer Classic:




"We have confirmed two races at Spa as part of the Spa Summer Classic weekend on June 29/30. Although we are obviously sorry to see the Silverstone GP circuit go, Spa is a tremendous circuit and this is a great opportunity for us.


We will have a 30-minute qualifying and two 40-minute put stop races on this most iconic of tracks for 750 Euros



All entries will be accepted."




Not entirely clear yet if this is for GTS, Pre '63, or both combined, but have asked for clarification.

Thanks Sam. The races are presumably to replace those at cancelled MGLive?

It looks to be that way - whether they were intended as a replacement or just subject to fortunate timing I'm not sure.


It has been confirmed that both GTS and Pre 63 cars will be eligible, so I would conclude that they are combined grids. Looks like we may well be entering the Equipe races with the Jag and the Three Hours with the Gilbern.

Err, no! Must be included in The Ardennes Challenge or the CSCC Classic. Unfortunately EGTS website doesn’t mention which.....

Well there you go. Sounds like miscommunication there. It needs to be sorted
