Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Correct! Thats why when my mates say PA is expensive I dont agree. All put together not a bargain but worth imho. Visit nice tracks is good too.

Good grid for HF1.

GT40 isn’t normally eligible for GD, but is for NKHTGT, hence you’ll notice in a GTP class. GD and the Touring car grids are considerably boosted by the inclusion of the Dutch series cars, luckily.

Why the comment regarding that driver in a T70?

He's been very quick in a B8 and in modern GT3 (got pole at one of the VLN races.Will be good to see him race something quicker in historics.

Also be interesting to see how the Group C car compares with the more modern prototypes.

Agree good grid for the F1 especially when a few regulars are absent including CTL. I was going to go but it looked a pain to get to for just a short weekend.

With Nic Minassian driving the AMR 1 I could see him winning!

Different times and conditions Mike, also different Directors.

Patrick Quiniou was the first to get Paul Ricard re-opened for historic cars and the conditions were at the time very special, hence the price of garages, additional badges or the mandatory catering and so on. Public was not even allowed back then and they could only get in if buying specific tickets and catering altogether.

Patrick Peter got there a few years later, got over the other Patrick and in the same fashion he has done for his other meetings, negotiated everything but also the Director had changed, the circuit was now willing to bring-in the public and things got off a different way for him.

I quite remember this weekend too! All started with closed gates even for the organisation… Then we had software issues, one list showing first name first the other last name first and nothing compatible of course. We had to ask many competitors if they had paid their entry fee… Too happy to deal with fair people. I remember the refueling too… rock'n roll style!
Everything has change as you say nothing is comparable. Being on the official list you'll see how it works today. Enjoy your weekend all.

Referencing 'Luckily' Part.

Having looked at the entries I cant help but notice the rather poor entries for the Sports and GT race.I don't know why that could be.Its a modern track that Masters hasn't been to in a while.The similar meeting for PA regularly gets upwards of 50 cars.I note though that PA attracts more Euro drivers than Masters but if it werent for the Dutch vistors it would be quite a poor entry even though on the Masters Website it says that spaces would be in high demand.This is unforntuantely apart from Spa,Silverstone is another Masters meet with quite low numbers of entries which is a little concerning.Anyway anyone going?

As ever with my info please feel free to correct any info on what I've said.👍

The pré 66 grid Qualy is over. Results show seven yank tanks ahead with one Cortina -Martin/Soper- being forth. The first GTA is 9. Second Cortina is 12th, seven seconds slower than the English one. 21 cars classified one DNS (Mini Cooper).

The Watson/O Connell car 3 seconds quicker than the likes of Calum Lockie in the B8 part,Crikey.

Looks like a good race with the Pole in Sportcars normally doing PA events.
