Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The pre-66 one hour race just ended so results are TBC. It gives Thomas/ Lockie Falcon, Korsten Mustang, Martin/ Soper Cortina. I imagine an epic battle for the podium, the Cortina was second when the race had only 4 minutes to go, fighting against Hamilton's Falcon to the very last seconds. First Mini is Bell/ Ferguson which probably started from the pits having recorded no lap time during Q. Andrew Lawley and his GTA could not finish unfortunately.
I guess we'll see the same competitors at Magny-Cours during the GP de France Historique.

There si something I can't understand with the live timing. See the live page. Up right you have the official time which is ok the count is ok but count down shows strange things like a "floating" second. Anyone can explain this please?

Just had a scan through all the results. Bit of an eye opener to see the biggest starting grid was HF1! (Ignoring, for the sake of clarity, the Dutch entries in other races.)

The first Masters meeting at Imola last year was not well supported either, and that was a month later than this one, so maybe it’s just too early for some UK based folk to be trapesing across Europe?

Off topic, but- Interesting that at Barcelona this weekend, the 60s Endurance has ‘only’ 44 cars entered, whereas CER1 has 50. That’s not the normal way round....

First race of the season. Deep south of France. Brexit. Many discovered the Ricard ad it seems they did appreciate their venue. If the pre-66 was moderately supported (compared to HTC or U2TC) the battles must have been fantastic. And Steve S remains a top notch competitor. La qualité était bien présente, les absents ont peut être eu tort… I guess the French organiser is working hard on an English version of the race reports. Personally I do like to read from Henk, so looking forward.
