Who's car is this, Mike? As the AROC Director with responsibility for Motorsport I'm trying to track every Alfa in competition, so anyone with information on racing Alfas, feel free to keep me posted
Are you aware of Paul Clayson's Grp 1B Alfa GTV6(?)

Further north and west, the second GT race at Oulton Park has been abandoned.

I was at PFI kart track near Newark last three days, nearly stayed overnight until today - so glad I didn't.

All racing abandoned not just the GTs. Sensible.if a shame for the hardy souls who went to watch.

I stand corrected bit I don't recall a season starting like this with so many abandoned meetings. Global warming?

Heard of but haven't seen yet, Peter. David Margailles had his GTV6 out at CTCRC meet a week ago

I saw the GT race had been stopped early.....some mates have been down at Oulton today but I must admit I chickened out when I saw the forecast. The racing has been pretty good until now, though, I believe, and from what I can tell from TSL.

In the 10 years or so since I started racing, I've not had many wet races, although in 2016 we did lose the whole race afternoon at Donington, which was a bit of a pain.....

It's not feeling especially warm around here Peter.

I think the last of the BSB races probably saw a mainly dry track this afternoon and maybe was run in the sunshine that we had for about 15 minutes before the next batch of clouds (now warmer and from the SW) darkened the sky once again.

There may be some H&S/Circuit insurance angles to a lot of this and perhaps the competitors with fairly expensive machines not wishing to risk too much budget this early in the season.

Just catching up, not having been at home for a couple of days. I'm delighted to say it's been a very pleasant weekend here - and that includes the weather! This morning it is a pleasant 13 degrees, sunny with a light breeze.

I’ll fill you in by pm after back from Barca. (BTW Seen 22c this afternoon and not even there yet! ) Sud owner also has in his stable the red 50s shape Guilia saloon that won the St Mary’s Trophy with Richard Meaden driving (last year I think), so you may have his name already? That Sud was a race car from new, some ‘Trofeu’ series in the 70s, not sure if in Italy or......

Update- see page 172 of May ‘Motorsport’ mag......

Ah - Geoff Gordon, then.....I think the Trofeo Sud series was an Italian one, and also in Holland IIRC. Thanks, Mike

Enjoy Barca!

Also in Germany - it's where Gerhard Berger (amongst others) began his racing career. I remember seeing them race at a Hockenheim F2 meeting. I even have a few models - mostly Solido - of various cars, both the original Sud Ti's & subsequent Sprint's.

Wasn't the official name Trofeo de Europa or something like that? We had this with R5 turbo and Alpine too. Great battles everywhere! Renault is supposed to do it again with the new A110.
