Yes I am in number 59 which is lucky because I already have that number on my car from the last race I did.

I think Guy is in too.

The weather is looking good for Saturday sunny but only 11 deg's might need thermals if you are watching.

Well done everybody - and I hope you all have a great day.
I would have liked to be there, but was tempted away by the chance of a long weekend on the Cote d'Azur.
Guy, how about a write-up for the club magazine?
Photo's too if possible (Richard?)

I think it's about 10:00 ish, but we will be there from about 8:00 depending on how long it takes to scrape the ice off the car.

It took me half an hour to get the car started this morning with the help of a spare battery, jump leads, charger, hot air gun and WD40. I arrived at about 10:30 just as the lads were queuing up to go out for their practice.
It was an excellent day, though I gather Guy had a spot of bother and couldn't make it. I was drooling over all te superb machinery in the paddock, including loads of AC Aces, Acecas, Cobras and several other models, plus Jags, Bentleys, Frazer-Nashs, BMWs and a sprinkling of single seaters.
In the Mini Marcos class Ollie Howell came first in Granny Smith, with Pete second and Allan third, followed by Rory and then Mike White in the road-going Mk.VI. I hope to have some pics in the Sport Scene section shortly.

Richard,

Thanks for coming down and taking photos.

Ollie was fastest non single seater (he did beat 2 of them!) with a time of 97.9s, I was 4th fastest non-single seater with 100.1s.  Ollies time was faster from a standing start than Rae Davis managed on a flying lap in 2004!

In practice we both did a standing start lap followed by a flying lap, Ollies flying lap was 92.2s and mine was 96.4s   (an average of 93 and 90mph!)

Allan did a 110s, Rory a 112s and Rory's mate a 125s (i think), will update these when the official results come out.

Allan's time was 2s faster than last year, despite some fuel feed problems.

We had a great time beat all the Cobras, E types, Bentley's even a very nice '73 911 2.7RS!.

Will try to put pen to paper for the club mag in the coming weeks.

The AC owners club have invited the Mini Marcos Owners Club to their annual sprint at Goodwood again this year.
It is on Saturday the 7th of November.
Cost is 105
I was there on my own last year, it would be nice to have a few more there this year.
If anyone is interested please let me know.
