Cheers

Derek has not made his mind up yet, due to his ongoing problems with a bad leg flying is difficult for him, he will decide nearer the time.

Hotel booked thanks Franco

BTW Franco, would I be correct in saying that this is open to all Italian racing cars, i.e. Sports cars and F1/Indy cars?

Hi guys,

My cars are just about ready. Are the controller plugs the same as the ones we used in Turin? I also can't remember how they're wired up.

See you Friday.

Cheers

John

I got home at 03.00 this morning after an extremely enjoyable weekend.

A massive thank you to all for all the hard work preparing the track, organising the racing and making sure we were well fed. The racing was great and I felt that I was driving well. I believe I was the first hard body car in 1:24. Next time I'll spend more time on the concours side of things.


See you in Bordeaux.

Cheers

John
