LeMans (loosely) through the decades!

29th June will be our second "Special" night of the year.

We will run a normal 4-class race night for LeMans cars from various eras.

1. 50s & early 60s - the era of front engine GT & Sports cars. Cobras Jags Ferraris etc.

2. Mid 60s to mid 70s - the era of the mid-engined prototypes - from GT40s through Porsche 9**s to Matras and Alfas.

3. Mid 70s to Late 80s - the "Group" era. Group C, Group 5, Group 6

4. 90s to Now - Everything from the McLaren F1 GTR to the latest prototypes.

It's a fun night so we won't get too hung up on rules or how "standard" Tim's car was when he bought it

and it won't count towards the yearly championship, so lets see some different cars to the normal fare.

Before you do your list Jim, my "Kremer" was a mirage - in fact a Mirage Gr8.

8 of us arrived for the second "Special" night of 2017 - an homage to the recently run LeMans 24 hour race.

Four classes based on eras of race car technology since 1950.

Class 3 - 1975-1990 the "Group" era, 5,6 & C

Class 4 - 1990 on the modern era.

Some cars were allowed to race even though they never actually ran - as long as they were "of the type".
