Yes, Zakspeed.....guilty as charged. But as you posted I was just in the process of writing an email to the British team captains.馃槆

"Dear British Slotrace friends

First of all, it was so good to see you all in Derby last weekend, it was so good to have the 9th edition of the DiSCA Le Mans 24hrs back...and what a 24hrs it has been.
I really enjoyed it.

Secondly, with the LM24 now behind us it's time to move on with the preparations for the next international DiSCA event.
Time to "reload" the postponed Suzuka Double Digital now scheduled for May 14-15 in Best, The Netherlands.

Preparations for the LM 24hrs had kept me rather busy, but the main reason why I have not posted updates was because I was waiting for positive news concerning the EU travel ban for non EU citizens. (read UK citizens)
So I'm most happy to be able to send you this update.
As of March 23, 2022 UK citizens can enter/travel to the EU if they are fully vaccinated, Quarantine period and negative test are no longer required. The only thing you need is a (Digital) proof of Vaccination.

Check: Advice | Quarantine Travelcheck | Rijksoverheid.nl.

Some of you have kept their entries and entry fees alive awaiting this news, some may want to re enter, some may want to do so with different team compositions, cars or classes.
I will do my best to make everybody happy and help out wherever I can. Please do contact me via mail or app if you have questions and/or need more information.

Sunday evening April 10th I will post more information."

With kind regards

Dear Team Captains
Via this post a firm confirmation that the Suzuka Double Digital event will take place on the previously announced date of May 14-15, 2022.
With all DutchGov Covid related restrictions now lifted, there are no longer any restraints to organise the full Suzuka Double Digital event as we've all become accustomed to.
Which will include Free practice on Friday May 13th, GT3 racing & WEC Practice followed by the usual Saturday Evening diner at the local "chinaman" on Saturday May 14th and on Sunday 15th of May the 6hrs WEC race.

Final confirmation for the Suzuka Double Digital
Those of you that have entered a team for the original Januari race date and paid your entry fees, its been two months, and now we've got just 5 weeks left till the event.
It's very well possible that there have been changes to your team composition, the car, its drivers, possibly even the participation of the whole team.
So I would like to request all of you to inform us with any changes compared to your original entry...and with the bars and restaurants re-opened in Holland...if you (still) want to have dinner with us

Corona/Covid19
Although the number of Covid 19 cases in the Netherlands is still going down it's not gone completely. Proper Hygienic precautions are still advisable, better safe than sorry.
So the Organisation will provide disinfectant hand gel and ensure proper ventilation of the club room. In addition everybody's free to complement these measures by wearing a face mask, keeping distance etc. etc.
As a club we are no longer required to check for proof of vaccination, that is now a responsibility for the individual participants.
But...I think it's more than obvious that should you develop symptoms indicative of Covid during the weekend, you do a self test and in case of a positive result do not proceed to the event.
Should your team composition run into trouble (less than 3 drivers) contact us a.s.a.p via the app so we can see if we can help you out.

Travel to SRC Eindhoven on Friday
As of March 23, 2022 The EU allows Non Eu citizens to enter/travel to the EU if they are fully vaccinated, Quarantine period and negative test are no longer required. The only thing you need is a (Digital) proof of Vaccination.
Check: Advice | Quarantine Travelcheck | Rijksoverheid.nl.
If you plan to fly in on Friday afternoon please do inform us of your Flight nummer and arrival time so we can arrange a shuttle to the club as usual.
The club will open from 14:30 till 21:30 for free practice

Team Ford Racing, formerly Corvette Racing (can't deny, I'm a blue oval fanboy), is starting final body preparations for the next test session and race. Chassis is already up to scratch and has proven it's worth.
Now hand me the silicone 馃槀

Hi everyone
If there鈥檚 anyone attending with all of the available Sideways GT cars, or NSR McLaren, please could you bring them (for one day at least) so I can assess them for the DiSCA database?
Thanks!

Thank God I'm currently in the final stages of paint with this Ford GT. It's been a hefty few weeks since it left the mould. Decalset that didn't fit as it should had me revert to brush painting (windows and lighting had already been fitted for the last testday).
Just a few days to finish decals and clearcoat the thing...
