In in huge field full of angry V8s it was easily the loudest and most vicious! 8)

that is absolutely amazing news. well done fella! i am hoping to be there for the 2010 event.

just a quick question though, as the cars are period race prepped, does that include the safety equipment too or do cages and harnesses have to be up to current FIA spec?

Everything safety wise has to be current

It was quite funny at last years classic. the officials were unhappy about some of the mounting points of the cages in certain cars- the answer was to remove the cage and re submit without one! Yes no cage at all was deemed safer than one fitted not within the letter of the law- only the French bless em!

Spa race is in October I think and should be a blast- its tough on cars and drivers but what a race.

More news to follow soon- lots happening today. Thanks for all your support and good wishes.

I think a retrobike sticker would be cool on the car- I'll put one on my helmet too to match my bike lid :lol: I'll put RB down as an official partner when we build the website next month. What about giving the Monkey of Hope a few laps?

Cheers
Si
