IMPORTANT FACTS
:: The circuit of Spa is only 300 kms (186 miles) from Calais.
:: The entry fee for spectators is just 10 Euro for the three days.
:: Children under 12 years old enter for free.

Now that is what I call family friendly pricing!
The people at the Nürburgring should take an example at that!

Wim - lost all your cool pic of Tusc / griff can you send to me again - PC died and had to be rebuilt! Backing up regularly - likley sent most to the Gaffer (father for accessment!) but just so I have them.

Seeing Steve Wattons up close (not racing!) for detailed pics soon too.

Cheers Jelly

With almost 700 superb historic cars on track over the weekend, no other meeting in the world can match the atmosphere of seeing such machinery take that awe-inspiring run down from La Source to Eau Rouge!

The very best historic racing, combined with great food, local beer and genial hospitality — all set among the stunning scenery of the Ardennes — makes for the best weekend in the historic racing calendar.


All true, not sure about the great food though

Looking forward to Spa '07 already. I've a feeling 2007 will be a brilliant year

I'd do that if I just knew what pics you mean exactly?
(actually I'm quite sleepy now, so maybe I remember tomorrow...)

I really can't remember. The only pics I ever made of a TVR were from a blue 2500M.
Dink made lots of the Sagaris, and that's actually all I have

Aha - light dawn another Wim with an Early Tuscan (the stretch Original Griff type). No worries.

Since Bert is coming along to Spa - actually we'll arrive in his 206 GTi - that can easily be arranged:

Dink - Joe Hendo is not doing this year (in US with CSCC). I am aiming for it next year. Loads of the Mogs from the ThoroughbredSportscars.com series will be there though (clashes with our last round = so I might be able to finish a few places high at that!).
