  Le Mans 2004
What a fantastic sight it is going to be on Saturday June 12th 2004. We already have 36 cars signed up and paid for and a few more waiting in the wings - but they had better be quick !
  Not since 1990 have spectators had the opportunity to see such a large group of these fabulous cars from possibly the best modern sportscar era.

A very welcome addition to out ranks in 2004 is Charlie Agg with his Nissan R90CK which ran at Le Mans in 1990 driven by Bailey, Brundell and Brancatelli.

16 April 2004 Silverstone Test Day

  Neil Clark and Ian Stinton testing the two EMKA Aston Martins and by the end of the day putting extremely repectable times.

Neil Clark surprised himself and had a great time without having to change gear all the time. You can't beat litres !

  Justin Law/Henry Pearman completed a successful test session in Henry's XJR11.

Jim Graham. Managed to get the engine working really well and sorted the VERY lively back end. Just the brake balance to tweak, ready for Le Mans.

  Henry Pearman ran well until a familiar mystery cut-out. As Jim Graham can confirm, some Porsche secrets are difficult to crack !

Richard Bateman and David Mercer working together to get the very best out of the extremely smart (open rear wheeled) Tiga for the 2004 season.

1st April 2004 Silverstone Test Day

  David Mercer shaking down his very fast and well developed C1 Spice for the first race at Spa. Sadly, not able to join us at Le Mans.

Molly Mercer. Ace pit crew and overall manager keeping the lad upto speed.

  The Don Law Team battling against the elements - cold and windy !

Linzi Smart, Justin Law, Don Law and John Grant (and mystery man?)

  Don Grice very cautiously finding his way in the newly aquired (ex Randall) Porsche 962, formerly run by Erwin Kremer.

Don Grice, new member, BMW saloon racer enjoying the moment when Jim confirmed the entry fee for Le Mans !!
The club welcomes Don to the gang.

Group C/GTP Racing 'Return' to Le Mans - 12/13 June 2004

Lovers of the fantastic 'Group C' period will be thrilled to hear that Group C/GTP Racing, the club running these cars in Europe, has teamed up with Motor Racing Legends to run a race on the Saturday morning of the main race at Le Mans in June 2004.

The race is for 40 cars (+ 4 reserves) with one driver of a maximum of 40 minutes duration, (no refuelling) allowing for wheels/tyres to be changed in the event of a late weather change.

As with all Group C/GTP Racing events, entry is by invitation and will be restricted to members who raced in 2003 plus those who have already requested an invitation to run their cars in the 2004 season of individual races.
There will an exciting mix of period cars from the Group C and GTP / IMSA family and is likely to include Aston Martin AMR1, Argo, Bardon, Ecosse, EMKA, Jaguar, Lancia, Nissan, Porsche, Spice, Tiga.

A great spread of the finest period cars from 1984 to 1993 are expected and the sight of 40 of these cars will undoubtedly re-ignite the enthusiasm felt by so many who followed the cars in period, from the famous front runners to the smaller, semi-private teams.

We can't wait to see the grid line up! Photo of the year?
