    Do we know if the URD ford GT is eligible or just the s397 content? Just read the rules. No.

    Indeed, no promises of course, but past history tells me we normally have three drop outs and often several "no shows"

    I’ve been doing lots of racing in the Oreca 07 recently so would have been keen on this event, however Friday nights is one of the nights I work my evening job so not this time :(

    Have fun anyway :)
