I will put the server up later tonight after club racing is over. Easy car fro the... 80s I think. Very easy track - Le Mans '66 before they put in chicanes. 300 kmh top end, but a largely straight track. :)

Early 80s. Rondeau was a local of La Sarthe who went to Le Mans and built his own weird looking cars - he even won one year.

One of his contraptions is in the Le Mans museum:

Been in two minds about this combo but numbers are low so I'll jump in and trot around down the back.
Add me Denis.

It's quite a fun car to drive once you dial out the turn in understeer, and the car is fairly predictable on turn in. Braking is a bit of an adventure.

I love this circuit. I mean I love everything about Le Mans anyway, but this version of the track is just really rewarding to drive. The row of trees as you come out of Tetre Rouge would catch your attention, as would the White House corner.

Can't make this one but I should be able to start racing again next Thursday because I now have high speed ....stable internet .... around 600mbps.
;)
Jack with high speed internet? We really are in the 21st century. ;)

Thanks Paul. Don't think we're gonna need private quali this week. Could be a lonely race for some of us. :(
I'll stick some Touring Car Revival cars up for next week. Yves has requested one of the Beamers. That should bump the numbers up a bit. I'll get the event thread posted tonight and tag a few of the guys. :)

Can't make it unfortunately. Didn't / don't get the practise in before the race and for this combo I definitely need that to have fun and not be a liability to others.
But I also plan to participate in as many Thursday races as possible in the future, I love classic race cars :)

Sorry I had to leave so suddenly in the middle of Heat 2. We got a delivery, and I needed to deal with it. Fun racing with a small and talented field. Thanks for hosting, Denis.
