Just checked
You won the Handicap Team prize by having six cars that finished all races within one of 10/10th teams I put together
You were second in our grid in handicap being beaten by David Clark’s Elite ( which is very well prepared!)
Never did get a tip for putting those teams together!

John, re grid 2 may be its worth to contact the Le Monstre owner/driver and Jowett Jupiter as well? The GB entrants can be targetted, Kieft Sport for example. Grid 6 cars are much more modern.

I think they always keep some room for last minute entrants… Good to see you and DrBob/Iain in the list. The D Type just above your names on the list belongs to a very nice person.

John, sorry for the stupid question, but what do you call a "team"? I guess you're for cars already accepted but what about the nationality et all?

Two of the major prizes are the two team prizes.
Based on one car from each of the six grids.
The two prizes are based on overall positions and second on handicap.
You are allowed to form your own team which helps in that the six cars share same designated pit box.
Teams that have included cars from people on here have been placed and won prizes on fifteen occasions since 2002

It would be sensible for them to be in same team

Sure John, I give them another call right away. Some French in a British team, this brings back the Bentley boys spirit. Spirit only, I remember you dont like those trucks that much…

Unlikely for us to have anything to do with Bentley Tractors!
They have their own race for specials before main race starts!
