Can you keep us updated on this book, please?
I searched for Andrew Cotton and his previous works, but couldn't find any besides a few Haynes workshop manuals and Porsche Motorsport yearbooks.

Andrew is Michael's son.............Michael is enjoying a well deserved retirement.

Andrew is the editor of RaceCar Engineering and contributes to many other magazines around the world. He is recognised as one of the premier writers on the endurance sportscar scene.

He was commissioned by St├ęphane Ratel to write this celebration of a quarter of a century of GT Racing

https://www.chaters.co.uk/prod/20248...s-of-gt-racing

I understand that there are several other books in the pipeline.

The Bentley book will be published in the Spring.

I will keep you appraised of the progress.

I am confidant that it will be more affordable than some of the excellent volumes that have appeared this year.

I will keep this thread updated.

Sweet! The salt water batteries are cool, but are they truly only one-time-use?

NO. You use them over and over again. Have to clean the contacts afterwards. They're a lot less powerful than the ordinary batteries, but that may be because I haven't got the salt/water ratio right yet!

Awesome! Just saw a video claiming that they are single use, so great to hear it is not the case.
Really hope to see them in Denmark then!

Wouldn't be a lot of point to them being single use. If you only bought one car you could only run it once! Actually twice, as you get two batteries with each car. But only running it once wouldn't be much of a 'green' achievement would it? (You also get a filling tube where the standard amounts of water and salt are enough to fill the cars about 50 times.....).

I received some sad news last evening. A very good old friend died late on Tuesday night. Noone here (other than Bentley03, AllonFS or tonypowe knew him) but some will have heard me talk of my trips to Le Mans in years past with 'The Tourists'. Ian was the 'Chief Tourist' and I had known him for the best part of 40 years, originally in a professional capacity. He went down with cancer 4-5 years ago and sadly lost the battle on Tuesday. The only saving grace was that he died at home with his family. With everything else that's going on, I guess there will be no possibility of attending his funeral either....

Sorry to hear Ayse. I know in Denmark an extra funeral will be offered once the situation is over, so more people are able to attend. I hope the same will be offered for you and all who knew him.

I know the feeling. My brother-in-law is currently under the care of hospice, at the bitter end of his battle with cancer. I feel terrible that I cannot be there with my sister and my nephew, but they are all the way on the opposite coast, and they are sheltered in place. Besides the fact it wouldn't be a good idea to get a group of people together right now.

I do recall reading about the Tourists in your blog posts, and your friend Ian. I'm sorry for your loss.
