Our second visit of the year to Spa saw a vastly different weather forecast with rain set for the majority of the weekend. Qualifying on the Friday firstly was for the “Gentleman Drivers” 2 hour race with Jamie Boot driving his newly built lightweight E-Type. With pouring rain and a seventy one car strong field he immediately set about becoming accustomed to the car.
Once again a fabulous weekend’s weather accompanied the most prestigious event of the calendar. Michael was making his debut in the event with Tiff Needell against some of the most famous cars and drivers of a generation.
This was the first race weekend held at Donington following their uncertain times over the past year. Initially we had planned to be taking four cars which included Chris Scragg’s new E-Type, his MK2 and the Broadspeed along with the newly built E-Type for Jamie Boot.
