No, I'm warm and dry at home!  

We're aiming to run a full season in 2021 - so we decided to take our time with the car rebuild.  The Team Principal is at Snet though, managing the Blueberry Muffins entry.

I happen to know two of the Muffins drivers... 

Im not going to lie 2CV racing does look a lot of fun!

Yep, we're here.  26th on the grid.  

Team Principal smacked the barrier hard early in qualifying yesterday - he's OK and the mechs rebuilt the front end with the prepared spare panels in twenty minutes.  No mechanical damage, though the engine tinware was a bit squashed.

Practice in an hour or so; race at 1545.  Yes, that IS @Talbot on the right...

Lost engine #1 after an extended safety car period and grid parc fermé (two cars had thrown the contents of their sumps over the circuit) - engine #2 now in.  

Twenty minutes from tow-in (3 lap penalty) to rejoining.

Still in 25th, 98 laps behind the leader and 14 adrift of the next place.  Engine #3 went in around 3am, and the car has circulated reliably since.  We have established the issues with the main race engines, to be rectified on rebuild.  One Weber is fit only for spares now.

All good fun.

The inestimable @Talbot and I were throwing around the theoretical idea of an Autoshite entry (in beige with a brown vinyl roof, natch) and your name came up...

Cost would  be high, for a 2 CV plus 3 engines alone.

Well now you have something to write for the next column default_icon_smile.gif

If this is serious go-er of an idea, I can and will supply a 2CV bodyshell, axles etc

Having said that maybe a few of us chipping in will buy a better 2CV complete?

I don’t have everything needed anymore but will happily be part of this

*edit* I should have replied to chaseracer and not Richard, sorry, poor forum skillz, i shall go and prostate myself in front of a brown allegro as penance
