We had a super time at the Algarve Historic Festival where John Taylor, Hal Catherwood and myself joined a quality grid of 26 entrants for the 1 hour Algarve Classic Sports Cars race.
Weather conditions were great for the weekend, topping 30 degrees for our Sunday race. Final classifications were John in P13, myself in P14 and Hal in P16 – dogged with braking issues all weekend.
Many thanks to Bob Yarwood and Arnie Black (former owner and MD of Crosslé Car Company) for their technical assistance with Hal’s car over the weekend. Also to David Kelly, Gary and Lewis Dunlop for help with the pitstops and search for my detached Hans post!.
All of this should be a powerful incentive for a return next year with greater CRDC numbers to what is now the third biggest historic race meeting in Europe. Congratulations to Diogo Ferrao and his team for presenting a truly great race weekend.
Some great photos shortly on here from Hellofoto.pt

The event is very much of interest and the date falls well for us, a month after Spa Summer Classic and just before the start of UK holiday break. However, it's primarily a Spridget 60th anniversary meeting and at this time there is no race planned which would suit our cars. However, should there be one, CRDC will be happy to encourage drivers to attend. Legendary Circuits always put on an excellent show and this has the potential to be a superb meeting. Few of our drivers have raced at Zandvoort and a quick canvass amongst the keen ones has indicated a desire to attend. Zandvoort will also be very convenient for our European owners and Swiss invitees. I have been in regular contact with the organiser since the event was first mooted at Spa in June. Best racing format for us would be 30 mins qualifying and 2 races of say 40 mins each over 2 days. Rolling start preferred and a mandatory pit stop of 1/2 mins for facilitate driver. We plan to include the fixture on our list for 2018 and the drivers can decide at AGM.

When you have the AGM get a good race calender sorted 3 or 4 continental adventures and 5 or 6 uk venues. Then you will have a race series again. I will buy Champagne and a trophy for the CRDC Drivers Championship 2018. Some different circuits may bring more interest. ... See MoreSee Less

Paul Ricard {Castullette} will be hosting the French GP in 2018 year after a ten year absence fince the last one at Magny Cours. There is an eligible race there run by HVM but it is a long way yet not as far as Portimao. And aslo there is a race at Magny Cours this is slightly closer than Dijon and the town of Nevers is a lovely historic place. The birth place of the Scarlet Pimpernel. ... See MoreSee Less
