My favourite photo of a Crosslé 9S Sports racer in action.

The sunlight on the sensuous lines of John Crosslé’s finest creation is expertly captured here by Miguel Araujo of hellofoto.pt at Algarve Classic Festival, October 2018.

Ok, it’s my car, but no apologies for that - it’s a super shot with personal memory of great times in Algarve. With luck, I’ll be back. #news

Waiting for Godot, the Swiss and Green to go!.

Spa Francorchamps circuit is the firm favourite of our drivers.

We have been there for the past 13 years for the annual meet-up of Crosslé 9S Sports racers from across Europe. Sad to miss the 2020 meeting, but this pit lane photo from 2014 is a reminder of what awaits us next year.

As racing this season seems unlikely, we have found a few photos from previous events to keep you entertained. These are from 2015, with less racing and more club spirit we'll endeavour to do this while the Covid-19 situation hinders the chase.

Event report

Friday qualifying, 30 mins. in dry conditions. 15 cars on the grid, well down on previous years.

Our two little Crosslé 9S cars were not daunted by the rapid and high quality machinery qualifying ahead of them - Chevron B19 with a fastest lap of 1:51.231 followed by another B19, McLaren M1B, Chevron B8, McLaren M1B, big engine Ford Capri, Chevron B16 and Lola T70 Mk11.

Steve Ough secured P9 with a time of 2:02.817 and John Taylor took P12 with 2:07.659. Both our boys were disappointed with their times, some 2 seconds down on last year.

Sunday race, 60 mins in dry conditions, following heavy showers.

The midfield action was fast and furious, with no incidents to report. Final result was P1 to the pole sitter Chevron B19 with fastest lap of 1:53.637, followed by McLaren M1B, Chevron B19, Chevron B8, McLaren M1B, Chevron B16. Steve Ough took P7 with best lap of 2:02.052, followed by a Lola T70MK11 with John Taylor in P9, best lap of 2:06.174.

A very creditable performance, well done.
