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.
Right folks, as this Covid -19 continues we have noticed a few quizzes around, so here's one for race fans. Please leave comments as you wish, however it's quite a tricky one - guess which circuit, and as a bonus point can you guess the 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.
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. Photos from Ian.

Our last race meeting of the season and for a variety of reasons just two Crosslé 9S Sports racers will participate, well below our anticipated entry. Steve Ough and John Taylor will fly the CRDC flag at this prestigious race meeting.
As a taster, here are a few photos to remind us what we are missing. Race report and pics from Ian in due course. ... See MoreSee Less
Following the summer holiday break, we have a great 750MC fixture on Saturday 7 September with a 40 minutes race at Brands Hatch on the Grand Prix circuit. This will be a popular race for which early entry is recommended. Full details on the 750 MC website.

The timetable for Portimao meeting will be released shortly. I have been advised that the format for the Algarve Sports Cars race will change this year to a single 1 hour race with a compulsory pit stop for refuelling and/or driver change. Long range tanks are recommended. Please contact me regarding transportation arrangements.
