News from Germany - The Bock/Ahlers Plus 8 was 130th (!) in Qualifying on Friday going round the Nurburgring in 11.00.69. There are literally hundreds of cars in this 24 Hour race, Keith tells me it takes 2-3 hours just to form up the grid ! Quote below from the http://www.Dailysportscar.Net website...

It would be a bit daft to enter Snet if the others didnt exist,so I suspect MMC and Richard Thornes staff will be burning the midnight oil getting them finished,after all this is racing If you've bought the 'package' the entries are in there - may be an attempt to 'bolster' the cause whilst the Fac...

As I understand it - the Motorsports package included entry to 10 Championship Rounds and hence the number of cars in the Invitation Class.

I wonder how many have actually been built ??

No news directly from Keith - but not great I'm afraid. Listening over the internet on Embassy Race Radio - the very busy first lap had a few casualties and I caught a comment "the Morgan running last with its rear bodywork damaged"... Unfortunately the Aero8 was running near the back of the field f...

The Aero8 went well in Free Practice on Satuday morning running near the front of GT3 Keith Ahlers 1.12.8 Oliver Bryany 1.12.9 So Oliver is obviously not afraid of the car (or the owner) ! The 30 minute Qualifying session for Sunday's 2-hour Race saw them post 1.13.009 for 8th in Class, however 1st ...

Hello Keith, Billy, Ian, & Oliver,

James and I hope to catch up with you at Donington, bringing back memories of where it all started two years ago.

I'll try and do my usual Qualifying/Race round-up reports.

Go show 'em guys and;

Keep It On The Island
