Thanks for the offer, but I'll pass. I don't have a licence or anything, and I'm not sure it's my thing.

Think of me as Captain Slow, and you're about there! :D

Just to confirm that this Sunday May 25 is Herman's first outing in UK! Thought I would post the intinerary in case you live work nearby!

We will be doing Liverpool to MIJ in Walsall to get second part stainless exhaust system fitted on Thursday
then over to Rutland

and then down from Rutland to Cheltenham on Saturday via Silverstone; then back up to Liverpool for evening Seacat Sunday after racing

If anyone sees me - give a wave!

Huge number of MG ZTs and Rover 75 coming to Prescott- I think they live nearby

look forward to seeing any E21 owners there! We are Competitor no 96 - which means we are parked in top paddock (sadly)

I went to this, what a fantastic day (I went on the Sunday).

The Alpina B6 was stunning, that was the only E21 I saw on the hill unfortunately. There was a 2002 that was awesome, such a fantastic induction sound.

What an event!

great fun- the amount of French cars and spectators was spectacular!

I was put in a post 1971 class against Barry "Whizzo" Williams and modern hot car s(won by Sierra Cosworth Turbo)- so no chance of siverware- I missed the prizegiving as I had to dash for Liverpool Docks for Seacat

Anyway herewith 1 timed run in Herman 59 seconds something in slightly damp conditions - managed a 57 seconds later (but battery in Go Pro had died):



this clip in 2CV captures the event well:
