Other brands in Spa were abundant ... in porsche there was 904GTS, 356, A pré A and B, and C, so alot of classic porsches, they tend to be very nice RT cars, some lucious lancias, and other italo-spec cars like a Ferrari Dino, and a Fiat Dino, the english cars, TR4s, MGs, one MINI, etc etc ... not forgetting to mention te pre-wars, with the Bentley Boys, Alvis, Rolls, etc etc ... in fact, there was only one volkswagen 15OOS :-)
Getting ready for the technical control on Friday ... evrything was okay of course ! GO !

The date is set, the time is right, don't miss your appointment with history. History is in the make on DDD 10 !
Ardenne roads 2012 was a blast ... still having some trouble with making stupid mistakes tough ... like buying a brand new clock to easily read the time, but not having the right time on the clock ... that set us back for 120 penalty points the first 5 minutes of the first regularity test on the first day ! what a lovely way to start your day :-) Anyway, finishing 18th in our classic group without a tripmaster (still driving the complete rally with daycounter) with 286.8 penalty points isn't too bad ... deduct the stupid mistake for 120 points and we're set for 9th place ... that will be next year's goal !
nice weather ! we kinda had everything, except snow :-) hail made us seem to be in wintertime, driving trough a white scenery was quite an experience ...
our beloved 15OOS came out quite dirty, and had to wait for a nice scrubbing untill mondaymorning ... car held good, but brakes need some attention now, also dampers need a checkup :-) 100 km/hr on a dirtroad takes its toll. Keep posted for more pix in the following days/weeks ...
IT'S RALLY TIME ... this weekend we're off for the ING ardenne roads rally with the 15OOS rallycar :-) keep posted on http://www.ing.ardenneroads.be/ for participants lists, and results from saturday, sunday, and final classifications ... too bad they give some bad weather, but taht means it will get really cosy in the car :-)
