    I will avoid wordplay temptation regarding the name of choice for the trophy, however it is very hard… ;-)  But yes, very fun evening, as always!

    Spa Lyons will look forward to hosting a similar event in the near future, also on a Friday evening.  As such, Team Ecurie Lyons would like to reserve # 2 for entry,  car(s) yet to be determined if the stewards shall allow.

    Danke, Merci, and thank you

    There is a lot of information provided to those that log in to access it. The “racelaptimes” report from the first heat is very interesting – it reveals much more than I thought even after racing in some of those heats. Fascinating!

    Later on… what the lap times reveal for one competitor is that the floor did not slow the car down – the set screw worked its way loose much later on which did… interesting…

    A benefactor has approached the Ecurie Lyons team offering generous sponsorship, under the proviso they number at least one of their entries #2, therefore, management has elected to rescind #24, and would like #2 added in it’s place.
