    Hi John -
    I won’t be competing, there to support Nils-Fredrick Nyblaeus and Jeremy Welch with plenty of cheer.

    Practice appeared to go well for the Healeys on Friday. Wet conditions predicted for Saturday’s races.
    There’s a few pics of just two of the Healey racing.

    The Spa Six Hour is a demanding and grueling event, then add rain and fog and it's a unbelievable race for the professional drivers. To watch the "gentleman" historic drivers run the six hours , three in daylight and three at night was spectacular. With over 100+ cars in the grid (30 GT40's) the Big Healey was way out muscled. Crispin Harris was the top Healey finisher at 68th, my favorite Healey team was the 100M #44 who battled water pump pulley problems and was in the paddock two or three times for repairs and still finished in the 73rd spot.

    Re: Spa Six Hours

    This year I wasn't at Spa 6h but all the years before and 2015 I did race a TR4 in the 6h race.
    Quite an adventure.
    To boldly go, where no man has gone before....
