STOP PRESS
Overnight news from MG ex-pats at Magny-Cours

Weather good, certainly better than here in East Anglia!

Crowds sparse but plenty of track time users.

One Scimitar present, that belonging to Patrice Beauchant.
Chapeau

Well done Patrice !
I have already looked at the photos but half of them won't open for me, is Patrice's SE6a among them ?

On the road I don't drive fast, but I don't slow down for corners
In competition I drive very fast, but not always on the track ...

Here are a few snaps taken by friends on Sunday with some interesting takes on social distancing French style.
Not a bad turn out considering the Covid restrictions.
If the French can do it why can't we?

Sorry no shots of Patrice's 6
If you look again on the official link he may be one of the cars seen on #3 or #63?

Hello all.
The weather was good at Magny-Cours and spectators were quite disciplined. I spent 6 plaisant hours during those Classic Days, after the covid long black-out.
I also met Patrice and his Se6a.

Some pictures...

Thanks John and Erwan
It looks like a good day out, I hope the organisers were content after all their trouble

Thanks for sharing this. Unfortunately I had to cancel my participation and I was in Nevers the week after :cry:

Well done, excellent photos and now video as well!

Thanks for taking the time to post them, such a pity that I could not make it this year.

John
