ferdi. interesting comment by lotus. does this mean that Pirelli will be unable to bring in the new tyres, as it needs unanimous agreement for a mid season change? but there again, FI vetoed a structural change, but Pirelli went ahead. this whole mess will take a lot of sorting out!

maybe Pirelli will have to bring both types of tyres to all races, so individual teams can choose which type they want to use at whatever race?

Richard, Sunny, Completely off topic but it may be of interest to you both, oldracingcar.co.uk are selling Jim Clark's Lotus Cortina road car, a one off by Colin Chapman with Elan independent suspension and modified engine. It was given to Clark to test and he liked it so much he never gave it back. It's price on application. I'm thinking of selling the house and a kidney....
They also have a '66 Coombs Mk11 Jag 3.8 which might be right up your street Richard, only £95,000 loose change to you mate!

ty. unfortunately there are a number of coombs jags, but most are replicas . I wonder if it is a genuine one? onlya couple were actually built. I have enough problems with my own, non coombs , one. rotor chewed the distributor, and I have now converted to electronic.

have a look t the article about rbr open house. I sent some info to you there!
