Spa Six-Hours Qualifying - GT40s Dominate

As expected it was the GT40s dominating the top of the timesheet after qualifying for today’s Spa Six-Hour race, Oiver and Grahame Bryant sharing the car with James Cottingham to be quickest by over half a second, The entire top ten is GT40s, John Minshaw and Phil Keen the eleventh in their E-Type that went so well last week at Goodwood the best of the rest.

Where would we put our money? There are strong line-ups all the way down the grid but the trio of Richard Meaden, Nick Padmore and Martin O’Connell looks very well balanced and could be a strong bet for a good finish!
