Mighty Entry List for Spa Six Hours

13 Sep 2017
This weekend’s Spa Six Hours has its usual impressive and exhaustive entry, with almost 120-historic cars from across Europe on the provisional entry list. Many cars and drivers that featured at the Goodwood Revival last weekend are back in action, with a host of quick and well-known divers amongst the 300+ names racers.

Rob Huff is down to share the number two Ford GT40 with usual historic partner Richard Meins and Chris Lillingstone Price, but it has also been announced this week that he is standing n for Tom Chilton in the BTCC at Silverstone which could make the logistics of doing both either very impressive or sadly impossible. Nick Padmore is entered in two cars on the list below, though admittedly in the number 18 GT40 it appears to be either him or Andy Wallace teamed up with Richard Meaden and Martin O’Connell in what would be a very strong driving trio whoever is actually in the seat. Padmore is also down to share the number 85 Lotus Elan.

As ever in the race there are potential little gems and cameo performances to watch out for. How far up the grid could Mike Jordan get the number 23 TVR Griffith if let loose in qualifying? Which of the heavy-hitters in the GT40s could take pole? If it rains (an occurrence hardly unknown in Belgium this time of year) could one of the the lightweight Elans sneak a good result? Plus, who can’t smile at the thought of 1970s Formula One hero Arturio Merzario out in an Alfa Romeo Guilia Sprint?
