The first race has happened! Wonderful spring weather in Northern Spain made it an enjoyable location for all participants. A safe, modern race track in Los Arcos, passionate spectators and entertaining action on the track made our first race weekend very special. Perfect hospitality and lots of good food (well, there was some wine also) made for a fantastic ambience. Most spectacular car was Harm Lagaaij`s AVS Shadow from 1970 driven in anger first time after ist restauration. Despite the long winter and an accordingly long preparation span some cars broke in free practice.
