Entries received in record time!
The 2015 event has seen the entry list potentially fill in the quickest time ever and it is great to see such a wide range of cars and experience in the list. It just goes to show that The South Downs Stages is truly an event for everyone. We are delighted to see many of the top Southern tarmac drivers returning and this year we have a little surge of V8 engined cars – 3 x TR7 V8s, a Rover SD1 and for the first time we welcome 2 x Ferrari 308 Michelottos. As a consequence we will run a ‘V8 Challenge’ within the event with a trophy kindly donated by Classic Construction. As always there will be a bit of midnight oil being burned to ensure cars are ready on the day. None more so this year than one of our key event sponsors Paul King, who had a wall jump out in front of him at the last event of 2014 the Rockingham Stages, luckily without injury to either crew member. Our commiserations go to him and we hope that all will be well by Feb 14th. Also as the 2015 event falls on St Valentine’s Day we couldn’t let that pass without offering a mixed crew award as well.
