    This weekend i'm at snetterton race track from friday until sunday as my brother is in the 2cv 24 hour race!!! Me and the sprayer from work are part of the pit crew in charge of re-fuelling. Cant wait.. its gonna be a good crack. Just hope the weather is good for a change.

    Friday morning is testing then again in the afternoon then there's qualifying sessions in the evevning and night. Saturday there's support races throughout the day then the 2cv's kick off at 5pm for a whole 24 hours of highspeed madness!!!!!

    Next week i'll get some pics up... Wish us luck!

    I'd love to do something like that - I bet it's cheap to get involved, isn't it?

    Sounds like a cracker! Is that the one Richard Hammond took part in a couple of years back?

    These ugly french things are great fun to drive once you get used to the weird gear lever.
    Handle ****,**** performance and the brakes are dreadful but still fun.
    I would love to try this.

    Do you even need to use brakes?, surely a simple lift off and flick it should go round any given corner. :)

    Never driven one prepared for a track but try that on a road going 2cv and it will fall over and damage that two tone paint.
