Simply enquiry. Does anyone have any more details of this race beyond what is on the non-championship sports car website?

That site shows the Nathan Astra as #8 but Roger Nathan has a photo that he is sure is from that event (he only went there once) and the car is #9.

This is important because it is a photo he would like to put in his new book, but doesn't want to get the caption wrong because of the reaction of people like us to mistakes in books! :lol:

There's a thread about this race at another forum:


One of the photos there shows the Astra but it's impossible to make out the number on the car. There's also a close-up of the cars rear-view mirror :drunk:

Is the Astra of Roger Nathan the same car that was driven on several occasions in 1970 by Guy Edwards?

There’s a photo in the Autosport report, but unfortunately the number’s partially obscured & it could be either 8 or 9. (Barry, I can e-mail you a scan if its any help).
