>>Dirk de Jager has sent along these shots of the recently restored Peugeot 905 Evo. 1, chassis # EV16,  taken at the Nurburgring yesterday.  Through Dirk we've been able to document many elusive Group C and GTP cars and we will be brining those pages to you in the future.

The tight confines of the 905's cockpit.  The 905's mirror placement was always interesting in that they were mounted within the cockpit and looked back through the driver's side window as the trailing edge of the cockpit quickly came to a teardrop.
Close up of the Peugeot's dash.  On the left hand side you can see oil pressure and water temp (59C = 138F) as well as gear and rpm.
>>Chris Randall brings us news of his Nissan GTP's first run:

"We had the Nissan out for its first test last week prior to its debut outing at Donington this weekend.  As expected, the car really flies.  I was running out of revs at the end of the straight at Snetterton in 6th and the car is geared to about 180 mph!  Unfortunately we had an oil pump failure towards the end of the day but I killed the engine quick enough to avoid any damage.  We are expecting some good results now that the performance is there".


>>A bit of a slow news month.  Here's another preview of my current project, the Allard J2X article.
