Algarve Historic Festival
31 Oct 2023
After the successful weekend at Jerez the cars were loaded into the Robinson Race Transport truck and headed straight to The Algarve Historic Festival at Portimao. A quick trip home for our team and then straight back out to meet the cars in Portimao for Thursday testing.
Unlike Spain the weather broke and a weekend of heavy rain was forecast.
Despite heavy showers both races were run in the dry. The final round of the season saw Klaus finish 3rd in the front engine cars in both races and Simon fourth. A great way to finish the 2023 HGPCA season.
Jerez Historic Festival
24 Oct 2023
The Jerez Historic Festival the weekend of 21st/22nd of October saw the cars head to the Spanish sunshine from the English winter. With Portimao in the Algarve Portugal next on the calendar the cars would be away from the workshop for nearly three weeks so a real test of reliability.
The weekend was, as hoped sunny and all cars ran with no mechanical issues. Race 1 saw Simon Hope get third in the front engine cars and first in his individual class 6. Closely followed by Klaus Lehr
Race 2 we had a swap around with Klaus finishing second in the front engined cars and Simon 3rd. Both Maserati's ran faultlessly the weekend and were all good to go for the next round in the Algarve.

The final round for the Peter Auto Series took us to Estoril in Portugal with Guillermo Fiero and his Maserati Birdcage and Porsche 911.
The Porsche running in the 2.0L Cup, a single make series being driven by Guillermo and Steve Hart. Practice and qualifying saw the car line up 16th on the grid and a competitive race saw a 13th place finish,
As the name suggests the The Greatest Trophy is a mix of makes including our Maserati Birdcage, Ferrari, Bizzarrini, Alfa Lister and Porsche.
Race 1 saw Guillermo racing against John Spiers in his Lister Costin the two normally battling in their Maserati 250Fs. Guillermo finishing just half a second behind John to take third. Race 2 saw Guillermo improve on third by taking second place, first place just eluding him by a slow pitstop following the regulations not the pack. A great way to wrap up the Peter Auto 2023 season
