Nyssa Racing 2004 Season

2003 was not a vintage year for Nyssa Racing. Pre-season development problems with the Y10 culminated in the running of a big end whilst being mapped on the rolling road. Budget constraints prevented an easy repair and caused the absence of the Y10 for the whole season. All was not totally lost - we were able to borrow cars from Tony Soper, Mike Watson and Graham Scott Racing and surprisingly managed to amass enough points for yet another 3rd place, this time in Class A.
2003 also marked the end of the Le Mans Auto-Italia as we knew it. For 2004, the series will be known as Le Mans Euro Saloons, the change in name reflecting new regulations that allow cars originating from all over Europe to join in the fun. At this time, we wait with baited breath to see which drivers and cars will be attracted to the series, and look forward to a successful 2004 for both Nyssa Racing and the new Le Mans Euro Saloons championship.
Nyssa Racing will continue to support the Le Mans Euro Saloons championship for 2004 and will be racing the Lancia kappa saloon as shown in the artist's impression above.
The revised race dates for the 2004 season are below - as with last year, no trip to Donington Park and still no debut at Rockingham for us. This year also loses Castle Combe from the calendar, but there is a welcome return to Anglesey where we enjoyed racing in previous seasons. Maybe my rant at the BRSCC got read as Silverstone is now back on the calendar, not once but twice in May.
