If you look back 50 or 60 years, Easter race meetings were huge, a real 'season starter' for circuits, promoters, competitors and spectators.

Maybe the fact that the Religious holiday bounces about the months of March and April is a factor for organisers?

But as RE says, maybe the huge commercialisation of Easter and lure of hunting chocco bunnies with the ankle biters has changed the holiday for ever.

As for the weather, I've never been so cold in a racing car as I was during that Thruxton Revival (think Avatar pic was from there), but Jarama late March, Goodwood mid / late March are just as bad! If I had my way it would all start when the thermometer is firmly settled on 20 C plus......
