They will have quite a few International competitors I imagine who will not be able to get into the UK with 14 days quarantine....

The provisional date for race 2 British GP is same as for the Festival.
Wonder which will take precedence?

The GP has just been confirmed on two consecutive weekends. So Goose's option 1 is - er - Goosed.

Who'd want to try and organise a major sporting event?

- Can't guarantee the date
- Can't guarantee whether it will even be allowed to go ahead
- Can't guarantee anyone will want to race, exhibit or spectate

What a nightmare. I so feel for them.

It is and what you have to do in this situation is to do things that are in your control. I an generalising here and not talking about the SC specifically.

Look at the elements...

Government guidance - out of your control
Progression of the virus - out of your control
Restrictions on International Travel - out of your control
Other events impacting on your event - out of your control

Under your control
Postponing - hoping for a date when some or all of the above may be favourable
Cancelling - judging that all of the above makes organising your event as you intended impossible/not viable and doing what you can to mitigate further costs.

What you can't do is watching your event date getting nearer and nearer and you as the organiser and some of the people involved accumulating more costs/commitment. Late in the day cancellations are the worst, so referring back to the SC I think to make their next call by the end of May is correct.

Many event organisers have already made this judgement for events that are into the future.
